Register of Governor’s Business Interests

Under the County Council’s Financial Scheme, every governing body is required to establish and update a register of governors’ business interests.  This means that governors and headteachers must register and declare business interests that might relate to their duties.  The register was updated in the Autumn Term 2022 with the following declarations :
