Our Academy


The purpose of the Interim Executive Board (IEB) is to provide interim expertise and high quality governance to address the school’s concerns and put in place a strategy for sustainable improvement, including the promotion of high standards of educational achievement.

The IEB has all the responsibilities of a normally constituted governing body, but additionally it is charged with conducting the school, “so as to secure, as far as is practicable to do so, the provision of a sound basis for future improvement in the conduct of the school”. The IEB combines the non-executive role of a governing body with a more operational role in order to bring about rapid improvement.

Our IEB Members for 2021 are:

The Directors of the Diocese of Southwell and Nottingham Multi Academy Trust (SNMAT) are seeking to recruit governors to join the Interim Executive Board of The West Grantham Church of England Primary and Secondary Academies.  SNMAT is a successful and expanding MAT based in Southwell, Nottinghamshire whose core purpose is to make things better for the pupils and communities that its partner academies serve.

The Academies joined SNMAT in January 2021 and are seeking to grow their Interim Executive Board with committed, enthusiastic governors with the skillset to support and challenge the leadership in equal measure.

It is not essential that applicants have previous experience of working in a school.  We are seeking to recruit individuals with or looking to gain experience at working at a strategic level and share our vision to champion and rejoice in those we serve, creating an environment where excellence is achieved and potential fulfilled.

If you are interested in applying to become a governor, please contact the Clerk, Mrs Julie Swatton, by email to jswatton@wgacademy.org.uk or by telephone on 01476 589261.
