Julia McGrath – Chair Governors


I am thrilled to be the Chair of Governors  at Lawn Primary School and have been in this role for more than six years.  It is a real privilege to work in such a special school with a fantastic staff team. I am committed to ensuring that our school can provide the very best opportunities for all of our children.


An important part of my role, along with colleagues on the governing body, is to meet at regular intervals throughout the school year.  We act as a sounding board and critical friend to challenge and check appropriate decisions are made for our children’s progress based on information received from the senior management at the school. We also review policies such as attendance, grievance, bullying etc.


I am a member of all the governing body committees and currently chair both the School Improvement and Community Resources Committees. I am also the responsible Governor for the monitoring of Safeguarding within the school.


Outside of the school, I work for a global pharmaceutical company, and have been with this company since 1986.   I have a background in Human Resources and I am a Chartered Member Chartered Institute of Personnel Development (MCIPD).
