Declarations of Interests 2016 / 2017

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 2016/2017 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

Gillian Strickland: A partner of Higson & Co. Chartered Accountants from 1 September 2011 (Neither party receives payment for the provision of any services to the trust).

No other interests declared.
