Template Contracts

The Catholic Education Service produces model contracts of employment for the various roles within both Catholic schools and academies in order to ensure that the Bishops' objective that Catholic schools fulfil their responsibilities to preserve and develop the Catholic character of the school is met. The documentation can be accessed here.

Should your school or academy be jointly run by the Catholic Church and the Church of England or the Church in Wales then please contact the appropriate education officer at your diocese. The CES has developed employment documentation that are wholly based upon the CES model template contracts but with small and important amendments that have been made and agreed between the CES and The National Society for the Church of England and the Church in Wales.
