The S4S Governor Support Department have many years’ experience working with a range of educational establishments and are committed to providing you with high quality services and support.
Whilst we have a range of packages available, we are happy to discuss your individual requirements so that we can provide a bespoke service tailored to your ever changing needs.
We deliver a range of packages which provide a complete professional clerking service and a comprehensive programme of Governor Training and Development.
Our Department works with Governors to assist them in their increasingly complex role in the strategic management of their School/Academy to promote high standards of educational achievement. All our clerks are DBS checked.
Enabling Decision Making
Clerks have a key role in making sure Governors’ limited time is well used at a strategic level, rather than wasted on unnecessary tasks that should be delegated.
Our clerking service includes:
- Collaborative preparation of focussed agendas for Board and committee meetings
- Distribution of agendas and accompanying papers
- Circulation of draft minutes to the Chair and/or Headteacher within 10 working days of the meeting.
- Ensuring meetings are quorate and management of governor attendance and absence
- Advice on Board composition including vacancies, disqualifications and expiry of terms of office.
- Support for Governors and appointing bodies on timely management of appointments and governor election processes
- Advising and leading on procedural matters relating to the election of a Chair
- Maintaining a register of pecuniary and business interests.
What Our Customers Say
‘I have used the S4S Governor Support services for a few years now and find I have a high quality, knowledgeable, and trustworthy support service for the Governors and myself, as Head teacher. The services provide a wealth of information and experience to support our school. The Clerk to the Governing Body meetings provides invaluable support and guidance throughout all tricky matters from Governor protocols to details of Financial procedures. I don’t know where I would be without my Clerk, she’s brilliant! Thank you S4S !
