Here at Stoke Park, we have a number of policies in place to ensure the school runs as smoothly, safely and fairly as possible.
We assume that all students will be in school each day. Full attendance is crucial in maintaining continuity. Students who miss sessions often find it difficult to pick up from where they left off and can easily fall behind. There may, however, be occasions where absence is unavoidable.
Please view information about Holidays during term time.
The Governing Body of Stoke Park School issues this policy statement in respect of charges and remissions.
The policy statement is based on guidance issued by the DfE, entitled “Charging for School Activities”.
Please view our Charging and Remissions policy for more information.
Stoke Park School has a Child Protection Policy in place to help us govern child protection issues in school and at home. For details of how we administer child protection and safeguarding at Stoke Park, please click here to view our Child Protection Policy.
For issues regarding Child Protection, please contact Caroline Kirk, Assistant Head Teacher.
As part of the school's ICT program, students have access to computers with internet access and a variety of software programs to aid them in their studies. Students need to be aware of the dangers of internet usage, and need to have filled in an internet usage permission form (on the linked pdf).
Students are responsible for providing themselves with the basic equipment needed for school. Normally students should not bring valuable items into school. If this does prove necessary then they should leave the item with a teacher for safe keeping until needed.

It is imperative that we have an E-Safety policy in place to oversee what staff and students would adhere to when accessing this information electronically. Please view our E-Safety Policy for further information.

Homework enhances student learning, improves achievement and develops students's study skills and as such is an integral part of the
curriculum. It requires careful planning and integration into the scheme of work of each curriculum area. Homework is work that is set to be done outside the timetabled curriculum.

Since 2010, when the Government published the Prevent Strategy, there
has been an awareness of the specific need to safeguard children, young
people and families from violent extremism. There have been several
occasions both locally and nationally in which extremist groups have
attempted to radicalise vulnerable children and young people to hold
extreme views including views justifying political, religious, sexist or
racist violence, or to steer them into a rigid and narrow ideology that
