Bishops' Memorandum

Memorandum On Appointment Of Teachers To Catholic Schools

You will find below ‘The Bishops Memorandum on Appointment of Teachers in Catholic Schools’. This is an extremely important document which has been issued by the Bishops of England and Wales and which sets out their collective requirement on all Catholic schools and colleges, including schools in the trusteeship of a religious order (which includes maintained schools, academies in England, independent schools, sixth-form colleges and non-maintained special schools) in relation to staffing and the use of CES contracts of employment, workplace policies and associated model employment documents for Catholic schools. All Catholic school governing bodies must ensure that they have a copy of the Memorandum and that they comply with it.
