The Howard Partnership Trust

Governance Board - IAB

Meadhurst Primary is now proud to be part of The Howard Partnership Trust. An Interim Academy Board (IAB) is in place to support the School Leadership Team.

The primary focus of the Governors on the IAB is to ensure that school leaders are held to account for progress against the School Improvement Plan.

Working collaboratively with the Leadership Team and the Trust Board, the IAB is responsible for the strategic direction of the school. This includes challenging the progress made against the objectives outlined in the School Improvement Plan, as well as implementation of policies, oversight of the school budget and ensuring the highest levels of safeguarding practice in the school.

The IAB meet on a half termly basis to hold the Head to account. Each IAB member has responsibility for specific areas of school improvement.

If you would like to know more or wish to raise issues with the governors please contact the Clerk to the Governors, Sonia Druce.

The following table shows the members of our 2020-21 IAB and their role and responsibility:
