The Wren School Governing Body

History

The Wren School Governing Body was initially appointed by the Members of The Wren School Academy Trust on 8 June 2015 and included parents, staff and members of the community. As Trustees and Directors, governors ensured the strategic direction of the school, accountability throughout the school and financial probity.  The academy transferred to Excalibur Academies Trust on 1st February 2019 and three Trustees of The Wren School Academy Trust remain to wind up and close the company in May 2019.  Minutes of The Wren School Academy Trust are available on request.    Please contact the Clerk to Governors, Jo Hackett at clerktogovernors@wren.excalibur.org.uk.

Current

The Wren School Local Governing Body acts as a Local Academy Committee for Excalibur Academies Trust and the LGB works alongside the headteacher and her senior leaders to support and challenge their work. It is responsible for the conduct of the school and for promoting high standards. The LGB aims to ensure that children are attending a successful school which provides them with a good education and supports their well-being. Minutes of the meetings of The Wren School Local Governing Body and the Excalibur Academies Trust are available on request.  Please contact the Clerk to Governors, Jo Hackett at clerktogovernors@wren.excalibur.org.uk.
