Schools are required to have a range of policies recommended by the Government’s Department for Education. Some policies are mandatory whilst others are recommended and are good practice.
Policies are created in a number of ways. This would include considering the model policy put together by the local authority or regulatory bodies, by consultation with staff and parents/carers and students as appropriate and by discussion and ratification at Governor meetings.
Policies are reviewed on a regular basis and the updated versions will be added to the website.
