SNMAT Letter To Parents - IEB

The following update, written by the CEO of SNMAT, has been sent out to our families on Class Dojo today. It can also be found in the 'Letters' section of the website:


Dear Parents and Carers,


I am writing to inform you of a change in governance at Haggonfields Primary School. You will be aware that the school joined the Diocese of Southwell and Nottingham Multi Academy Trust (SNMAT) earlier this year. We are very keen to improve the quality of education at Haggonfields and are working closely with the school’s leaders. To accelerate this improvement, SNMAT have put an Interim Executive Board (IEB) in place. This is a small group which will take on the duties of the governing body in the short term, in order to concentrate on getting the important things right. When things have improved we will ensure that a full governing body is in place. Information about the IEB will be posted on the school’s website, along with how parents can make contact should you need to do so.


The IEB has identified the four key priorities as:


  • Improving the quality of teaching and learning.
  • Implementing a curriculum that inspires and excites all learners.
  • Ensuring that pupils with special educational needs receive the support that they need.
  • Improving leadership at all levels, including governance.


SNMAT will be in touch in the future to keep you updated as to the progress that we are making.  


Yours faithfully,


Chris Moodie

Chief Executive Officer

Diocese of Southwell & Nottingham Multi Academy Trust (SNMAT)
