Our Community MAT

Our Community Multi Academy Trust is a group of town, city and village schools that have joined together to provide the very best education for the children in our care and where we believe that education is very much a matter of the individual.

Local Governance at Petham

At Petham we have a Local Monitoring Council (LMC) for Dymchurch & Petham. It consists of the Headteacher, members of staff, parents and other interested parties. 

The LMC is chaired by one of its members and it provides local challenge to the Headteacher using the published School Improvement Plan as a basis for monitoring.
