Our model designated teacher policy is designed for you to adapt to suit your school’s context.
It covers relevant requirements and good practice, and has been approved by Forbes Solicitors.
Note: the DfE no longer requires you to have this policy. It updated its guidance on statutory policies for schools and academy trusts on 15 March 2022 to reflect this change.
Examples from schools
- Almondsbury Church of England Primary School in South Gloucestershire
- The Forest CE Federation, a federation of 5 primary schools in Northamptonshire
- Mount St Joseph Catholic School in Bolton
- Osborne School, a maintained school for pupils aged 11 to 19 with learning disabilities, in Hampshire
