Governors

Arrangements for Governance at Garboldisham Church Primary

The Department for Education in London established an independent Interim Executive Board (IEB) on 6th January 2020 to govern the school for the immediate future, replacing the previous Governing Body.

Like any school governing body, the IEB is responsible for the strategic oversight of the school, including the management of the budget, the curriculum, staffing, pay and performance management.  The IEB’s main function is to secure a sound basis for future improvement in the school, including the promotion of high standards of educational achievement.

There are three members of the IEB, all of whom have extensive experience in school governance:

  • Rosemary Kett: Previously a Senior Leader for Intervention and County Headteacher for Norfolk County Council. Currently an Associate for NCC, she carries out the role of Performance Officer for the authority. She also works as a freelance Education Consultant. She has undertaken governance roles in a number of Norfolk schools, and has extensive experience of work on Improvement Boards.
  • Doug Dale: An Adviser for the Education Quality Assurance and Intervention Service (Norfolk Children’s Services).  He is an experienced adviser with particular strengths in school leadership, and teaching and learning and also as a County Headteacher for many years.  He has vast experience in Improvement Board and IEB activity.
  • Pam Wells: Currently working for the Diocese of Norwich St Benet’s MAT as a Governance Improvement Associate. She has been a headteacher and worked extensively as in various local authorities as an Improvement Adviser. Pam has vast experience working with governors and with Interim Executive Boards.

 

The I.E.B has an independent Clerk – Ann Morgan from Educator Solution.

The IEB will undertake all the statutory responsibilities of a governing body.
