Lionwood Junior School and Lionwood Infant and Nursery School became part of Inclusive Schools Trust in April 2017.
Our Trustees are responsible for the strategic vision of the schools and for supporting the Senior Leadership Teams and staff in achieving that vision. Trustees have responsibility for appointing the Executive Headteacher, managing the school’s budgets, setting annual targets and monitoring performance against those targets, all in the interest of raising standards of achievement.
The Chair of Trustees is Eileen Hansell.
Each School in the Trust has a ‘Link Trustee’ that visits the school regularly to discuss issues with staff and senior leaders, attends school events and represents the Trust at School Progress Boards. Lionwood Junior School’s Link Trustee is Mrs Sue Brockhurst.
We have two Strategic Committees in our Trust:
- Finance, Audit and Risk
- Achievement, Standards and Risk
These committees meet twice a term and report back to the full Board on all business, including safeguarding. The full Board of Trustees meet twice a term. Trustees visit the school regularly, attending events and undertaking learning walks in order to effectively monitor the quality of learning at The Lionwood Schools Federation.
A Declaration of Pecuniary or Personal Interests is signed annually by every Trustee. In every committee and full Trust meeting, there is space on the agenda for any declaration of interests that arise over the year.
