Declaration of Interest? ...

Register of personal, pecuniary or business interests

All the governors and associate members of St Luke's listed above have signed the Register of personal, pecuniary or business interests, This is a declaration of any personal or business interest they or any relative or person closely connected with them, have with businesses or other organisations that may have dealings with the school. This could for example include owning or having a relative work for a business that had dealings with school; having a relative working in or for school or being a governor of another school.

If any interest a governor has could be seen to cause a conflict of interest they would be asked to withdraw from any decision making concerned. This is to ensure that our governors can always be seen to be putting the interest of the school first.

Examples of business or pecuniary interests that should be recorded include:

  • business interests such as directorships

  • working for an organisation that may quote or carry out work for the school or provision of extended services

  • owning or having at least a 10% share of a company that may carry out work for the school for example, a local builder

  • if they are the leader of voluntary organisation using the school facilities;

  • if they are a member of a parents group using school facilities

  • if they are related to a member of staff or a governor at the school

  • any business or pecuniary interest of relatives and other individuals who may exert influence on a governor
