Our E-ACT Ambassadors
Our ambassador team is made up of parents and community members who share a passion for supporting and working with the academy.
This is an exciting and unique role at the heart of our academy. Ambassadors collaborate, network and forge links with the local community to inspire pupils to raise their inspirations.
Working closely with the headteacher and supported by the national governance team and trustees, ambassadors also support our community hub to ensure children are getting the support we need at home.
Led by a chairperson, ambassador teams meet a minimum of once per term and have at least two parent ambassadors. They play a vital role in sharing parents’, pupils’ and the community’s voice with trustees.
On occasion, ambassadors may also be invited to sit on complaint hearings and hearings for permanent exclusions.
If you would like to become an ambassador please contact the headteacher or the chair of ambassadors on Charlee Maybury/ firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also contact the national governance team for further information at governance@E-ACT.org.uk.
Ambassadors play crucial role in helping our leadership teams to deliver our organisational strategy. Opening minds, opening doors. On occasions, ambassadors may be invited to sit on complaint hearings and hearings for permanent exclusions.

Our first strategic priority is to strengthen our community links. We plan to do this by connecting with two of our local care homes. Due to Covid this will mainly be in a virtual format for the time being, we hope by doing this it will link with one of our AIP priorities which is to increase ownership of school improvement by stakeholders holders at all levels.
Our second priority is to strengthen our pupil’s creativity, we hope to do this with agreement from the care homes by asking the children to send regular cards/pictures/stories to the care home residents.
Our third priority will be the July focus which will be a celebration between the Academy and the local community care home residents.
