Core Functions of The Regional Governing Board (School Improvement Committee)
All Governors need to:
- deliver the character, mission and ethos of the Trust and the academies;
- hold the leadership to account for its educational performance;

Working together we can make a huge difference
All our Governors are expected to abide by The Principles of Public Life:

Governing Body Profiles
I was a parent governor at Green Meadow Primary School and have subsequently joined the MAT’s school improvement committee and Excelsior’s trust board. Both of my children have attended Green Meadow Primary school and I enjoy supporting the schools within the MAT. I work as a lawyer in Birmingham and spend my free time with my family which usually involves walks and games at the local parks or cinema with friends.
I'm a parent to two children both at Colmers Farm Primary School. I'm passionate about the education that both they and the other pupils receive and was delighted to be accepted as parent-governor. I'm a senior leader within Network Rail managing the day to day operation of train services on the West Coast Main line. I will share the skills I use every day to support and offer guidance to the head teacher by challenging the school’s performance whilst championing the on-going improvements within the school.
I became a staff governor in September 2019. I am a school administrator working at Colmers Farm school since 1995. Both of my sons went to this school so I have a long history with the school and surrounding area.
My previous jobs were in Administration working at Nacro helping prisoners to rehabilitate into the community.
I am a Nan to two amazing grandchildren who keep me very busy. I became a staff governor because I feel that the school has improved immensely and is going from strength to strength. I wanted to be part of the schools ongoing growth.
I was very pleased to be made parent governor at Green Meadow School in late 2017, and I have felt privileged to work with our talented teachers, leaders and the Excelsior Trust as we strive to bring the best possible learning environment for our children.
We have seen a lot of change recently, and with my own children at the school I am very keen to meet the requirements of a governor in monitoring, questioning, and working carefully on our ambitious plans to raise the standards of education at Green Meadow.
My occupation as Operations Manager for a Risk Management Business has also come in useful, as I can use my skills as a chartered health and safety consultant to ensure our children can stay safe and healthy while at school.
I’m looking forward to the future with a mixture of optimism and excitement. With our plans now underway and with clear sight of our objectives, I believe that it will not be long before Green Meadow School will be flourishing in ways its name suggests it should.
My name is Hayley Wadley and I have been a parent governor at Turves Green Primary School since 2018 and since 2019 I have been the Chair of Governors for the Excelsior MAT.
In 2004 I became a secondary school teacher specialising in Business Studies and Accounts. I am passionate about education and have seen first-hand how an excellent education can transform a child’s life. It is a pleasure to be part of the Governing body for Excelsior MAT and I know that we can make a positive impact on every learner’s future across all the schools.
