CES MEMORANDUM ON APPOINTMENT OF TEACHERS IN CATHOLIC SCHOOLS
The Memorandum on Appointment of Teachers in Catholic Schools is an important document. Issued by the Bishops of England and Wales, it sets out their collective requirement on all Catholic schools, be they maintained schools, independent schools, non-maintained special schools or academies, in relation to staffing and the use of CES contracts of employment, workplace policies and associated model employment documents for Catholic schools.
The CES published the amended version of this important document on 11 September 2014. All Catholic school governing bodies must ensure they have a copy of the Memorandum and that they comply with it.
When considering senior leadership appointments, governors should also refer to the Diocesan Guidance for Governing Bodies and Headteachers on the appointment of Headteachers, Deputy Headteachers, Assistant Headteachers and Heads of Religious Education, which is available to download from this website.
