The Chair will ask Members to confirm whether they have any declarable interests in relation to any item on the agenda.
All Members who believe they may have such an interest must declare it and may only:
(a) remain in the meeting while that matter is discussed at the discretion of the Chair or Vice Chair, and
(b) speak on the matter by invitation.
Examples of declarable interests include:
where the outcome of a discussion may provide a personal advantage or avoid disadvantage (pecuniary or non-pecuniary), or where the focus of an agenda item and the likely impact of any outcome is wholly or mainly on a school with which the Member is associated.
