Policies required by law for a primary school

Discussion in 'Governors' started by tom clancy, Mar 7, 2012.

  1. I don't have a "cover policy" nor do I intend to publish one! I'm not sure how it can be assumed that anyone other than the usual teacher taking a class is a form of mis-management. Sounds like Bronco has a bee in his/her bonnet about this.
    DfE are in the process of consulting on reducing the number of statutory policies. I think the plan is to have a reduced list available for september this year/
  2. The Dfe have published (last revised in February 2102) a list of statutory documents and policies which is available from the DfE site here: http://www.education.gov.uk/schools/leadership/statutoryguidance/a00201669/statutory-policies-for-schools This list replaces the 37 policies etc listed in the annex to the (still current ) Guide to the Law 2010.
    The new list did not include Safeguarding, so a note appears at the end of the DfE document to indicate that there may be additional policies which schools should have unless there are compelling reasons not to. (Hmmmm - helpful!)
    An editable policy update document (not from DfE) can be downloaded, based on the specified policies first listed in January 2012 ( http://clerktogovernors.files.wordpress.com/2012/01/policy-review-timetable-20122.doc )
    More information is available here: http://clerktogovernors.wordpress.com/2012/01/11/the-statutory-policies-for-schools/
    Hope all this is useful!
