Welcome to our Governance Section

Welcome to the Governance area of our website. The Governance responsibilities include the main functions as identified by the Department for Education (October, 2020):

  •  Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction; 
  •  Holding executive leaders to account for the educational performance of the organisation and its pupils, and the effective and efficient performance management of staff; 
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the organisation and making sure its money is well spent

In January 2022, the Governing Body was replaced by an Interim Executive Board (IEB) at the direction of the Regional Schools Commissioner.  This is a smaller and more experienced group of individuals who are required to work on the rapid improvement of the school.  As the name suggests, it is a temporary measure and the longer term goal is to return governance functions to the new Governing Body.  

The IEB will operate differently to a Governing Body: each member will carry specific responsibilities and will report on the area at very regular meetings of the Board.  We do not have a committee structure.

Members of the IEB are:

Matt Hood - Chair

Lorrayne Hughes

Lesley Nixon

Joyce Keetley
