Benefits of a Professional School Clerking Service

Benefits of a Professional School Clerking Service

Monday 25th November 2019

Providing high-quality education for children and young people is the primary role of all schools and colleges. But the organisation as a whole must work effectively to achieve the highest possible standards. School governing bodies play a vital role in ensuring statutory compliance and the best educational outcomes. When the governing body performs well in an organised, effective manner, the school has the best chance of succeeding.

As key stakeholders, headteachers and governing bodies often need advice and support to perform at their best. A professional clerking service, such as provided by Governance Resolutions, ensures the school board and committees remain statutorily compliant and have access to advice and support on demand.

At Governance Resolutions, we supply schools and colleges with an experienced team of professional clerks. This includes timely, good quality minutes, plus access to clear, timely and accurate advice as required. Alongside this, we also provide support for investigations, admission appeals, exclusions and policy writing. More information on our full range of services can be found by visiting our website:

Governing bodies which use a professional clerking service have more time to focus on their core task: ensuring the smooth running of the school or college. Administration jobs, in particular, can take time and resources away from headteachers and governors.

Keeping continually up to date with education legislation is also an ongoing challenge. New legal and regulatory changes mean educational establishments need to anticipate and plan for the future while maintaining high standards at all times. And when school leaders need advice quickly, having instant access to governance professionals who are aware of statutory frameworks and legal procedures is crucial.

For schools and colleges which want to meet the highest levels of professionalism, a flexible school clerking service is highly recommended. Not only will a company like Governance Resolutions advise on procedures for complying with statutory and legal frameworks, but they will also offer dedicated clerks who will liaise with the governing board and headteacher to ensure the smooth and efficient running of the governing body and its committees.

All our experienced clerks are fully trained and become the single point of contact for governors and headteachers. Having a single point of contact ensures an efficient flow of information. We regularly liaise with Local Authorities to keep updated with local issues and how these impact on the education sector. And with a flexible approach to meet the individual requirements of schools and colleges, we can provide ad-hoc or long-term support as needed.
