Members of the Leycroft Local Academy Council (LAC)
Chair: Christopher Pullen
Initially completing 12 years’ service in the British Army, Chris has gone on to build a wide and varied business career. This has included being Chief Executive of some large organisations and Chair of others. Chris is very much looking forward to sharing his experience and supporting the great work that the school does
James Banting (Parent Representative)
James has worked at BT Openreach now for 10 years and held the position of Senior Delivery manager for the past 5 years. Within this role he deals with multiple stakeholders and manages large scale projects to ultimately provide people with broadband service when they move into newly built properties across the East of the country. James hopes he can bring his project related experience to his role as LAC member to support the school and its pupils be the best they can be.
James also has a child who attends Leycroft Academy, so he will approach his role on the LAC from a parent’s perspective and ensure all families are considered in the school’s policies and procedures moving forward.
