Governors can make their Confirmations and add any Declarations of Interest on their Profile page
(*Important* Do note, these cannot be made directly on the 'Confirmations' or 'Declarations' tabs that you'll find in a Governing Board area - these are for viewing and administrating only)
Start by clicking on your name at the top-right of the screen
Then click on the Profile option
This takes you to your personal Profile page, where you can add or change your declarations of interest and confirmations by clicking on Declarations and Confirmations
Entering a new declaration
Click on the arrow to see your current declarations of interest
Nothing to declare?
If you have no conflicts of interest, you still need to confirm that you have 'nothing to declare' so your board can evidence compliance
Make sure there are no details recorded in the interests section and select ‘I have no interests to declare’ on the left hand side of the screen
This will then show that you have confirmed you have nothing to declare and when you did so
Something to declare?
Select ‘Add Interest’ from the right hand side of the screen
Complete the fields as required and then select ‘Add’. Make sure all details recorded are accurate
If you need to add more than one declaration, just click ‘Add interest’ (the previous step) again
When all your declarations have been added you still need to confirm and submit them so that your clerk can view and download the details
This will then show that you have confirmed your interests and when you did so
Re-confirming previous declarations
You are likely to be asked by your clerk to re-confirm your declarations of interest each year at the beginning of term
In your declarations and confirmations area, click on the arrow to see your current status declarations of interest
Reset the confirmation by clicking the blue 'clear'
Then re-confirm by clicking confirm and submit your declarations
Please note that any previous confirmation date recorded on the system, will be overwritten by the new date when you press the Confirm button
Viewing board declarations
You can view all declarations of interest for your board in a Declarations tab in the Governing Board area
You can download a copy of your personal declarations in the declarations and confirmations tab in your Profile area
To download declarations for all members of your board, go to the 'About' tab in your governing board area and then to 'Downloads'
Scroll down until you reach the downloads for 'Declarations of interest'
