Academy Advisory Council
The Academy Advisory Council (AAC) is a small group and has staff, parent 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 Trust Board and membership of the Advisory Council is within their remit.
The joint Skegness Junior Academy and Infant Academy Advisory Council will be expected to meet formally at least termly 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 Academy:
- To advise and act as a critical friend to the Principal 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.
- To represent the interests of the Academy community in the running of the Academy and to represent the Academy in its community.
- 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.
The Skegness Junior and Infant Academies have an established joint Advisory Council and will be moving to new Terms of Reference during this academic year. The Council currently includes the following members from a range of backgrounds:
