If you have a specific issue which is either urgent or quite complicated, a member of our team may be able to help. Please use the Contact Us page to email our clerk with your request.
Board members have, for example, been invited by local governing boards to share their personal experiences of academisation, federation, how to find the right multi-academy trust and suggested due diligence.
We have teamed up with Oxfordshire County Council’s Clerking Service, to introduce any Reading schools who have need of a professional clerk. They can be contacted here.
Governors who are thrown in ‘at the deep end’ to roles such as chair, or safeguarding, should be supported by colleagues. We can partner you with a more experienced governor to help you until you are more established. Similarly, if you feel that your governing body would benefit from another’s experience, such as modelling appropriate challenge during meetings, how to organise meetings efficiently, good governor recruitment practices, improved governance documentation etc., then please get in touch.
