Who the members of the IEB are and their key responsibilities

Frankie Chissim

Chair of the IEB

Education Consultant
I was appointed as Chair of the Interim Executive Board in February 2016, and I am also currently the Chair of Governors at Holy Cross Catholic Primary School in Thurrock.
I work full time as an education consultant, with specialisms in social cohesion, children’s rights, safeguarding and SMSC (Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural) Education. I have a degree in International Development and spent my early career working for various Non Governmental Organisations (NGOs) and schools in Africa and London. Over the past 10 years I have become increasingly involved in supporting leadership teams in schools, particular in the area of school governance. I have supported the Local Authority in a number of roles over the past 3 years, including working with IEBs, progress boards and governing boards to secure rapid school improvement.

I am the Thurrock School Improvement Manager leading on school improvement for the Local Authority. I currently work with several schools to support raising the quality of provision as well as working with the Thurrock Teaching Schools to ensure school improvements across the borough.


Prior to taking on this role I have been a school improvement officer, a literacy and phonics consultant for the borough, as well as a teacher and deputy in high performing primary schools.


I am also an experienced governor, who has in the past held the role of vice chair and chair of governors. I lead on Governor development in Thurrock and much of the work I do focuses on improving the governance in schools.
