New Stat. Requirements for UK school websites

You may not be aware of a change to the Statutory Requirements for school websites.  
From 1st September 2012 all maintained* school websites must show the following information:
In brief, schools now have to supply the following information on their website:
  • Contact details
  • Admission arrangements or where they may be found (community and voluntary controlled schools only) 
  • Link to Ofsted Report
  • Most recent key stage 2 results
  • Most recent key stage 4 results
  • Link to school performance tables on
  • School curriculum information for each year group by subject, including phonics/reading schemes and key stage 4 courses/qualifications as appropriate
  • Behaviour policy
  • Pupil Premium allocation, use and impact on attainment
  • SEN policy
  • Charging and remissions policy
  • School’s ethos and values 
*(academies and free schools must already show this.)
The governing body is therefore responsible for:

  • Ensuring that  the information above is published on the school website – or arranging for the information to be displayed on a website, and the address/details made known to parents
  • Providing a paper copy of the information published on the website, without charge, to parents on request
  • Making sure that the information is updated as soon as is reasonably practicable following a change to that information and, in any event, at least annually
