Declarations of Interests 2018 / 2019

All Governors are required, in September each year, to complete a Declaration of Interest form. The Clerk to the Governors at the School prepares a formal report to the Governing Body confirming the extent of Governor compliance with this requirement and setting out details of all interests. For the year 2017/2018 there was 100% compliance. No interests were declared. The Register of Governor interests is available at the School for inspection on request to the Clerk.

The declarations show that no Governors have any direct indirect pecuniary or non-pecuniary interests other than the following:

Mrs A Gray: Governor of Kimberley Primary School

Mrs L Braithwaite: sibling of CEO of EMET Trust

No other interests declared.
