The Governor Support Team provide a professional clerking and support service to governing bodies throughout the East Riding. We aim to help raise standards in East Riding schools by providing high quality support, guidance and advice to school governors and governing bodies to help them carry out their duties and responsibilities efficiently and effectively.
The main focus of our service delivery is the clerking of governing body meetings and committee meetings, although a great deal of support and advice is sought and provided outside the parameters of formal meetings. The Service has a central role in providing specialist procedural, regulatory, administrative and organisational support to governing bodies ensuring that they are functioning properly and effectively so that they can demonstrate that they are meeting statutory expectations.
To help schools meet their responsibilities, Accommodation Services offers a general caretaking service to schools during term time. The service has links with Children, Family and Adult Services and other Directorates to allow quick and easy referral and resolution of any issues that may arise.
The service will be provided by trained and experienced staff with expertise in caretaking. Staff will be employed by the Council and subject to standard recruitment, employment and vetting procedures for working at schools.
Schools Library Service
The Schools Library Service (also referred to as “the SLS”) supports schools in delivering the National Curriculum, improving reading standards and developing a systematic approach to information literacy by providing the loan of high quality and well maintained books through a delivery system which is reliable and effective plus advice and support around reading and management of the school library.
Through links with the School Improvement Service and Library and Information Services, the SLS contributes to CPD and National book events for all schools.
Equality and Diversity
The Corporate Policy Team provides an Equality and Diversity service to schools and academies to support them in meeting their duties in relation to the Equality Act 2010 and the Public Sector Equality Duty. The service helps education providers understand how the above legislation applies to them, what they are required to do to comply with the statutory equality duties (including consideration of the nine protected characteristics) support to develop actions and equality objectives and also, assistance with monitoring and publishing progress towards these key duties. This includes advice and guidance in the development and revision of equality policies, accessibility audits and accessibility plans and also an equality training package for staff members.
