Developing Church of England Education

Partnership Agreement

The Board of Education has a partnership agreement with its church schools to provide advice and support. These are reviewed each year.

The Agreements outline the services provided for each type of school in the Diocese. These include: 

  • admissions and Appeals
  • school Governance
  • employment Practices
  • appointments of staff
  • religious Education and Worship
  • ethos, Management, Standards and Curriculum
  • finance
  • buildings
  • insurance.

Different schools all have varying needs, so the Agreement is adapted for each of the following:

  • primary
  • secondary
  • voluntary aided
  • voluntary controlled
  • foundation 
  • academies

As part of the agreement, schools can also gain access to the Members' Area of the website.
