Our ambassadors

Our ambassador team is made up of parents and community members who share a passion for supporting and working with the academy.

This an exciting and unique role at the heart of our academy. Ambassadors collaborate, network and forge links with the local community to inspire pupils to raise their aspirations.

Working closely with the headteacher and supported by the national governance team and trustees, ambassadors also support our community hub to ensure children are getting the support they need at home.

Led by a chairperson, ambassador teams meet a minimum of once per term and have at least two parent ambassadors. They play a vital role in sharing parents’, students’ and the community’s voice with trustees.

On occasion, ambassadors may also be invited to sit on complaint hearings and hearings for permanent exclusions.

If you would like to become an ambassador please contact Jennifer Clegg, the headteacher on heartlands.enquiry@hea.e-act.org.uk. You can also contact the national governance team for further information at governance@E-ACT.org.uk.
