Academy Council

Academy Council (AC) work closely with the Headteacher of the individual academies to support the development and improvement of teaching, learning and standards within them. 

They are the voice of the school and the community, communicating with the Board and the Central Committees, ensuring there are always opportunities to engage, to listen and to and communicate key messages.

The role of an Academy Councillor is voluntary, however, in order for the Academy Council to function efficiently and effectively, there are allocated responsibilities for AC in order to achieve this.  Support and guidance is given in the form of induction and on-going training. 

The primary responsibility of the AC is to support the monitoring and evaluation of the quality and impact of leadership in any given academy. The AC also contributes to monitoring the extent of community involvement by the academy and considers how the academy ‘reaches out’ to its local community. The AC also has a vital responsibility in ensuring the Christian Distinctiveness of St, Michael’s.
