School Policies

School Policies are written and agreed with the staff and the Governing Body on a regular basis. Some policies are based on Cumbria County Council guidance and updates and information produced by the Department for Education. The Governors operate a clear plan on when policies will be checked and updated but when the need arises, policies can be updated at any time. We will endeavour to ensure that all policies posted on the website will be the most up to date versions.

Some of the acronyms used in policies and their meanings:

CP Child Protection EYFS Early Years Foundation Stage (Pre-School, Nursery and Reception)
HLTA Higher Level Teaching Assistant KS1 Key Stage 1 (Infants)
KS2 Key Stage 2 (Juniors) SEND Special Educational Needs and Disability
TA Teaching Assistant FGB Full Governing Body

There are two Governing Body committees, besides the Full Governing Body Committee, who may review policies on behalf of the FGB. These are the Curriculum and Standards Committee and the Finance and Resources Committee (who also look at Staffing and Health & Safety).
