This section contains information to support headteachers, governors and clergy working in the church schools in the Diocese of Manchester.

The Education Department provides statutory functions and advice to the governing bodies of our 178 primary and 12 secondary schools. Ofsted judges 87% of our schools to be Outstanding or Good and 95% are judged Outstanding or Good in their SIAMS inspections.

We provide advice to governing bodies of schools regarding the planning of their places, religious education and worship, leadership and management, particularly in relation to school improvement, and the appointment of senior leaders and governors. We advise voluntary aided schools on land and buildings issues.

Most recently, we have advised governing bodies on academy development; standardised policies and procedures are included on the website.

We hope you find what you are looking for when you visit the website, but if you don’t, please get in touch with a member of our administration team, who will be happy to help with your query.
