Declarations of Business Interests

  • It is vital that Directors/governors and staff act, and are seen to act, impartially. All members of the Board and governing bodies are required to complete a declaration of their business interests. It is also required as a matter of good practice, that the headteachers and other senior staff complete declarations. Individual declarations should be maintained together in a register.
  • At the start of each relevant meeting Directors are asked to declare any interests in a matter included on the agenda.
  • Where a Director/Governor or member of staff has any interest, either pecuniary or non-pecuniary, in a matter to be discussed at a Board meeting the Director, governor or member of staff must declare their interest and take no part in any discussion or decisions related to the matter .
