Governor Pecuniary and Business Interests

No Governors have declared a financial or business interest that would conflict with their roles and responsibilities. This is part of each Governor meeting in order that Governors may state any conflict of interest in relation to the proposed agenda and withdraw if necessary.

No Governor has identified that they are involved with the governance of any other educational establishment.

Governor Statement of Behaviour Principles

Copies of the sub-committee minutes (Finance & Personnel/Curriculum & Pupils) can be requested via the office.
