There are many elements of school life that require effective management through the formulation of policies and procedures. School's are obliged to follow certain protocols as set by the Local Authority as well as statutory regulations set by the Department for Education.
We therefore operate many policies in school to clearly set out our processes, aims and objectives. Whilst we conduct our own internal review of policy on an annual basis, not all policies require annual update and this is identified in the table.
The Governing Body approve all Statutory policies as part of their responsibility.
The table below provide access to the most commonly requested policies; there are two categories -
Statutory (where there is a legal requirement to provide information as advised by the DfE)
Local (in-house practices which are still important but are not governed by statutory law)
