Parent Academy Council Governor

This is the vision of the Acorn Education Trust that was formed in August 2014 to create a local solution to a national strategy. Through close collaboration and a shared vision we believe each school will achieve great things while retaining their individual identity.

The Governors within the Acorn Trust join us through a variety of routes and with a range of different backgrounds, skills and experiences. They are all volunteers who work together for the benefit of the individual schools and Trust as a whole. Governors are the most important volunteer workforce in education and we value the link that governors provide between the academy councils and the communities they serve.

Avon Valley Academy is currently looking for a parent Academy Council Governor. An Academy Council is what a traditional School Governing Body has evolved in to in our Academy Trust. While the role is slightly different and we would encourage anyone interested to get in touch and discuss what the role entails, we would also be delighted to hear from anyone who has:

  • An interest in supporting our pupils from our most vulnerable to our most able
  • An open and enquiring mind – with a good sense of humour!
  • The confidence to ask questions
  • The ability to work well with others
  • Time to spare (there will be 4 meetings during the working day, either in person or via Teams, school visits, training and Chairs meetings)
  • And most importantly enthusiasm!

What we can offer is:

  • A real sense of achievement
  • The pleasure of helping our pupils reach their potential
  • The opportunity to work with our team of governors and staff in improving our school
  • Training to develop an understanding of the role
  • An insight into the education system including the structure of a Multi Academy Trust.

If you have the skills, time, commitment and discretion to help Avon Valley Academy move forward please contact Zoe Stockley at zas@acorneducationtrust.com.

Closing date: Monday 11th July 2022

 


Avon Valley Academy and the Acorn Education Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. All applicants will be subject to a full Disclosure and Barring Service check before appointment is confirmed. We are an equal opportunities employer.
