Kennel Lane is a modern, vibrant and inclusive special school catering for the needs of learners aged 2–19 who have a wide range of learning difficulties. We offer an exciting learning community where every individual is valued and nurtured. 

We have a newly appointed Headteacher and a forward-thinking Governing Body committed to giving our young learners the best possible start in life.

The Clerk will be responsible for preparing agendas in consultation with the headteacher and the chair of governors; producing the minutes of governors’ meetings, distributing documentation and other information to the governing body.

The full governing body currently meets 5 times a year. The meetings are late afternoon, starting at 4 pm and last up to 2 and a half hours. There are 12 committee meetings a year starting at 9.15 am aiming to finish by 11.30 am. All meetings are held at the school. Outside of meeting times work can be carried out from home or at the school.

The new clerk will also be expected to attend the termly briefing sessions held by the Local Authority which are held during the working day and take advantage of other training sessions that may be offered.
