Interim Executive Board

Ruskin Academy is currently governed locally by an Interim Executive Board (IEB).

As an academy, the ‘Trustees’ are accountable for the quality of education being provided. The Trustees appoint people to serve on the Interim Executive Board to hold the local senior leadership team to account for standards and safeguarding.  Through this, the Trust ensures strong local governance of each academy and retains a clear line of sight into the performance of each academy within its community. 

The Interim Executive Board has a range of responsibilities including:

  • supporting good governance of the school
  • safeguarding and promoting the Trust’s values
  • supporting the Head of School and being a critical friend
  • monitoring achievement, quality of teaching, behaviour and safety
  • engaging with the school’s key stakeholders, for example, parents/carers, pupils and staff

Members of the Interim Executive Board are appointed by the Trust:

Robin Thompson-Clarke (Trustee, Chair of IEB)
Justin James (Trust CEO)
Hayden Tyers (Director of Schools)
Debbie Morrison (Regional Director)
