Governors are required to declare any interest they or their spouse, partner or close family members have, or plan to have that are related or might be construed as being related to the school and its budget.

These include (but are not limited to):

  • relevant business interests;
  • governance roles in other educational institutions; and
  • any material interests arising from relationships between board members or relationships between board members and school staff.

Sally Sumpter has indicated that she has carried out paid work for AQA, Hodder and Keynote Education. No other governor has made any such declaration. The governors are regularly reminded that they should declare any interest when they meet as a Joint Committee and Full Governing Body and this is recorded in the minutes.
