Monega Primary School has a Local Governing Body.  The role of a Local Governing Body is an important one. It is to provide focused governance for the School at a local level and it is the intention of the Trust Board to ensure that the responsibility to govern the School is vested in those closest to the impact of decision-making.  The Local Governing Body monitors the School's key performance indicators and acts as a critical friend to the Headteacher and the School's senior leadership team, providing challenge where appropriate.

Local Governing Bodies carry out their functions in relation to their respective School on behalf of the Trust Board and in accordance with policies determined by the Trust Board.  The act of delegation from the Trust Board to the Local Governing Body's is a delegation of powers and duties, and not a delegation or shedding of responsibilities.



Mrs E Kemp - Chair of Governor (Safeguarding)

I have been a School Governor for many years and currently a Governor at two Newham schools as well as Monega.  I like to travel, go to museums, art galleries and the theatre as well as visiting gardens plus sometimes doing my own.  I am a retired National Health Service manager and live in Forest Gate.

Mr S Riaz - Vice Chair of Governor (Finance, Pupil Premium, Health & Safety)

I currently work in Financial Services and I live in both London and Manchester.  I love travelling and try to visit new towns and cities across the globe to learn about other cultures and to broaden my perspective.  I have been a Governor at Monega for over two years.  It has been an amazing experience so far, helping to strengthen and grow the Governing Board and supporting the school in making incredible progression.

I am an experienced leader in education and started my teaching career in Woolwich in 1997.  Over the last 21 years I have worked in local Newham schools.  I have a strong history of inclusive education in the London Borough of Newham and have worked as a specialist speaker at inclusive conferences in many parts of the world.

At present I am working and have been living in Newham for the past 15 years.  I am an Adult Social Care Professional.  I am a mother of two and very much involved in their education.  I believe education is a solution to all problems, so I have chosen to be a Governor and contribute towards change.
