Policy Statements

The Southwark Diocesan Board of Education has developed the following policy statements in order to articulate its approach to strategic educational matters.

These are not model policies to be adopted by schools, rather they should be used by schools to inform their decisions on relevant topics at the local level. Our diocesan family of schools can access more detailed guidance on these areas, the SDBE HR Policy Handbook and more by accessing the login area at the top of the page.
