All governors are required to make an annual declaration of any relevant business and pecuniary interests that could represent a conflict of interest when exercising their role as a governor at the school (as recorded in the Emmaville Pecuniary Interests Register). This includes governance roles in other educational institutions and any material interests arising from relationships between governors or relationships between governors and school staff (including spouses, partners and close relatives).
At the present time declarations are as follows:
William Purvis – Chair of Governors at Emmaville Primary School is also the Chair of Governors at Thorp Academy and Winlaton West Lane Primary School.
Melanie Cornish – Governor at Emmaville Primary School is also the Chair of Governors at High Spen Primary School. In addition, Melanie is employed at the school to deliver Press Pack lessons to Y4 pupils. This is for ten weekly sessions and is conducted through Bringing Words to Life, a local organisation based in Blaydon, where Melanie is Chief Executive.
