Our policies are reviewed by staff and governors annually, but throughout the school year we draft changes and some may be refined in school to improve our performance.  Changes will be made on paper copies in school, pending publication on the website after the annual review.  Major changes and updates will be signposted in the newsletter.

If you would like a paper copy of any of the policies, or would like to discuss any of the information contained within, please contact the school office.
