Academy Champions (AC’s) are governance volunteers who form the Academy Monitoring Committee (AMC) under the guidance of the AMC Chairs. They work collaboratively with the Central Team to provide an overview of school performance to the Trustees who have responsibility for all academies within the Trust. The Academy Champions are members of the local community, parents and in Church School members of the clergy.
All Academy Champions have a role in monitoring and reporting on key aspects of the academy’s work as developed alongside the Central Team. In addition to this, they are encouraged to complete informal visits to their academy, support and promote the academy's activity in the community and make suggestions to further improve the Governance model.
