Statutory Policy List


Updated links have been provided for the following:

  • charging and remissions
  • teacher appraisal
  • data protection
  • freedom of information publication scheme
  • instrument of government

Clarification in relation to academies and free schools:

  • Written statement of behaviour principles - for academies and free schools, the proprietor is required to ensure that there is a written policy to promote good behaviour amongst pupils and that the sanctions to be adopted in the event of pupil misbehaviour are drawn up and effectively implemented.

The following document has been removed:

  • Governor’s annual report to parents (maintained nursery schools) - It has come to light that the removal of the requirement for maintained schools to prepare a Governors’ Annual Report to Parents in The Education Act 2005, and Commencement Order No 1 to that Act, has resulted in an anomaly in the legislation. We can confirm that governing bodies of maintained nursery schools are no longer required to prepare a report.

The following document has been added:

  • register of pupils’ admission to schools.
