Our Register of Interests demonstrates transparency and good governance of the financial management in school in accordance with the Academies Financial Handbook.

 

An individual declaration for registering interests has been completed and signed by all staff with a financial input (e.g. Budget holders) and all members of the Governing Body. The declaration requests staff and governors to certify that:

  • They have declared all beneficial interests, which they or any person closely connected with them have with businesses or other organisations, which may have dealings with the school.
  • They have declared details of any other educational establishment which they govern
  • They have set out any relationships with members of school staff
  • They have agreed to inform the school of any changes in these interests
