Register of Trustees’ Interests
Trustees’ Business and other Interests 2017/18
Trustees have a legal duty to act only in the best interests of the school. In order to identify any potential conflict, trustees are required to declare annually:
- ownership or partnership of a company or organisation which may be used by the trust/school to provide goods or services;
- goods or services offered which may be used by the trust/school;
- any close relation to someone who satisfies either of the above;
- any close relationship to someone who is employed by the trust/school.
Trustees are also required to disclose if they are a governor or trustee at another school.
In addition to an annual declaration, trustees are required to disclose any personal or business interest in any agenda item at the beginning of every meeting and temporarily leave the meeting whilst that item is being discussed.
