All schools are required to have a clear set of policies and procedures. Policies are key tools for governing bodies to use in carrying out their responsibility for setting the strategic direction of the school. Policies provide the framework for the way in which the school should be run. Some are required in order to comply with government legislation, such as Health and Safety, and others govern internal management of the school. Our policies and procedures are the foundations on which we build our school. This comprehensive set of guidelines enables children, staff, governors and parents to work together to benefit the learning potential of each child.
