School Premises: Policies and Guidelines

This page contains links to the most important documents relating to the occupation and use of school premises by governing bodies of schools in the Trusteeship of the Diocese. It is hope that the documents may also be of assistance to the Trustees of Religious Orders and their schools: these schools should also contact their Religious Order for details of any specific policies applying to them.

Occupation of School Premises

This document sets out the basis upon which governing bodies occupy Docesan premises: it sets out the conditions of occupation and the limits of the governing body's powers to deal with the premises.

Capital Procurement Policy Documents

These two documents, introduced in 2012, aim to set out more comprehensively the Diocese's policy and guidance on matters of capital procurement for school governing bodies and for the professional consultants supporting our schools. They consist of the following documents:

Capital Procurement Guidance for Governing Bodies

Capital Procurement Guidance for Professional Consultants

Comments and feedback from governors on either of these documents would be appreciated and should be sent to Nigel Spears: nigelspears@rcdow.org.uk.

School Premises Policy and Guideline (2003)

The document established the framework within which governing bodies, headteachers and other relevant parties undertake the management and stewardship of the premises. Some parts of it have been superseded by the above documents.
