Governance – Academy Advisory Committee Providing support and challenge

We strive to ensure that the academy serves its community by providing education of the highest quality in a supportive atmosphere based on the academy vision.

We meet regularly through the school year to support the academy in continuing to raise standards of achievement for all our pupils. Working together with the academy, we set and monitor development priorities and we act as critical friends to the principal and other staff.

Oak Academy is currently under the Ambitions Academies Trust APSC ( Academy Priority Support Committee) structure whilst the academy strives to maintain rapid improvement in all areas.  Membership of this committee comprises of the Executive Team.

When the school is secure in its outcomes the governance model will transition to an Academy Advisory Committee (AAC). At this stage the Executive Team step back whilst continuing to provide internal support and challenge. Recruitment of additional volunteer Committee Members as required is undertaken prior to this transition to ensure capacity for local governance is in place.

The Committee has a Link Trustee allocated to them ensuring communication and accountability is fed back to the Trustees directly as set out in the AAT Scheme of Delegation.

Further information regarding the Scheme of Delegation, Trust Strategic Plan and Governance Model can be found on the Ambitions Academies Trust website or by clicking here.

The current committee membership is set out below:

Chair and Committee Member Paul Holman
Committee Member Fay MacRitchie
Committee Member Jon Webb
Committee Member Nicki Morton
Link Trustee Caroline Sard

All members of the committee are contactable through the academy office.
