Our Ambassadorial Advisory Group is made up of people who share a great passion for our academy.

Led by a chairperson, AAGs meet once per term, and will have at least two parent ambassadors elected to the group. They work closely with headteachers, regional and national staff as well as our trustees, and focus on the four Cs of Communication, Celebration, Complaints and Community.

AAG Charter

Please note that the board of trustees is the governing body for E-ACT and all E-ACT academies. The AAG is an advisory body only.

Attendance of trustees at meetings is published on the trust website within E-ACT’s annual report which also contains information on the structure and responsibilities of the board and its committees.

Other important documents that can be found on the trust website include:

  • Trustees’ business and financial interests
  • Articles of Association
  • Master Funding Agreement and Supplemental Agreements
  • E-ACT’s Scheme of Delegation which shows all delegated authorities from the board of trustees
  • E-ACT’s detailed governance overview, showing how we continue to meet all our statutory and regulatory requirements under our regionalised governance model

All of these documents can be found by clicking here.

Our AAG members are:

  • Becky Harriman – Headteacher
  • Clair Hamilton – Parent Ambassador
  • Stephanie Pope – Parent Ambassador & Chair

Pen Portraits

Clair Hamilton

I have two children at Badock’s Wood. I joined the AAG because I want every child to enjoy school and get the most out of it. I moved to Bristol to go the The Bristol Old Vic Theatre School and since then I have worked in theatres, schools, and for a charity that supports parenting courses. I help to lead The Community Church that meets at the Greenway Centre. I have been lucky enough to be able to do jobs that I love and I think that is because I had a great education when I was a child. I want every child to be able to dream big dreams and work hard to reach them.

Hello ! I am a parent of 4 children and 3 of them currently attend Badock’s Wood. My eldest is going to secondary school in September 2019 after joining Badock’s as a reception starter. I joined the AAG as I enjoy supporting the school, pupils and staff. Not just to make it an amazing safe space for my own children but their peers also.

Ambassadors can be contacted via the academy office or by emailing:
