Our school has a number of policies which form the basis of many of the decisions and processes we undertake. All policies have been ratified, reviewed and revised by the school's leadership and governors to ensure that they remain accurate and effective. If a policy has lapsed then it is likely yet to be published here. Please contact the school for the revised, updated version.
