Quality of Education Board Handbook


Each of our schools has a Quality of Education Board. Members of this board are appointed by the CEO and the Executive Team, and all appointments are ratified by trustees. The QEBs support our Headteachers and report to trustees.

The QEBs have a specific focus on the quality of education at each school. They will support the Headteacher and leadership team to devise and monitor the priorities for school improvement as laid down in the School Development Plan.

Across the school year the QEB meet five times and focus on the following areas:

  • Quality of the curriculum, teaching and pupil outcomes
  • Quality of pupil behaviour and personal development
  • Attendance
  • Quality of leadership and management
  • Safeguarding
  • Pupil premium strategy
  • Stakeholder engagement

The QEB report to trustees on these areas using the QEB Report to trustees following each of their meetings. The meeting cycle defines when particular items need to be scrutinised and is one of the key components in ensuring that QEBs carry out their role effectively. The QEB meetings and report are used to identify areas for QEB members to monitor in their school visits through the QEB Monitoring Protocol.
