The Governing Board at Pembury Primary School are seeking to appoint a motivated and efficient Clerk.

  • Providing up to date advice and support on governance where possible, or accessing and circulating this after meetings
  • Maintaining registers of attendance and records as needed

We are looking for some who is highly organised with a keen eye for detail, be informed about governance and be committed to their futher training as a clerk.  The full governing board meetings take place at Pembury School and usually begin at 6.00pm for two hours.  There are six meetings per year.
