Our E-ACT Ambassadors

Our E-ACT Ambassador team is made up of parents and community members who share a great passion for supporting and working with our academy.

Led by a chairperson, each team of E-ACT Ambassadors meets a minimum of once per term and has at least two parent ambassadors. The ambassadors work closely with headteachers and are supported by our regional directors and trustees. The role of the ambassadors is to collaborate and communicate with the local community and to celebrate our students’ achievements and the work of our academies.

Ambassadors play a crucial role in helping our leadership teams to deliver our organisational strategy, Opening Minds, Opening Doors. On occasion, ambassadors may also be invited to sit on complaint hearings and hearings for permanent exclusions.

The three strategic priorities that our academy ambassadors are working on this year are:

• Improving community links.

• Improving academy perception.

• Improving literacy.

My name is Beverley O’Neill and I have been the Head Teacher at Blackshaw Primary and Nursery School since January 2016. Prior to this I was the Deputy Head Teacher at Royton Hall Primary School for 5 years. I have always taught in the Primary sector in Oldham and very believe that Oldham children deserve the very best education we can offer them. As an Oldham head teacher I also have a number of collaborative roles such as this one and see the need to work with our local partners to ensure that we are challenging and supporting each other to achieve this aspiration. I have two teenage children who have been served very well by Oldham schools. whilst they were primary school age I was able to see how great education helped them to grow and learn. As they have moved through secondary school I can now appreciate how the wider aspects of their schooling that goes far beyond the national curriculum offer has guided them to become well rounded and successful people ready to achieve whatever they set their minds to. I would like to use these experiences as an AAG member to help this school provide the best education and preparation for life it possibly can.

I currently have one child at the school who is in year 8 and In September 2019 my second child will be attending the school. I strongly believe that with the help and cooperation of the parents we can help to make E-ACT Royton and Crompton a great place to learn and inspire the pupils of today. The school can only do so much that’s why I believe pupil and parental input is invaluable for the school to achieve its aims and goals.
