Wisewood Core Improvement Committee



After the Trust conducted a Quality Assurance visit and in agreement with the Headteacher and the Chair of the LAC  the decision was made to suspend the local academy committee and implement a Core Improvement Committee. Tapton School Academy Trust has appointed the committee.


Purpose of the committee

The committee will support the school over the coming terms to ensure that the leadership team have the capacity to make decisions and support the continuing improvement of the school.  The committee is made up of members of the Trust with specific skills:



Liz Heaphy


Angela Lant 

Executive Headteacher

Caroline Bagley (Vice Chair)

Chair of the Trust

John Dean

Business Manager for the Trust

Jayne Crawshaw (Chair) 

Chair of Governors

Chris Stewart 

Head of Hallam Primary School


All members of this committee have voting rights.


Term of Office

The committee was formed in February 2017 and will continue to meet on a three weekly basis until at least the Autumn Term.  We should hope to reinstate a full Local Academy Committee by December 2017 with correct induction and training.
