Attendance Policy

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.

E-Safety Policy

In today's age of technology, staff and students almost permanently have access to information over the internet, whether from a school device, or one of their own. 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.

Food Policy

The school aims to ensure that all aspects of food and nutrition provided during the school day promote the health and wellbeing of students, staff and visitors to our school. In delivering the policy, the school also aims to improve the health of the whole school community through the flow of information between school, students and their families.

Freedom of Information

As of January 2009, we have adopted a new policy regarding the Freedom of Information Act.

Homework Policy

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. It contains an element of independent study in that it is not usually directly supervised by a teacher. It is important in raising student achievement.

Preventing Extremism and Radicalisation Policy

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 is intolerant of diversity and leaves them vulnerable to future radicalisation.

Special Educational Needs

Uniform and Personal Property Policy
