The importance of the role of the clerk and, in the case of academies, the company secretary to “support and advise” a board is noted in the Governance Handbook.  With so many changes to the legal structure of schools and their constitutions, this can be a daunting role. 

The session will cover some of the topics that we have discussed in previous seminars on the role of the company secretary but will have more of a focus on the value that clerks and the company secretaries can add to the board to ensure there is effective governance.
