Bulwell St Mary’s Governing Body Members
As a church school we work closely with the Diocese of Southwell and the membership of our Governing Body clearly reflects this. To become a member of the Governing Body, each individual must meet certain criteria and each year we complete a range of compliance documentation, including declaring any interests we may have, any close relationships with others across the Trust, any other roles whereby there may be a direct or indirect connection, and any third party transactions.
All of which are declared on a register on interests which can be viewed in the document below:-
