What do Academy Ambassadors do?
The Academy Ambassador Group remit has four key elements:
Celebration: to help to make sure that celebration of staff, pupils and parents remains a priority for the academy, and to find the best way to do this.
Communication: to work with staff, pupils and parents to make sure that the academy effectively communicates to all stakeholders, so that everyone feels part of academy life and has the opportunity to access information and events.
Concerns or complaints: to act as an independent local point of contact for staff, pupils and parents to express their concerns. Academy Ambassadors will signpost people to the right channels for dealing with their issues and will ensure that any concerns or complaints are fed back to the Academy Ambassador Group. Where any trends emerge, the Academy Ambassadors work with the Principal and other ambassadors to help find solutions. Academy Ambassadors will also always form the majority of members on any appeals panels.
Community: making sure that the pupils maximise on local opportunities by finding ways to keep the academy at the heart of the community and acting as a key link between the two. To really help the academy to explore what it can do to make the school a hub of community services.
