supporting clerks supporting governors

Welcome to the Essex Clerks Association Website

We are delighted that we are finally launching our new website – profuse apologies for the delay but putting together an informative site like this is never easy!  Please let us know what you think – as the months go by, we will be adding to the bank of information but, if you find that something is missing or you know of a document that you have found invaluable as a clerk, please do let us know.

The role of the Clerk to the Governing Body of a school or an academy is a unique and important one, and clerks need high quality support and advice in order to carry out their jobs effectively.

The Essex Clerks’ Association is run by volunteers and financed by subscriptions from schools and/or clerks across Essex and by occasional donations from professional organisations.  We have now been supporting clerks across the county for many years and we hope that, in some small way, we have helped – in particular, in this time of great change for both education and governance.

Each year we send out a notice to schools asking for a small subscription fee of £15.  This is also payable directly to our Membership Officer at pbates@tinyworld.co.uk. 

In return for this subscription you will help to support us in offering the following to Essex clerks:-

  • Regular briefing papers on topical subjects relevant to school governance
  • Access to the dedicated website and a facility to ask questions
  • The opportunity to attend termly meetings to share good practice and meet and network with other clerks; the next ECA briefing for all clerks is scheduled for Monday, 15 May 2017 at 5pm (further details and to book – there is no charge for this briefing – please contact tinaweavers@gmail.com.)
  • Networking events for clerks

More information about the Essex Clerks’ Assocation and membership can be found in the About ECA section of our site.

Please do not hesitate to contact me, Tina Weavers, the ECA Chair, or any of our Executive Committee – between us with have years of experience and we will do as much as we can to help.
