Policies and Procedures
Hadley Wood Policies and Procedures
School policies cover every aspect of school life. Below are some of our most important policies for your reference. If you want to know our policy on something that is not listed, or paper copies of any documents please ask the school office. For details of our use of the Pupil Premium Grant and Sports Premium Funding, please click on the Key Information tab above.
Policies address the practical implications of how to achieve the school's vision and are a key means of ensuring that agreed values underpin day-to-day decisions and actions in our school. They are concerned with key processes within school and are about interactions between school, pupils, parents and community. They are about ensuring highly effective teaching and learning, about safety and about basic human rights.
All policies at Hadley Wood are intended to guide the work of the Head Teacher and the staff to provide a framework for the smooth functioning of our school based in a shared understanding of the school's strategic plan and vision.
We have two categories of Policy:
Statutory - covering major strategic areas required by law, as stated by the Government's Statutory Policies for Schools document (November 2019)
Discretionary - additional school policies covering additional areas, not required by law.
Our policies are reviewed annually or bi-annually. Each policy is written by the School Leadership Team and ratified by the Governing Body.
Our Statutory policies can be seen below and some of our most important discretionary policies are also shared on this page.
