The AST Board of Directors has appointed School Stakeholder Committees for each Avanti school. SSCs provide perspectives from various stakeholder groups (staff, parents and the wider community) on the day to day functioning of the school in order to support the school’s work.
The SSC members work together to support the Principal and senior leadership team in achieving what is best for the pupils. Each member brings with them a depth of knowledge from their own professional and personal lives which is contributory to the growth of the school.
The purpose of this committee is to:
- Provide perspectives from various stakeholder groups (staff, parents and the wider community) on the day to day functioning of the school;
- Contribute to the running of the school by participating in disciplinary, exclusions, complaints, admissions and appointments panels and other such forums that require representation of persons not employed at the school;
- Be ambassadors of the school to promote partnerships with wider local communities to enrich the school’s offer to pupils, for example volunteering and mentoring programmes and employer engagement;
- Support the regular fundraising efforts of the school, including the voluntary-contributions scheme.
- Support the school in other ways as requested by the Principal on an ad-hoc basis.
The School Stakeholder Committee (SSC) is made-up of 9 members, comprising 4 Trust members, the school Headteacher, 2 elected Parent members, 1 elected staff member and 1 elected support staff member. Parents are invited to contact Shayne Jayaprakesh (Parent SSC member) by contacting the school in writing if you would like to speak to him.
The Chair of the Schools Stakeholder Committee is Mrs Darpna Tank who can be contacted at Avanti Court Primary School, Carlton Drive, IG6 1LZ.
