Academy Committee Members

Greg Sadler - Community Governor & Chair

My career spans twenty-seven years within education, bridging both the primary and secondary age ranges.  I have a wealth of senior leadership experience across eight schools in a range of phases across Essex, Suffolk and Norfolk.  I was a Headteacher for 13 years,  and have experience of the strategic and operational running of multiple schools on multiple sites in different phases.  

I now work as the EMAT Regional Director across the Breckland Hub.  I have supported Norwich Road Academy over the past 3 years, and chair the Academy Council.

Sharon Scott - Clerk to the Governors

I joined EMAT in September 2015 and am Clerk to the Governors for six of the trust's academies.  After completion of a BSc Business and Management Studies degree I then followed a career in the foodservice and food industry, which took me to senior management level.  However, after having my son and becoming a farmer's wife, priorities changed!

A good education is one of the greatest gifts we can give our children, and I am proud to be a part of the team at Norwich Road Academy.
