Governance

The school

Parklands Educate Together has a Shadow Academy development Council comprised of local residents offering their skills to help develop and shape the school for the community. 

The Shadow Council work alongside the Trust and the Head to ensure that the community has a voice during the pre-opening stage of the schools development. Once the school has been open for one term elections will be held to select additional council members: Two parents, one eating staff member and one non-teaching staff member. Shadow council members may decide to remain or set down. 

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 Council, as a sub-committee of the Trust Board. 

Our Shadow Council Members are: 

Nicola Miller

Nikki Hamilton

Peter Lacey

Thomas Cole
