Our Academy Committee

Academy Committee

The Academy Committee reports directly to the Board of Directors about the educational and organisational performance of the academy it serves so that we build a firm foundation for every child's future, giving them the self-belief, resilience and wisdom to achieve their potential, in all aspects of their lives. 

The people who volunteer as the Academy Representatives that form the Academy committee include parent, staff, Head of School and community or Diocesan representation. This enables the Academy Committee to inform the Board of Directors about matters directly related to the staff, parents, pupils and wider stakeholders of the individual academy.  You can read more about them in the information below.

 I joined the Board of Directors in September 2018. I have been teaching for six years, in both KS1 and KS2. I started teaching in Year 1 at Acton in January 2017 and I am currently the Year 2 teacher. As part of my role at Acton I am also the subject leader for RE and have set up a Collective Worship Council which consists of two children from each year group. I have also recently taken on the role of Emotional Well-Being lead. Both RE and emotional well-being are two areas of education which I am passionate about. I am looking forward to developing these areas across the MAT.

I joined the Governing Body, now the Board of Directors, in May 2016 as a Foundation Governor for Acton Church. I was honoured to be asked to become a member having being involved in education all my career. Before my recent retirement I was a primary school teacher in Crewe and I have also taught in Stoke-on-Trent, Newcastle-under-Lyme and Germany. My responsibilities, as a director, are for R.E. and Collective Worship and in this role I thoroughly enjoyed watching Acton School's Harvest Festival Service. I am looking forward to being part of the development of the Real Life Learning Multi Academy Trust.

Being involved in the governance of a primary academy trust is a rewarding experience where we look to make a difference for all our children, staff and stakeholders.
