Annal Nayyar reports There is new departmental advice for governing bodies

This covers Maintained schools & academies and free schools

The ‘Statutory policies for schools’ page outlines the policies and other documents school governing bodies are legally required to hold.

For Academies the main areas of change are sections 1.7, 2.2 and 7.6.3. Section 2.2 now includes new content on the governance structure of academies which clearly defines the various structures and roles within academy entities. Section 1.7 and 7.6.3 includes an updated explanation of the expectations regarding the governing body holding a register of interests and management of conflicts of interest.
