Transparency and interests
Many governors work in a voluntary or paid capacity in organisations that relate to education; and their expertise and networks are often useful to the school for that very reason.
In the interests of transparency, governors declare what education-related interests they have, in the table below. If any debate comes up that directly affects their business or other interests, they declare that fact at the meeting and, when appropriate and in consultation with the chair, recuse themselves from participating in any decision-making process.
