Clerk to Governors

We are seeking an efficient and proactive Clerk to the Governing Body: this is a key role providing administrative and procedural advice to the Governing Board, ensuring its effectiveness, reporting to the Chair of Governors.

This post is part time, home-based working, term-time only and requires a degree of flexibility from the post-holder as the schedule of meetings and workloads around them can vary. Governing Body meetings usually take place in school, in the evenings, where the Clerk would attend to take minutes, convene the meetings and provide advice.

Key responsibilities:

  • Provide advice to the governing body on governance, constitutional and procedural matters.
  • Provide effective administrative support to the governing body and its committee, which involves preparing agendas in consultation with the Chair of Governors and Headteacher; taking and writing up the minutes and distributing documentation and other information to the Governing Board.
  • Ensure the governing body is properly constituted.
  • Manage information effectively in accordance with legal requirements, including becoming familiar with the DFE’s Governance Handbook and provide accurate advice to Governors, as necessary.

Visits to the school are warmly welcomed.
