All Governors are required to sign an annual declaration of business interests and report any new interests at each Governing Board meeting. The only current declaration is that Mr Birdsall is the temporary Executive Headteacher at Altofts Junior School as well as Headteacher of Crofton Junior School. 

“It is with great pride that I undertake the role of Chair of Governors.
