The Academy Council operates as a sub-committee of The Acorn Education Trust Board of Trustees.
As a member of the Academy Council their role is to both support and challenge the school by asking questions to help investigate how the school is progressing.
Much like a Governing Body, the Academy Council’s role is to:
- Ensure your children learn in a safe environment and to the maximum of their ability
- Ensure clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
- Hold the Head to account for the educational performance of the Academy and its students
- Promote the safety and wellbeing of students including behaviour, discipline and attendance.
I am a foundation governor at the school and have 2 young children; one in Year 2 and another in Year 4. I have worked in the Pharmaceutical Industry for 12 years, and am currently taking a career break to raise our children.
I am a foundation governor and Rector of Trowbridge St James' and Keevil. My earlier career was in science and technology, and in business.
I’m an associate governor, co-opted to the Governing Body. I’m an employment lawyer and run a specialist law firm which has a number of clients in the education sector. I was also a foundation governor at another primary school for several years.
