Academy Trustees

An academy trust is a charitable company set up to run an academy and is responsible for the strategic direction of the academy. Academy trusts have 2 layers of governance: the members of the trust and the board of Trustees. At Cawston Grange Primary School the board of Trustees meet at least 4 times a year. Some functions are delegated to the Finance, Audit & Risk Committee and the Pay committee. There may also be ad hoc working groups from time-to-time, like during the academy consultation and conversion process.

 

Members -The members are similar to shareholders and have ultimate control over the direction of the academy trust. They ensure the charitable company achieves its objectives, sign off the financial accounts and annual report, and appoint some of the trustees.

 

Trustees - The trustees are responsible for the 3 core strategic functions (strategic direction, holding school leaders to account for educational performance and overseeing the financial performance of the school).

 

Our trustees bring a wide range of skills and experience to the table ranging from accountancy to education to industry. The Trust Board comprises of the Headteacher, staff, parents and representatives of the community or people co-opted onto the Board because of a particular skill, e.g. finance. The term of office for governors is four years.

Since moving to Cawston in June 2013 I have really come to value the community and feel it is a great place to live and bring up my young family.  As a parent governor I currently have one child at the school but am hoping to have all 4 at the school in the coming years.  I have run a Recruitment and Careers Company for the past 10 years and have been able to help and support over 5,000 people in to work and accredited learning during this time.  As a genuine people person I am looking forward to my role as the governor responsible for engaging parents and the local community and I look forward to meeting with many more of you in the coming years.

Glenn Garrett 

I was elected as a co-opted governor in 2014 and work with my fellow governors to promote a school environment where all pupils receive the best education possible from the school. I have lived in Cawston since 2010 and am a father of two school age children. As a Chartered Accountant with over 20 years’ experience in the Gas and Electricity industry I have experience of a wide range of governance matters and helping to ensure that wise decisions are made.

Joanna Wyle 

I have worked in the IT industry for 19 years spending the last 3 focusing in on management. I am on my second year of a business management degree with the Open University and hope to be able to use all of these skills in my role.

I have three children; a daughter in blue strawberry and two sons who attend Cawston.

I am focused and committed to assist the school in achieving its goal of becoming an Ofsted Excellent rated school and look forward to all the work over the next 4 years.  

Dean Harrison

Originally from Yorkshire, I moved to Cawston in 2016 with my wife and son who currently attends nursery. I work as a Policy & Assurance Manager for Network Rail and hold a professional qualification in Risk Management. I have been a member-appointed governor since March 2018 and sit on the Finance, Audit and Risk Committee.  I am responsible for ensuring that the Board of Governors is appropriately trained and has the necessary skills available in order to provide effective governance.

Martin Guerrieria

 

After moving to the area in 2016 I now have two children at the school, and both are clearly benefiting from the wealth of learning and personal development available.  Cawston is a fantastic community and I’ve been inspired to get involved and support the governance of a school clearly central to the identity of the neighbourhood.

I bring a questioning scientific background as part of my own education, and currently work in the market research industry, helping clients establish successful brands and improve their communications; skills that I hope will benefit the school and governance structure

 

Jean Shaw

 

I have lived in Cawston since 2014 and am recently retired having worked in the field of Human Resources for some 35 years.  I have worked in a variety of different sectors: private, public, and not for profit including working for the British Government on the remote island of St Helena in the South Atlantic in the role of HR Executive for some 3 years. I also have experience of teaching and administration within educational establishments albeit at secondary and tertiary level.
My last role has been as a lecturer in Human Resource Management at Warwickshire College which has enabled my students to achieve the professional qualifications required for membership of the CIPD (Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development) an essential status for progression within this field

 

The Academy trust can confirm that no school employees have a gross annual salary of over £100,000.
