Paul Evans

I have been privileged to be a Parent Governor at St Lawrence’s for the last three and half years. I have two children at the school and a vested interested that the school is doing all that it can to help all of the pupils to the best of their abilities. Living in Preston allows me to visit the school on an ad-hoc or formal basis where I can either speak to the staff or the pupils bout their school and the tasks ahead of them. We have a diverse governing body which brings great benefit to our school, I work in finance which means I can support the school with projections for both educational purposes and for a financial perspective too. We operate an excellent school at St Lawrence’s and I am pleased to be involved with its vision, outlook and more importantly its pupils.


Mrs Pat Jones – Foundation Governor

 I am honoured to be appointed as a Foundation Governor to St. Lawrence’s School.   The role of the Foundation Governor is that of being a representative of St. Lawrence’s Church, where I am an active member. It is a privilege to work with St. Lawrence’s school, to witness the spiritual growth of the children and to see the ethos of the school in action.  This is my second term as Governor, the first being a Community Governor from 2010 to 2014.

Rachel Voiculescu – Parent Governor

Rachel-VoiculescuI am Rachel Voiculescu, one of the Parent Governors at St Lawrence. I am mummy to one child currently in Year 3 and another child who will start school in September 2016. Prior to becoming temporarily retired and taking on the role of full time mummy, I was a Primary School Teacher. I believe in education and am passionate about the importance of children’s introduction to, and early experience of, education and the very important role that Primary School Teachers have in that experience. I believe that my professional experience together with my current role as a parent gives me a valuable and balanced outlook on helping the “St Lawrence Family” to be the best they can be.


Mrs Helen Ashby – Co-opted Governor


I first became a Parent Governor in September 2010, and then moved to become a Community Governor.  I am a qualified Doctor, who works full time in many West Midlands Hospitals.
