Pecuniary Interests and Attendance
Academic Year 2019-2020
Pecuniary Interests of Governors
Governors’ decisions must be taken and seen to be taken without any possibility of the influence of external or private interest. It is therefore the duty of all School Governors to declare any personal interest in any matter which is before the Governors decision. The rules relating to this have been codified and are now contained in the Education (School Government)(Amendment) Regulations 1996.
A direct pecuniary interest is where a Governor may personally benefit from the consequences of a decision.
An indirect pecuniary interest is where a Governor’s employer, a partner in a partnership, or a company in which they have shares, a body of which they are a trustee, director or member, such as a club or charity may benefit from the consequence of the decision.
To comply with the DfE regulations regarding transparency and honesty the Governors of Kirton Lindsey Primary School have declared their pecuniary interests. The governing bodies pecuniary interest and meeting attendance documents for the current and previous academic year can be downloaded below.
