Interim Action Board (IAB)

The John Warner School is on a continuous improvement path and to support this, The Hoddesdon School Trust Board has decided that the school would be better supported by an Interim Action Board (IAB), instead of a Local Governing Body.

The Interim Action Board is a group of education professionals, led by Louise Soden (retired Ofsted HMI) who will be in place for approximately one year. Once the IAB has completed its work and the school is significantly improved, a local governing body will be reinstated with fresh elections for parent and staff governors.
