We provide chairs, governors and clerks with a range of tools designed to promote effective governance.

Helpline advice for chairs, governors, heads and clerks

Telephone and email for 1:1 advice tailored to the challenges your school is facing.

We are happy to talk through any situations or concerns you may have and will act as a sounding board as often as you need us. Schools and clerks value having our experience on hand and will often contact us, and we will work with them as a team to unpick complicated matters.

We are up to date with the education landscape, nationally and locally, and we are in constant contact with a large number of school leaders, so we are in an ideal position to advise and share best practice.

Clerk support network (on GovernorHub)

Regular networking opportunities as well as half-termly briefings for clerks with expert speakers. This service is highly valued by the team of committed clerks in Buckinghamshire, who share knowledge and support with each other through this long-standing network.

Model documents and templates

Models, templates, information and toolkits to support and inform your board including:

  • Termly model documents including agendas and crib sheets highlighting what’s new and what needs to be done, by whom, in order to discharge your duties as a board.
  • Annual model terms of reference and standing orders which are updated to ensure governing boards remain compliant with the extensive legislative requirements set before them.

Template documents provide invaluable consistency across schools increasing the efficiency and impact of governing boards as well and minimising the workload for clerks and all those involved in meeting preparation and actions.
