Detail

These memoranda of understanding are formal agreements between DfE and the Church of England and the Catholic Church, jointly developed by DfE and the National Society and the Catholic Education Service respectively.

You should read them alongside the ‘Schools causing concern’ guidance.

We will review and update these documents to take account of future legislation and government policy as set out in the white paper ‘Educational excellence everywhere’.
