Welcome to the Governing Body page for Riverside Primary School.
Our Governing Body consists of staff, parent and co-opted governors who meet 5 times per year. We also have monitoring pairs which carry out monitoring visits several times per year.
As a Local Governing Body, our responsibilities are delegated by Rainham Mark Education Trust (RMET) via the Terms of Reference. The latest version can be viewed by following this link, where you can also find descriptions of our roles as governors and a copy of RMET's code of conduct.
The three core roles of Governing Bodies are as follows:
For information about our current members, please see below. You can find out more about our work in our Annual Governance Statement:
Members of the Governing Body:
Parent governors are elected by parents and carers; staff governors are elected by school staff. Co-opted governors are volunteers from the wider community. All governors are formally appointed by RMET for a 4 year term, with the exception of the head teacher who remains a governor so long as they are in post.
