Our Ambassadorial Advisory Group is made up of people who share a great passion for our academy.
Led by a chairperson, AAGs 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. The AAG is 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
All of these documents can be found by clicking here.

Ambassador Team Statement
Our aim as academy ambassadors is to make the lines of communication clear between parents and teachers. We want to ensure that we provide a safe environment where parents/ carers are able to raise questions or concerns that they may have and have them adequately addressed to the mutual satisfaction of all parties. We also recognise that our school sits within a community and would very much like to bring them together so that our school and our children have the support and nurturing, not only from parents, but the community also.
Before I had my own children, I studied in the education sector and became qualified in early years. Once I had my two children (one who is in reception and the other yet to start school) I did and do everything I can to make sure they get the education that they, and all children deserve. I am currently in the process of becoming a foster carer to a lovely 15-year-old. This has given me more insight into the help children can need and the difficulties parents face. When I decided to become a parent ambassador I felt this could be a great inclusive way to help parents, children and the school work and improve together. Whilst teaching me new skills in the process. I hope to see you around the school.
My name is Adeola Animashaun; a proud mum of two lovely children and an ever supporting husband. Innovative and resourceful, hardworking I love challenging and welcome new responsibilities. I can communicate effectively, inspire and engage with others to bring out the best in them. Being a school Ambassador is a great challenge for me to know more about the academy; I am a fast learner and a flexible person. I would love to be more involved in school education and I need your support to achieve my goal.
I became an Ambassador so that I am able to see both sides of the education system. I found that just being a parent at the school wasn’t enough and wanted more knowledge into how a school runs. I have since found there is a great deal of knowledge to obtain. As my children attend Greenfield, I now feel that i know where their education is going. As most know, I am a familiar face at the school along with my fellow ambassadors so I would very much like to be able to support other parents in accomplishing advice and information to support their families at our school. I am going to be there for a number of years to come so I would like to be an asset to parents and their families as well as our school.
I am a parent of two children at Greenfield. I accidentally discovered the school when I was looking for a suitable school within walking distance and after being shown around by Trina Wright (School Liaison) I was impressed enough to enrol my eldest. Since then, I have met a number of outstanding teachers and have had the privilege of helping out with a variety of classes as well as working with individual children to support better reading. Through my daily interactions with the school, as both parent and volunteer, I have recognised there are possible areas of improvement that could potentially enhance the school experiences. I am eager to hear more from parents and my fellow ambassadors about areas of concern and opportunities for future improvements so that we can work with the teachers and relevant bodies to address these.
I chose to become part of the team of school ambassadors for the reason that I have been a parent volunteer for over a year now. What began as a determination to assist my daughter’s learning and her needs while working with our great team of teachers has progressed into a passion to bring the teachers and parents closer together and bring our school into the community. Like my fellow ambassadors, I am able to see the possibilities for future improvements which could have a positive effect on our school and our children. Like the rest of the ambassadors I believe this can be a success knowing how passionate we all are about our children and their success.
I have been involved with Greenfield for 11 years when my first child started nursery. I have a good relationship with staff and students at Greenfield and I feel I know the school well. I feel that the school values are well matched to my own. I understand confidentiality and the academy policies and procedures. I follow the teacher planning and behaviour policy. I go on most school trips and I am DBS checked. I am currently doing my NVQ Level 3 Teaching Assistant qualification.
If you would like to become an Academy Ambassador, please contact Mr Tooth or speak to any of the Parent Ambassadors via the school office.
