Secondment of Director of Education Announcement

By Stuart Mansell, CEO, OWN Trust

OWN Trust is very pleased to announce the temporary secondment to OWN Trust of Sarah Levy, as Director of Education for the summer term.

Sarah has been Headteacher at Old Fletton Primary School for many years, guiding the school through several successful Ofsted inspections and many other achievements. Since September 2022, she has been working with OWN Trust on Mondays to develop a range of quality assurance processes and the Trust’s model for school improvement. This has already supported the establishment of regular Quality of Education meetings with each school, in addition to reporting systems for accountability to the Trust.

As part of OWN Trust’s plans for supporting the transition to a new Chief Executive Officer as well as securing an effective framework for Trust growth and wider provision, Sarah and Old Fletton governors have been approached to increase the time to four days per week for the summer term. We are very pleased that Sarah has said yes, and that Old Fletton’s Governing Body has approved the secondment for this short period.

Sarah will take up her post on the 15th of April and will work with OWN Trust central team and Executive Leadership until the 19th of July. During that time she will be securing the quality assurance process for all the schools in the Trust and leading on Trust self-evaluation against the government’s new Trust Quality Descriptors for education. This will support any future applications for growth. She will report to the OWN Trust Quality of Education Committee, providing a valuable role in creating a platform for the new CEO, Lorraine Greco, to build upon.
