Greg Sadler - Trust Appointed AC Member & 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.

Michelle Webb - Trust Appointed AC Member

I have a background in secondary education as a subject teacher and pastoral leader and have been a teaching union representative for many years. Having retired from teaching I now work in the construction industry. 

The bulk of my career has been spent with older students but I understand the importance of high quality teaching and learning for younger students in primary education. I am passionate about young people receiving a broad and balanced curriculum and have a role as link governor for Religious Education and Relationship Health and Sex Education. 

I and am in regular contact with the Head teacher and staff at Norwich Road Academy and see my role as a link for both the teachers and the parents to ensure the students become confident and successful learners.

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.
