The E-ACT Ambassador Group is made up of parents and community members who share a great passion fo rsupporting and working with our academy.
Led by a chairperson, each team of E-ACT Ambassadors meets a minimumum of once per term, and has at least two parent ambassadors. The ambassadors work closely with headteachers and are supported by our regional directors and trustees. The role of the ambassadors is to collaborate and communicate with the local community and to celebrate our students’s achievements and the work of our academies.
Ambassadors play a crucial role in helping our leadership teams to deliver our organisational strategy, Opening Minds, Opening Doors. On occasion, ambassadors may also be invited to sit on complaint hearings and hearings for permanent exclusions.
The three strategic priorities that our academy ambassadors are working on this year are:
- A gardening community project to work with local homes and the local community environment
- Birmingham Wildlife Trust for student personal development
- Joint charity work between students and ambassadors
For more information please see the E-ACT Ambassador Charter below.

My name is Maria Davies and I have been part of the Ambassador’s group since January 2019. I have lived in the local area for the past 12 years, my child currently attends Shenley Academy and is due to start in Year 10 in September 2020. I work within a primary school in Quinton as their Finance Officer and prior to this I worked briefly in a secondary setting which has given me an understanding of how schools work behind the scenes.
My name is Andy and I joined the Shenley Ambassadors’ group in April 2020.
