Governing Body

Twydall Primary Local Governing Board is a partnership of parents, staff, pupils and governors.  It is part of the Rainham Mark Education Trust (RMET).  The Local Governing Body (LGB)  has three core functions:

1.      1. ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction

2.      2. working with the school leadership to maximise educational achievement for pupils and the performance management of staff; and

3.      3. overseeing the financial performance and ensuring money is well spent

The Governing Body’s responsibilities are delegated by the Trust, via the Terms of Reference, which can be seen here.   Much responsibility is further delegated to monitoring pairs of governors who visit up to 3 times a year to check progress against the school's development plan and strategic objectives.

Parent & Staff Governors are an important part of the Governing Body and elections are held when vacancies arise.  If you are interested in becoming a Co-opted Governor, please email the Clerk,  Mel Greener

You can contact the governing body through the school or by email via the Clerk.
