Governing Body

Twydall Primary School is a partnership of parents, staff, pupils and governors.  The Chair and Vice Chair of the Local Governing Body are appointed by the RMET (Rainham Mark Education Trust).

The Governing Body has a wide ranging role and is responsible for the overall operation of the school, including making sure the school’s finances are operated and spent effectively, promoting high standards of achievement for all pupils, appointing staff, reviewing policy and ensuring the school’s curriculum is broad and balanced.

The Governing Body's responsibilities are delegated by the Trust via the Terms of Reference which can be seen below. 

Many responsibilities are delegated to monitoring pairs who visit the school up to 3 times per year.

Parent Governors are an important part of the Governing Body and elections are held when vacancies arise and information asking for nominations is distributed to all parents.

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