Declarations of Interest, Pecuniary or Otherwise


Legislation requires all governors to declare any interest in the decisions made by the governing body, pecuniary (financial) or otherwise. We keep a record of annual declarations,  as well as those that crop up at meetings, in the office. Governors who are also parents of pupils at the school, including any staff governors, declare this as an interest and all governors who work or are related to those that work at the school declare this.
 
Clerk to the Governors is Mrs Brown  

The governors and the clerk can be contacted via the school office or email ashpertonclerk@gmail.com
