Codes of Conduct for Governors and Directors

CES Model Codes of Conduct for Governors and Directors of all Catholic Schools and Academies

Governors and Directors of all Catholic schools and academies in England and Wales should adopt a code of conduct which sets out the purpose of their governing body or board and describes the appropriate relationship between individual governors or directors, the whole governing body or board and the leadership team of the school or college.

The CES has published three CES model Codes of Conduct that you can download here as follows:

  • Governors of a Governing Body of a Voluntary Aided School, Federation or Sixth Form College (in England and Wales)
  • Directors of a Single Academy Trust Company or a Multi Academy Trust Company (in England)
  • Governors of a Local Governing Body within a Multi Academy Trust Company (in England)

These model codes of conduct are designed to preserve and develop the Catholic character of our schools and academies. Please download and complete the text boxes as appropriate.
