Basic service: Provides a clerk who will attend three full governing body meetings a year.

Full service: Attend all governing body meetings throughout the year

Whether you need the basic or full service, our clerks are trained to assist governing bodies.

Our clerks will provide procedural advice on governance matters as appropriate.

Prepare draft agendas for approval by the Chair.

Distribute all paperwork within specified timescale.

Issue agendas and reports to the governors, the local authority and to the school improvement partners.

Take minutes of the meetings and provide a draft copy of the minutes for approval as appropriate and circulate the approved minutes to the governing body.

Assist with any necessary action in collaboration with the chair, as appropriate, on the appointment and or removal of governors.
