Below you can find a list of our key  policies. For a list of all other policies please see attached document.

Available Policies

These policies are available in the school office.


We are committed to providing a caring, friendly, and safe environment for all of our pupils so they can learn in a relaxed and secure atmosphere. Bullying of any kind is unacceptable at our school. If bullying does occur, all pupils should be able to tell and know that incidents will be dealt with promptly and effectively. We are a telling school. Anyone who knows that bullying is happening is expected to tell the staff.

Our Attendance target for this year is 95%. It is vital that children attend school regularly and consistently to ensure they make progress. Please see the enclosed documents on the importance of high attendance.
