Our Ambassadorial Advisory Group
Our Ambassadorial Advisory Group is made up of people who share a great passion for our academy.
Led by a chairperson, AAGs meet once per term, and will have at least two parent ambassadors elected to the group. They work closely with headteachers, regional and national staff as well as our trustees, and focus on the four Cs of Communication, Celebration, Complaints and Community.
Please note that the board of trustees is the governing body for E-ACT and all E-ACT academies. The AAG is an advisory body only.
Attendance of trustees at meetings is published on the trust website within E-ACT’s annual report which also contains information on the structure and responsibilities of the board and its committees.
Other important documents that can be found on the trust website include:
- Trustees’ business and financial interests
- Articles of Association
- Master Funding Agreement and Supplemental Agreements
- E-ACT’s Scheme of Delegation which shows all delegated authorities from the board of trustees
- E-ACT’s detailed governance overview, showing how we continue to meet all our statutory and regulatory requirements under our regionalised governance model
All of these documents can be found by clicking here.
I have had a long association with Shenley Academy and its predecessor school. I started as a parent governor in 2005 and was appointed chair of the governing body in 2013. In my working life I am a Network Architect for BT, and married with two sons. Both of my sons James and Christopher attended Shenley Academy, they have now moved on, my eldest James is studying Computer Games Programming at Staffordshire University. I was pleased this year to be offered the opportunity to join and chair the new Ambassadorial Advisory Group at Shenley Academy. Over the years I have had a lot to learn about the education system but I have always been keen to learn and support the school in whatever way that I can.
