Job description

The Hebden Bridge Schools Federation is seeking to appoint an experienced, enthusiastic and highly motivated Clerk to the Governing body.

The Hebden Bridge Schools Federation is a group of three successful schools; Stubbings Infant School, Central Street Infant School and Riverside Junior School.

Governors are responsible for the quality of education our children receive in all three schools. The governors set the long-term strategic direction and vision for the Federation, appoint school leaders who manage the schools and keep regular oversight of what is happening in our schools.

The detailed work is carried out by two committees; The Curriculum and Standards Committee which looks at the standards, progress and care of the children and the Finance, Staffing and Pay Committee which is responsible for budget, buildings and staffing issues. Each committee meets once a term and the output of the committees are brought to the full governing body who then meet towards the end of each term. In addition to this there is an AGM each September. At budget time the Finance, Staffing and Pay Committee have 1-2 additional meetings after which the full governing body will meet to receive their recommendations. So, in total 13 meetings which require preparation, co-ordination and minuting, tend to be held on Wednesday evenings and run for about 2 hours. Our current clerk has averaged c220 hours over previous years carrying out the role.

The role commences as soon as possible at a pay level of £4,000 per annum and is fully supported through the Calderdale Council training programme and through individual performance management.

Interested applicants are invited to consider the Job Description (available on request or via our websites) and complete an application form and submit it to [email protected].

Closing date: 14th October 2023 at 5pm.

Shortlisting: 17th October 2023

Interviews: 19th to 21st October 2023 TBC.

The Federation is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
