Interim Executive Board (IEB) – Seaton Burn College


Updated November 2017             

An Interim Executive Board (IEB) has been put in place at Seaton Burn College.   An IEB is a specially constituted governing body appointed for a temporary period in schools in particular circumstances and has the specific task of ensuring school improvement.   An IEB takes over all responsibilities and duties from the previous school governing body.  Its main role is to secure a sound basis for future improvement and promote high standards.  The expectation is that this is done quickly because the pace of change is crucial to the success of Seaton Burn College. 

The IEB is a small, focused group whose members are chosen on the basis of skills and experience that is needed to ensure school improvement according to the needs of the school in question.  The IEB was established in October 2016.  In all cases the IEB members were appointed by the Regional School Commissioner.

Although it is a small dynamic group, the IEB forms committees where it is necessary to do so to consider specific matters.  The committees that have met since the inception of the IEB are those relating to Pupil Discipline (i.e. to consider cases of pupil exclusion) and Personnel (i.e. dealing with specific staffing matters).  Not all IEB members take part in the work of all of these committees.

There are currently four members serving on the IEB, as follows: -
