Statutory policies for schools document
Governing bodies and proprietors are required to hold each of these policies and other documents, as outlined, however:
The document makes clear how often each policy must be reviewed and also shows the level of approval required, where this is prescribed in regulations.
There are instances where statutory guidance states that policies and procedures should be in place. Although this is not the same as a legal requirement, the list makes clear the policies referenced in statutory guidance.
Academies and free schools have greater freedoms than maintained schools in relation to school policies and other documents. Where relevant, arrangements applying to these schools are noted against each entry.
