These are the main legal requirements of the Board and governors take on other monitoring responsibilities as well.

All governors are required to declare any business interests following the guidelines below.

These notes are intended to provide guidance as to what individual governors and head teachers should register.

If in doubt as to what to disclose or register you should ask yourself ‘If a person, who knows all the relevant facts would view your interest in the issue being discussed to be so great that it is likely to prejudice your judgement’, you must declare your interest, not vote on the issue and ensure that your interest is noted on the Register of Business Interests.

Examples of what should be disclosed on the register are as follows:

  • Details of your employer, and the employers of your partner or relatives.
  • Any corporate body where you, your partner or a relative own more than £5000 of the nominal share value.
  • Any firm in which you, your partner or any relatives are partners or directors.
  • Any other body or organisation in which you, you partner or relative hold a position of control or management.
  • Ownership by yourself, your partner or a relative of any land or property which becomes the subject of a discussion and/or vote.
  • Any relative on the school staff

It is only necessary for you to register those business interests you may have which the school might enter into a relationship with.  Should your circumstances, or those of a partner or relative change, you should arrange to amend the register of business interests accordingly.

In any event, the register should be reviewed on at least an annual basis.

If you have nothing to declare on the register, this should also be stated and a ‘nil’ entry marked against your name.

The following entries are the registers of governors’ business interests as of October 2019. Governors are required to update these annually and notify the clerk of any significant changes throughout the year. Individual signed copies are held in school.
