Access for Disabled Pupils and Adults:
The school has an Accessibility Action Plan which is subject to review. This plan can be obtained from the school on request. The plan is modified in response to any issues that arise in the site, which was designed to be DDA compliant and passed an inspection as such in 2010. In 2012 a further inspection made suggestions for modification which were carried out during the 2012/13 period.
Our current Special Educational Needs and Disabilites policy SEND-POLICY-2015-6 (Click to Open)
The school regards acceptable behaviour as essential if children are to learn. A copy of the behaviour policy, which is reviewed annually by staff and parent volunteers, is available below.
The school asks for voluntary contributions towards trips and school events that are related to the curriculum. These contributions represent a proportion of the cost based on the principle that every parent pays. Where parents do not pay, this is financed from our “Pupil Premium” and is NOT levied by increasing the contributions of those that DO pay. However, if contributions were to fall considerably because too many parents choose not to pay, we might not be able to send pupils on as many interesting visits as we do at the moment.
Charging policy 2015 to 2016 can be viewed here.
Residential visits are not part of the daily curriculum and thus the school will refuse places to children whose parents do not wish to pay.
The school reserves the right to refuse to take a pupil on a trip if his/her participation may endanger the health and safety of others on the trip, or the pupil him/her self.
