Governors' Code of Conduct & Nolan Principles of Public Life

As well as complying with its statutory requirements, our Governing Body has chosen to adopt successive editions of the National Governance Association Code of Conduct (without amendment) and to abide by the seven Nolan Principles of Public Life as set out in that code. The code provides part of a framework for excellence in governance by clearly setting out the expectations on and commitment required from every serving governor, thereby enabling the Governing Body to properly carry out its work within school community and the wider community beyond.
