Our E-ACT Ambassadors
Our ambassador team is made up of parents and community members who share a passion for supporting and working with the academy. This an exciting and unique role at the heart of our academy. Ambassadors collaborate, network and forge links with the local community to inspire pupils to raise their aspirations. Working closely with the headteacher and supported by the national governance team and trustees, ambassadors also support our community hub to ensure children are getting the support they need at home. Led by a chairperson, ambassador teams meet a minimum of once per term and have at least two parent ambassadors. They play a vital role in sharing parents’, pupils’ and the community’s voice with trustees. On occasion, ambassadors may also be invited to sit on complaint hearings and hearings for permanent exclusions. If you would like to become an ambassador please contact the headteacher or the chair of ambassadors on Martin.Vose@E-ACT.org.uk. You can also contact the national governance team for further information at governance@E -ACT.org.uk.

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.
