Outcomes Focused, Child Centred
Northern Education Trust

Executive Team

The Trust is led by Rob Tarn (CEO), Jane Wilson (Deputy CEO) and an Executive Group comprising of a number of Directors and Executive Principals. They meet regularly and co-ordinate the policies and activities of the Trust in conjunction with the Trustees, Principals and Chairs of Governing Bodies at each individual academy.

Executive Board

The Chief Executive is supported by an Executive Board comprising senior officers from across the Trust. Its purpose is to manage generally the business of the Trust within agreed financial limits set by the Trust Board from time to time. Subject to these financial limits, the Executive Board has primary authority for the day to day management of the Trust’s operations save for those matters which are reserved to the Trust Board or its committees.

The Executive Board is the overall decision-making body for performance and delivery, under delegated authority from the Board.
