All governors are required to sign a declaration of pecuniary or other interests annually and also to declare any relevant interests at each meeting. Carl Meader declared his interest as a governor of Springfield Lower School and Mayor of Kempston. Jeremy Chopping declared his daughter works for the school. There were no other interests declared by governors.


Minutes of meetings will be posted when approved and signed off by the Chair (this usually takes place at the next meeting). Attendance of meetings is kept as rolling log on each set of minutes.
