All schools are required to keep a register of any business or personal interest of the governors or staff employed at the school and the requirement to keep this register extends to the immediate families of governors and staff. These registers are maintained to protect public funds and help to prevent fraud and corruption by eliminating potential conflicts of interest. This page gives further details of this along with the relevant forms for governors and staff to use to report conflicts to their school.
The Governance Service provides a comprehensive, professional, administrative and advisory service to support School Governors, Chairs and Headteachers through a selection of packages available.
The recruitment of a new member of staff is an important responsibility and should be given the necessary time and effort to ensure it is done correctly.
School Governors are the largest volunteer force in the country.
As a School Governor you could play an important role in shaping the future of the local education service.
All Governing Bodies of community, community special, foundation, voluntary aided and voluntary controlled schools can agree on a model for the size and membership of their Governing Body based on what best suits the circumstances of that school.
