Meet the Interim Executive Board (IEB)

What is an IEB?

Interim Executive Boards
An Interim Executive Board (IEB) is a small body appointed on a short-term basis by a local authority to turn around a school that is judged to be in need of improvement. An IEB replaces the governing body of a school that has either been placed in special measures by Ofsted.
The IEB's main functions are to secure a sound basis for future improvement in the school and promote high standards of educational achievement.
The transition from an IEB to a post-IEB governance structure begins with the appointment of a shadow governing body by the local authority which works alongside the IEB for at least six months.
