The schedules do not provide an exhaustive list of policies. They feature:

  • policies that may come to the governing board or one of its committees for approval
  • statutory policies set out in Department for Education (DfE) guidance: statutory policies for schools and academy trusts
  • links to useful guidance associated with each policy
