KeyDoc: checklist of independent school requirements for publishing information

Significant updates to this checklist October 2021  If your school took part in the DfE's 2021 summer schools programme, you must publish brief details about it by the end of October 2021 – this should include what funding you received and a breakdown of how you spent it. June 2021  We updated our checklist to clarify that you must publish a written statement of your relationships and sex education (RSE) policy. Note this requirement is not included in the DfE's list of what must be published online.
