We send out regular email updates to school leaders and Governors on major legal/regulatory or Ofsted changes that are forthcoming or are about to come into effect, with a view to enabling the governing body to keep abreast of their responsibilities. We will also share useful tips to streamline school governance.

Record Keeping Service

We keep records of governing body constitution, appointments, terms of office, committee memberships, specialist roles and pecuniary interests as well as agendas, minutes, policy schedules, DBS records and other governance related documentation.

Coordinating, drafting and circulating agenda

Chairs work together with our clerk to suggest items for inclusion in the agenda which is circulated in good time for each meeting together with appropriate meeting related papers.

Virtual Attendance at governing body and committee
meetings (as requested)

Your assigned clerk will ‘attend’ your Board or committee meetings virtually as required on mutually agreed dates. They will be available to advise on procedural matters relevant to the meeting.

Drafting and circulating minutes

Following each meeting, we will send a draft set of minutes to the Chair of the meeting for approval and a copy is saved for future reference.

Accredited eLearning for all governors

All Governors or Trustees of the school will have free, unlimited access to our clerking & governance eLearning library.  This offers several CPD accredited courses that are updated in line with resources and Governor demand.

Our Judicium clerk is always professional and hugely supportive during our meetings. However, her service goes beyond this: she has used her experience and knowledge to provide additional information to support our governors' understanding.

She is excellent at providing support with navigating the governor hub and has supported our new governors to feel part of our team – she always replies to the notice board messages and is so friendly and enthusiastic with her responses!"
