Governance & Policies

Primary School Council

The Primary School Council is made up of the Primary School Director and parent and teacher representatives, and looks after all questions relating to the infant and junior classes in relation to education, daily life, equipment, hygiene and safety.  All decisions voted by the Primary School Council must be ratified by the School Council if related to the organisation of the school or by the Board of Management if of a budgetary nature.

There are as many parent representatives on the Primary School Council as there are classes.

The representatives are elected for the school year.  They facilitate relations between parents and staff.  They may approach the school direction to raise a problem or to mediate at the request of one or more parents.

Before the Primary School Council, the parent delegates compile the parents’ question then forward questions to do with the class to the teacher, and questions to do with the school in general to the school direction.

Board of Management

The Board of Management consists of a maximum of 10 Governors who are elected by the members of Ecole Franco-Irlandaise CLG (LFI’s legal entity name) from amongst their number. At least 6 Governors must be parents of pupils currently enrolled at LFI. The Board can co-opt Governors as required, but only from amongst members of Ecole-Franco-Irlandaise CLG. Each Governor has one vote at board meetings.

The members of Ecole Franco-Irlandaise CLG are appointed by the French Ambassador, and must include at least 6 parents nominated by an annual meeting of parents.

In addition the Board of Management can include ex-officio and invited attendees with advisory roles

The Board runs the school and makes decisions in relation to its financial management and locally employed staff members.  It takes the headmaster’s or headmistress’ opinion into account as well as that of the School Council in relation to any decision relating to education or the day-to-day running of the school.

All parents or guardians of LFI pupils are eligible to join the Board of Management (as is also the case for the school councils).  All parent members act on a purely voluntary basis.  The Board of Management usually meets once a month.

The Board can be contacted at bom@lfi.ie for any questions or comments you may have.  Please note that all correspondence goes directly to the Board and will be kept confidential.
