Register of Pecuniary Interests:

Each year governors are required to sign a register of pecuniary interests. This declares whether they have any financial or business interests that could conflict with their duties as a school governor. Over the past 3 years, no financial or business interests have been declared by the school governors and none are related to members of staff.
