Clerking Services

Our Principles:

Within Clerking and Appeals Associates Ltd, we seek to be mutually supportive and work together as a team. We are guided by three main principles:

  • To aspire to high professional standards in the service we provide and to act with integrity in any aspect of our work
  • To ensure that Governing Boards understand their statutory obligations and to assist them to fulfil these
  • That our service will develop and improve governance within our client schools and thereby improve outcomes for children and their families

The services listed below are typical of the range we provide to Schools and Academies. Just contact us with your requirements and we will prepare an individual quotation to meet your specific needs.
