School Policies

In the first attachment you will find a list of policies schools should have together with some links to model policies.

In January 2012, the DfE published the long awaited updated list of statutory policies and documents that schools are required to have.  It includes information on how often each policy must be reviewed, and a reminder that governors do not have to write these themselves and can delegate the task to a member of staff.  The National Governors Association would go further and argue that the drafting of policies should be delegated to a member of staff, who will take into account the strategic steer from the governing body. This document can be found in the second attachment below.
