School Policies

The Governing Body has policies for all aspects of school life. Paper copies of the policies below can be requested from the school offices, or PDF files can be sent via email on request.

A selection of policies are also available below, with the date the policy was last updated in parentheses.

Please note that the school’s Values and Vision will be amended on each policy when they reach their review dates.  This will mean that some policies will show the old vision and values for a period of time.
