Below you will find the register of the private interests held by members of our board.

An ‘interest’ is a situation where a governor (or an associate of the governing board) may be affected personally or financially, directly or indirectly, or in some way be involved in a decision made at a meeting where the governor is present. 

The details of our Governors' (and anyone who has an association with our Governing Board) interests can be found in the document below.

* Please note, any name highlighted in green has been a member/associate of the Governing Board within the last 12 months but no longer is a serving member/associate. 


The School Governance Procedures state that members of the Governing Body with any such interest must declare it as soon as possible at any meeting of the full Governing Body or committee meeting, must not take part in the discussion, must note vote and should withdraw from the meeting.  Their withdrawal and return should be minuted. There is not a comprehensive definition of what constitutes a pecuniary interest. In all cases, the natural meaning of the words has to be put in the particular context of the contract or other matter being discussed.

Governance Roles in other Educational institutions

Schools and academies are now required to publish any Governance roles currently held by Governors in other educational institutions.  This also includes those positions held within the last 12-months, where a Governor has subsequently come to the natural end of or terminated their term of office.  It is therefore essential that where you do or have a Governance role within another educational institution you provide full details on the declaration form.
