Dear M Newman,

Perfect.

I gather you donot have information on your governing body or Positive Action.

Yours sincerely,

karamat iqbal

M Newman, Arena Academy, Birmingham

HI

That's good, thank you.

I am not aware of any positive action, and I'm afraid do not have the information regarding governance at the moment, collecting this in our current circumstances will be very tricky.

Kind Regards,

Martin

Dear Dr Iqbal,

My apologies for the delay in response, it's been incredibly challenging
over the last few months in school...and now being shut down again, we are
adapting to change at very short notice.

I thought I would just check in to confirm if you require the information?

Kind Regards,

Martin
