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.

AAG Charter

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.
