Collecting and Publishing Governing Board Diversity Data
At Whitehouse Primary School, we value diversity and strive to have a governing board that reflects the communities we serve. We encourage our governing board members to voluntarily share their diversity data, including protected characteristics. This information is widely accessible to our school community and the public.
We respect individuals' privacy, and board members have the option to opt out of sharing their information at any given time, including after publication. We ensure that data is anonymized to protect individuals' identities, particularly when board member levels are low.
To learn more about data protection and our commitment to equality, we recommend referring to the Data Protection Toolkit for Schools and the Equality Act 2010: Advice for Schools.
We are committed to transparency in our financial practices. At Whitehouse Primary School, we are proud to share that we have no individuals paid more than £100,000. We adhere to financial benchmarking guidelines and continually strive for efficient and effective use of our resources.
For further financial benchmarking information, please visit the Schools Financial Benchmarking website.
