 Register of interest

Governors have a legal duty to act only in the best interests of their schools. Where a situation arises in which they cannot do this due to a personal interest they have, steps should be taken to identify, prevent and record the conflict. This ensures governors are acting in the best interests of the school.

None of the governors have any office of governance in any other educational institution.

None of the governors have any material interest arising from relationships between governors and school staff.

Ms.Lawson, Mrs. Crawford and Miss Rawlinson have a financial/ business interest in the school because they are employees. None of the other governors have any financial or business interests relating to the school.
