Governing body

At Ursuline High School we have a dedicated and committed Governor team. As these Governors can be a part of important decisions of the school Ursuline make sure that they follow council guidelines meaning no possibilities on conflicts or bias deicisons occur.

Ursuline ensures that:

Each member of staff or of the governing body should ensure that, before they become involved in making a decision, or participate in a discussion or authorises any transaction on any matter, there are no conflicts of interests that, in the opinion of a fair-minded and informed observer, would suggest a real possibility of bias.

In the interests of transparency and accountability, members of schools staff and the governing body are required to register in advance interests that are capable of causing conflicts. In addition, in relation to specific decisions, disclosure should be made of any interests that might conflict with their duties.
