Our E-ACT Ambassadors

Our E-ACT Ambassadors are made up of people who share a great passion for our academy.

Led by a chairperson, E-ACT Ambassadors meet once per term, and will have at least two parent ambassadors elected to the group. They work closely with headteachers, regional and national staff as well as our trustees, and focus on the four Cs of Communication, Celebration, Complaints and Community.

Please note that the board of trustees is the governing body for E-ACT and all E-ACT academies. E-ACT Ambassadors are an advisory body only.

Attendance of trustees at meetings is published on the trust website within E-ACT’s annual report which also contains information on the structure and responsibilities of the board and its committees.

Other important documents that can be found on the trust website include:

  • Trustees’ business and financial interests
  • Articles of Association
  • Master Funding Agreement and Supplemental Agreements
  • E-ACT’s Scheme of Delegation which shows all delegated authorities from the board of trustees
  • E-ACT’s detailed governance overview, showing how we continue to meet all our statutory and regulatory requirements under our regionalised governance model

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.
