Section 10 - Nomination & Election Templates

Publication of data about Members, Trustees and Governors

From September 2016 the Academies Financial Handbook requires academy trusts to provide information about their members and trustees as well as those sitting on any local governing bodies that may be in place.  The data which is collected in ‘Get Information About Schools’ and made publicly available is:

  • full name (including title)
  • appointing body (eg board, foundation, parents etc)
  • date of appointment
  • date term of office ends / ended if in last year
  • whether they are a trust member, a trustee, the chair of trustees, or a local governor on a local governing body

In addition, for all these individuals. the DfE will collect within ‘Get Information About Schools’, but not publish, a range of information to help them to identify specific individuals:

  • postcode
  • date of birth
  • previous names
  • nationality and country of birth
  • direct email address for chair

This governance data that is not publicly available will be encrypted within the system and access will be restricted to a small number of users who need it to fulfil their official responsibilities. The email address of the chair of the board will be made available to regional schools commissioner offices on request where they need direct contact with the chair. Subject to successful pilots, the DfE will also use the email address to send to chairs information about the issues that national performance data suggests the board needs to address with its senior leadership team.

By submitting your application to be a Member, you are consenting to sharing your information with the Department for Education and Companies House.
