Reflecting and Looking Forward
On 21st September 2021, the first OWN Trustee Board Meeting of the year took place.
OWn Trustees Mary Foreman (Chair), David Perkins (Vice-Chair) and Stuart Mansell (CEO) met at Nene Valley Primary School to reflect on the past year and to look forward to the year ahead and beyond.
The meeting focussed on:
- the impact of COVID
- an analysis of pupil outcomes throughout the Trust
- a review of finances and staffing
- safeguarding, Special Needs and governance updates.
- a review of the 2020-21 Trust improvement Plan and focus for 5-year strategic plan and growth
It was noted that there is excellent attendance at all schools. Attainment and progress outcomes are very good, based on internal assessments. Management of COVID is working well, with minimal impact in any of the schools. Outbreak management plans are in place in case the situation occurs.
The Trust Board meets at least termly, with additional committee meetings in between for finance, Human Resources, Audit and Risk and Standards. Please see the Calendar of Events for more details.
