Required As soon as possible  

 

Are you interested in supporting a local school and engaging with your community? Do you have basic administrative skills, good writing ability and an eye for detail? Would you like to gain new skills in a flexible, varied and interesting role?

We are looking for a clerk to the governing body who will be responsible, among other things, for:

The timely circulation of agendas

Attending governing body meetings and the production of accurate minutes 

Monitoring governing body membership and attendance

Maintaining the register of governors’ business interests

Providing administrative support to the governing body 

Providing advice to governors on their legal and procedural duties.

The governing body generally meets in the evenings but the rest of the work can be done at home at any time. At the moment some meetings are held online and some in person. 

Clerking for both the full governor meetings and committees in the school amounts to approximately 150 hours per year including attendance at meetings (up to 14 per school year) and preparation and follow-up, as well as other duties related to the governing body’s operations.

We are interested in receiving applications from experienced clerks but we would also like to hear from anyone who might not have clerking experience but would like to train as one, as we can offer full training for this role.

 

We are renowned for placing a high value on staff wellbeing and professional development at all levels.

 

Situated just east of Oxford in a unique parkland site, Wheatley Park School is a flourishing 11- 18 academy with a vibrant comprehensive intake. 

 

Education has the power to change lives, communities and society for the better. At RLT we believe that we can achieve more for our pupils, trainees, staff and communities by working together rather than alone. Schools in RLT are united by a common belief in the benefits of working together, and by our commitment to shared principles.

 

OUR VISION is for our schools and SCITT to improve rapidly, continuously and sustainably: to be better faster together.

OUR ‘WHY?’ is that children and young people ‘only get one go’ in school and therefore as part of RLT we aim to ensure the best possible ‘go’ for our pupils.

OUR ‘HOW?’ is through the highest support and challenge for our schools and each other, underpinned by our principles.

 

Our employees benefit from a wide variety of support including extensive  continuing professional learning and development opportunities, wellbeing and staff networks and access to Defined Benefit Pension Schemes (TPS and LGPS) for all staff. For more information on what it is like to work for the Trust, and the benefits you could access, please see our “Working in RLT” guide.

 

This role includes regulated activity relevant to children.
