Skegby Junior Academy

Advisory Council

Advertisement – AAC members SJA

Each Academy within the Greenwood Academies Trust has its own Advisory Council (AAC) that works closely with each Principal.

The Academy Advisory Council (AAC) is a small group and has staff, parental and community representation. It is not, however, the same as a traditional governing body as it has no legal responsibilities. These responsibilities are held by the GAT Trust Board.

Each AAC meets formally at least once a term and AAC members are encouraged to play an active part in the day to day life of the Academy.

The AAC has three key roles in terms of the development and success of the Skegby Junior Academy:

  1. To advise and act as a critical friend to the Principal or of the Academy and to advise the Board of Directors of the Greenwood Academies Trust about local issues they need to consider that affect the Academy.
  2. To represent the interests of the Academy community in the running of the Academy and to represent the Academy in its community.
  3. To provide support to the Principal in undertaking appropriate day to day procedures that are essential to the life of the Academy, such as disciplinary and complaint procedures.
