Governors - Interim Executive Board

The governance at Round Oak school was changed during the summer of 2019 and this is a message from the chair of the new body, called the Interim Executive Board (IEB).

"Warwickshire County Council has disbanded the schools governing board and replaced it with an Interim Executive Board (IEB). The members of the IEB have significant experience of working with and teaching children and young adults with learning needs, also of school improvement and governance. It is anticipated that the IEB will be in place for one year until September 2020 at which time the school should return to standard governance arrangements."

A letter was sent to all parents, grandparents and carers on Tuesday 04 September explaining the new arrangements and you can read this letter from the download link at the bottom of this page.
