Meet the Governing Body

The Academy Governing Body (AGB) of Bredbury Green Primary School has three core functions and is responsible for:

  • ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;
  • to support and challenge the systems within the school to ensure the performance of the school remains at its highest level;
  • overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.

 To ensure effective governance, the following have been put in place:

  • the appointment of individuals with the necessary skills, and diversity of perspectives;
  • an effective chair and an explicit governor code of conduct;
  • clear governance structures with tightly defined remits;
  • clear separation, but a positive relationship, between the role of the board and its school leaders;
  • the support and advice of an independent and professional clerk;
  • robust processes for finance, business planning and compliance;
  • processes for regular self-evaluation, review and improvement.


Our AGB is chaired by Wendy Holden, who can be contacted by email at:
