how we work

Saoirse Waldorf School, trading as Dublin Steiner School, is a company limited by guarantee and registered charity. Our charity number is 20077181. We are run entirely on a non-profit basis.


The Board of Trustees is the governing body of Dublin Steiner School, made up of volunteers who work on an unpaid basis. The trustees work alongside school leadership and the teaching staff to support the school as it grows.

what do the trustees do?

Collectively, the trustees are responsible for:

  • Setting overall strategy, with the aim of continuing the growth of the school and guarding against risk
  • Ensuring that the school complies with all relevant legislation
  • School finances and fundraising
  • Developing the school building and facilities
  • Strengthening the community of school families

While the board makes decisions collaboratively, individual trustees take responsibility for different functions depending on their experience and skills.
