We currently have a vacancy for a Clerk to the Governing Body.


The role involves preparing the agendas and papers for all Governor meetings, arranging the meetings themselves and taking accurate minutes for distribution.

The core responsibility will consist of facilitating meetings of:

Full Governing Body; Resources Committee; Ethos, Curriculum and Standards Committee and Strategy Group meetings.

The Clerk will also be required to attend any Extraordinary Meetings that are called.

The hours required will be 75 per year and these will be subject to review. Additional hours will be agreed in advance.

The nature of the work requires a high level of accuracy, confidentiality and organisation, with the ability to complete work to very tight deadlines. Experience of this role would be helpful, but is not essential, and training will be provided. Meetings usually take place in the late afternoon/early evening.

An application form and job description are available below. Completed application forms should be returned to the school office.

This school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people, and expects all staff, and volunteers, to share the same commitment. This position is subject to an enhanced DBS check.
