The Register of Interest
From 1st September 2015, governing bodies of local authority maintained schools in England are required to publish on their website their register of interests.
The register meets statutory requirements by setting out the relevant business interests of our Governors and details of any other educational establishments they govern. The register includes details of any relationships between governors and members of the school staff including spouses, partners and relatives.
The Governing Body Committees
The Governing Body has two main primary committees that meet on a termly basis. There are other committees but these only meet as and when required. Each committee has individual terms of reference which provide clear details of what the committee’s responsibilities are.
In order to comply with the DfE’s republished statutory guidance in March 2015 which stipulates new requirements regarding the publication of Governor’s details, the Governing Body Committee List shows details of the committees and the Governors that have been appointed on each committee. In addition this list gives details regarding our Link Governors and their subject area.
The Governing Body Constitution
In March 2015, the Dfe republished statutory guidance on “The constitution of governing bodies of maintained schools. The guidance stipulates new requirements regarding the publication of Governor’s details. The statutory guidance, which Governing Bodies must have regard to, stipulates that;
Governors hold an important public office and their identity should be known to their school and wider communities. Governing Bodies should therefore publish on their website information about their members.
In order to comply with this latest guidance the Governing Body Constitution Document shows details of the names of our Governors, the category they have been appointed under, their term of office and gives details regarding their voting rights within Governing Body meetings.
From 1 September 2015, governing bodies of local authority maintained schools in England are required to publish on their website details of Governors attendance records at governing body and committee meetings over the last academic year.
In line with recommended guidance the records are updated every September. The records were last updated in September 2018 and contain information from 1st September 2017 to 31st August 2018. These records will be reviewed and updated in September 2019.
