At Weelsby Academy, we understand that starting school is an important step in your child’s life and we aim to make your child’s time with us as happy, enjoyable and successful as we possibly can.

We believe very strongly in a meaningful partnership with parents. Staff and Interim Education Board members all work together to support your child’s learning to help them achieve the best they can. 

Your views are important to us and we welcome your comments on how well the academy is doing and ways in which you think we can improve.  

The role of the Interim Education Board

The Interim Education Board is a corporate body. They have considerable responsibilities working as part of a governing body but not as individuals.

The Interim Education Board sets the general direction of the school, with the main aim always being to provide a high standard of education for all pupils of all abilities.

Members do not intervene in the day-to-day management of the school as this is the role of the Head of Academy and senior leadership team.

The main role of the Interim Education Board is to:-

  • Help the academy to set high standards by planning for the school’s future and setting targets and priorities for school improvement.
  • Constantly keep the work of the academy under review, developing, agreeing and reviewing policies to ensure they will help to raise standards.
  • Have a clear understanding of the work of the academy, offer support and advice but also questioning and challenging in order to make improvements.
  • Help the academy respond to the needs of parents and the wider community
  • Hold the academy accountable to the public for what it does.

The Interim Education Board must have a professional attitude and use its collective skills to benefit the children, parents and community.
