All governors must declare interests that may conflict with the work that they do. Currently, no governors have declared no conflicting interests. A full register of business interests is maintained in the school office.
No governors are governors in other schools, and none have relationships with staff or employees of the school.

We have developed a ‘Governor Job Description‘  so that you can see the expectations of the role. If you are interested in becoming a governor when we have a vacancy, please contact the school office or the Chair of Governors.

Our governors operate within the guidelines of an agreed Code of Practice for our Governors, and are expected to operate within the ‘Nolan Principles of Public Life’ at all times.

Attendance record of governors

A record is kept by the clerk to the governing body, of governors attendance at meetings. All Governors whose term of office continues into 2018-19 had 100% attendance.
