Register of Pecuniary and Business Interests

Governors must declare any relevant business interests as well as the details of any other educational establishments they govern.  The register must also set our any relationships between governors and members of the school staff including spouses, partners and relatives.  

The school is required to maintain a similar register of staff interests that should also be reviewed annually – as specified in the NCC Code of Conduct.  Staff had previously been included with the governor’s declarations but in light of the governing body register of interests being required to be published on the school web site, a separate register is held in school. Staff governors are included on both registers.
