St Hugh of Lincoln RC Primary School
Governing Body

Register of Business Interests for School Governors

 

From 1 September 2015, governing bodies are under a duty to publish on their website their register of interest. The register should set out the relevant business interests of governors and details of any other educational establishments they govern. The register should also set out any relationships between governors and members of the school staff including spouses, partners and relatives.
