Governance

The school

Parklands Educate Together has an Academy Development Committee (ADC) comprised of parents, staff and community representatives offering their skills to help develop and shape the school for the community. 

The ADC works alongside the Trust and the Head to ensure that the school delivers a high standard of education and meets all of its statutory responsibilities.

Elections will happen annually until the school reaches its seventh year, after which elections are done on a rolling basis every two or three years. At this stage the Board may decide to delegate some responsibility to the Committee, as a sub-committee of the Trust Board. 

Our Shadow Council Members are: 

Nicola Miller (Chair-community representative) Nikki Hamilton (community representative) Peter Lacey (community representative) Nicole Ackland (teacher representative) Steve Davis (Headteacher) Katie Green (support staff representative) Trish Phillips (parent representative)
