School policies cover every aspect of school life and our policies describe explicitly how we do things at Vine Tree Primary. They address the practical implications of how we achieve our school vision and ensure that our agreed values underpin day-to-day decisions and actions in school. They are concerned with key processes within school and are about the interactions between staff, pupils, parents, governors and our local community.
Some policies are statutory and required by law, while others are discretionary and cover additional areas. Many of our policies are based on model versions provided by the Local Authority; others we build from scratch to reflect what we believe to be best practice. All of them are carefully considered and regularly reviewed by staff and governors before being adopted.
Below are some of our most important policies for your reference. Click on the links to read individual policies and as usual, if there’s anything you can't find or you have any queries about please contact the school and we’ll be happy to help.
We have 3 categories of Policy:
- Statutory - covering major strategic areas required by law.
- Discretionary - additional policies covering additional areas, not required by law.
- Curriculum - policies on specific subject areas of the curriculum. These are all discretionary. Our Statutory policies can be seen below and some of our most important discretionary policies are also shared on this page.
