An effective whole school child protection policy is one which provides clear direction to staff and others about expected codes of behaviour in dealing with child protection issues.  An effective policy also makes explicit the school’s commitment to the development of good practice and sound procedures.  This ensures that child protection concerns and referrals may be handled sensitively, professionally and in ways which prioritise the needs of the child.

Charging and Remissions PolicyThe school’s charging and remissions policy complies with statutory requirements, has regard to the Authority’s policy statements on charging and is reviewed on an annual basis.  The Governing Body recognises the valuable contribution that the wide range of additional activities makes towards the children’s personal and social development eg local trips, visitors, hatching eggs, trips to museums and residential experiences. The Governing Body aims to promote and provide such activities as part of a broad and balanced curriculum for the children.  Furthermore, we believe that all our children should have an equal opportunity to benefit from school activities and visits (curricular and extra-curricular) independent of their parents’ financial means.
