Policies and procedures

Policies and procedures

Policies are intended to determine how the school works.

The statutory ones are largely strategic; they should determine how the school addresses certain key processes by providing a framework for action by the headteacher and staff.

Most schools will have several other policies in addition to the statutory ones, which the governing board does not have to approve (though it may, in agreement with the headteacher, still do so for some of them). Often these will be operational and may include such things as the curriculum for individual subjects.
