Clerking & Governance service 

Initial meeting with school leadership
or governing board

The purpose of this initial video meeting is to explain the service, familiarise ourselves with your processes and gather the information and documents required to provide clerking & governance services to your school.

Advisory service on matters related
to school governance

This advice can be sought anytime during working hours and is suitable for matters that may arise pre or post governor meetings. We endeavour to reply to all questions within two working days.

Updates on legal/regulatory
or Ofsted changes 

Governors will receive regular email updates on major legal/regulatory or Ofsted changes that are forthcoming or are about to come into effect with a view to enabling the governing body to keep abreast of their responsibilities. We will also share useful tips to streamline school governance.

Record keeping service 

This includes keeping records of governing body constitution, appointments, terms of office, committee memberships, specialist roles and pecuniary interests as well as agendas, minutes, policy schedules, DBS records and other governance related documentation.

Coordinating, drafting and
circulating agenda

Chairs work together with the clerk to suggest items for inclusion in the agenda which will be circulated in good
time for each meeting together with appropriate meeting related papers.

Attendance at governing body and committee meetings (as requested) 

The assigned clerk will ‘attend’ your governors’ or committee meetings virtually as required on mutually agreed convenient dates. They will be available to advise on procedural matters relevant to the meeting.

Drafting and circulating minutes

Approximately 10 working days following a meeting, a draft set of minutes will be sent to the Chair of the meeting for approval and a copy saved for future reference.

Accredited eLearning for all governors

All governors of the school will have free, unlimited access
to our clerking & governance eLearning library. This currently has several CPD accredited courses and is continuously
being updated in line with available resources and governor demand.
