Register of Interests

The Governing Body must ensure that Governors are not involved in activities that might conflict with their role within the school.  As such a register of interest must be made available on the school website.

This document is updated fully each year and reviewed throughout the year.  It is the Governors responsibility to make the school aware of any changes during the year.
