WHAT IS A SCHOOL POLICY?
“An effective policy should provide a sound basis upon which more detailed actions and plans can be layered. It should give members of staff an indication of what their role might be in implementing it. Most importantly it should provide a united approach that distinguishes your school.” National Association of Headteachers
By setting the various goals and assigning the proper authorities that enable school governance and management, school policies make clear to staff, students, parents and the community exactly what educators are accountable for. School policy helps professionals govern in an orderly fashion. Since every school policy affects a child’s education, each decision that is made is carefully considered by the relevant Governing Body.
The Wensum Trust
The Wensum Trust is accountable for all policies across its Academies, which will be written and implemented in line with its ethos and values. We believe that education is far broader and deeper than the national curriculum and examination programmes of study. Important as these are, we want our students to strive to gain experiences that will develop their personality and make them ready for a 21st Century technological and multicultural society.
A Scheme of Delegation sets out the responsibilities of the HHS Local Governing Body and Heads of School, who are responsible for the implementation of all policies.
The policies listed on the right are divided into those which relate to all the schools in the Wensum Trust, and those delegated to the HHS Local Governing Body.
all our policies are reviewed for equality impact assessment. If you need a hard copy of any policy, or need a different format or language, please contact the school.
