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
