The RUGS is the name for our MAT Student Council. It stands for the Really Useful Generation Students’ Group. Its membership is (usually) a boy and a girl from each of the academies within the Trust elected by their own student communities. Their term of office is a maximum of 2 years. Members of the RUGS are also ambassadors for the Trust. The Group meets at least once every term and is chaired by the CEO.
The current membership is as follows:
- Ash Green – Samanvi Machineni (Year 5) and Isla de Pee (Year 5)
- Ellison – Emily Conroy (Year 6) and Ben Lee (Year 6)
- Gladstone – Ruby Mills (Year 5) and Jacob Kelsall (Year 5)
- Goldenhill – Paige Boote (Year 6) and Maison Cookson (Year 6)
- Summerbank – Khadija Hussain (Year 6) and Abu-Bakr Mehmood (Year 6)
Their mission statement is – “To inspire development strategies for learning for every child in the MAT!”
