Our Academy

Meet the Academy Advisory Board

The Nottingham Emmanuel School is a member school of the Archway Learning Trust. The membership of The Nottingham Emmanuel School Academy Advisory Board (AAB – previously known as the Local Governing Body, or LGB) is drawn from a number of nominating bodies and appointed by the Trust Board. However, AAB members continue to be nominated on the basis of the skills and experiences which equip them to fulfill the role. They undertake an annual review of their effectiveness and undertake training to continually improve their skills and knowledge.

The Nottingham Emmanuel School AAB are committed to the development of the whole school community and give freely of their time and expertise to help the school live out its vision.

They work closely with senior leaders to ensure all stakeholders are fully engaged in living out our mission: ‘That children would encounter great learning, develop great character and become great servant-leaders.

The members of the AAB are shown below, along with information about each member’s business/pecuniary interests, governance roles in other schools, and attendance record.

Details of the structure and responsibilities of the AAB, its committees and its powers can be found below in the Scheme of Delegation and Terms of Reference.

Meet the Academy Advisory Board

Nazia Asghar – Parent member

I have 3 children at the school. I graduated from Nottingham Trent University in Environmental Health but due to taking time out to be a full-time mother I didn’t succeed in pursuing a career within the profession. I then went on to study teacher training diploma in Lifelong learning and worked in mental health and care alongside. I currently work with young people in an alternative provision who are unable to access mainstream education whether it’s due to special needs, behavioural issues or medical reasons. My job is challenging but rewarding at the same time, especially when learners have made an achievement or found a sense direction through their personal challenges. I believe in having a good education and supporting young people in achieving their goals and making the most of opportunities. I chose to apply for the parent governor role so I can gain a better understanding of the education system and to learn more about the school.

Dizzy Prentice, AAB Vice chair – Nominated by the Diocesan Board of Education

Dizzy Prentice is a member of St Giles’ Church, West Bridgford and she has a lifelong interest in education. After a number of years as a Business Studies and IT lecturer in Further Education, she worked in educational management, first in an FE College and then, in a large engineering school at the University of Nottingham. The post involved the management of a large number of professional staff. It was here that she implemented significant changes in finance and business processes and was also responsible for identifying and mitigating areas of risk to the organisation. These skills transfer to her interests in governance.
