The School Governing Body ~ Statutory Information

As Governors, we are required to advise the following:

Business Interests:

On 22nd September 2016, all governors were asked to declare any business interests for either themselves or their family members. It was stated the one governor worked for the DfE and another for RM Education.  A copy of the signed declaration is retained by the Clerk to Governors.

In addition, Governors confirmed that they are not related to, or are in a relationship with, any members of staff.

This information is to highlight any conflict of interest.  If there was a conflict of interest on a particular point, the governor in question would remove themselves from the discussion.  Governors will be requested at every meeting to declare any interests and these will be minuted accordingly.

Governor Positions Held:

On 22nd September 2016, all governors confirmed they will adhere to the Code of Conduct and confirmed any additional governor positions held.  All governors at Winnersh Primary School only serve on one governing body with the exception of Ian Skeet who is also an Associate Governor at Farley Hill School.  A copy of the signed declaration is retained by the Clerk to Governors.

Collating this information is a part of the Government’s Prevent Strategy.  Governors will be requested at every meeting to declare any changes to this information and should Governors sit on more than one Governing Body this information shall be relayed to Wokingham Borough Council.

Attendance at Meetings:

The FGB held 6 meetings during the academic year 2015-2014 – all governors in place for the full year attended a minimum of 5 out of the 6 meetings with the exception of one who attended 4 out of 6 but the reason for absence accepted.  All absences were recorded and any apologies given were accepted by the Full Governing Body and minuted.  A full copy of meeting attendance is retained by the Clerk to Governors.

Attendance at FGB meetings will be recorded for the academic year 2016-17 and posted September 2017.

Governors Equalities Statement – September 2016-September 2018:

The Governors of Winnersh Primary School will endeavour to ensure that all children at the school have equal access to opportunities to participate in culture, arts, academic and sporting activities for example lunch time clubs, after school clubs, and representing pupils in competitions, tournaments and events.
