Decision Maker: Corporate Director of Children and Young People's Services

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


To apply to the Department for Education for powers to appoint an Interim Executive Board (IEB) at Braeburn Primary and Nursery School

Reasons for the decision:

PLEASE NOTE This decision was originally published on or near the date of the decision and so call in no longer applies. It has been re-published as part of the change in committee management system that we use.

Braeburn went into Special Measures in June 2017. In October 2017 the RSC named Ebor Academy Trust as the preferred Academy sponsor. Despite a package of improvement support, the board has not succeeded in driving improvement rapidly enough. This leaves the school at risk of further decline, which we believe will be best remedied by an IEB. Ebor Academy Trust is supportive of the establishment of an IEB. The LA now proposes to use its statutory intervention powers to apply to the DfE for approval to establish an Interim Executive Board to secure effective governance and rapid school improvement
The report considered by the Corporate Director contains information of the type defined in paragraphs 1, 2 and 3 of Part 1 of Schedule 12A Local Government Act 1072 (as amended) and is therefore exempt from publication.
