Clerking Competency Framework

Introduced in April 2017 the new Clerking Competency Framework outlines the knowledge, skills and behaviours required to provide a professional Clerking service to the Governors.

Four competency areas covered in the new Framework are:

    • Understanding Governance
    • Administration
    • Advice and Guidance
    • People and Relationships

The new Framework recognizes the value of professional quality clerks and realises they are critical to the effectiveness of a governing board in fulfilling its core strategic functions.

Having worked in business (media) for nearly 20 years with both managerial and financial responsibilities, I completed the GSA SCITT (School Centred Initial Teacher Training) course in 2015/16 with Fairfield Primary Academy being my home school for the training. I was employed as a class teacher at Fairfield in September 2016 and in addition to my classroom teacher responsibilities am working on a project to streamline the collection and handling of data within school.

Information coming soon...

Sarah Louise Allen

I have two children who are currently at Fairfield. I have working in Human Resources for the last 17 years, formally within the private sector and now within higher education.

I very much look forward to working with Fairfield Primary Academy and believe that I have skills that can transfer from my workplace to the school environment. I am looking forward to looking at and working within the strategy of the academy, to be accountable and to work together with all parties involved to create a caring, professional and safe environment.
