Policy Documents

For Safeguarding policies and guidance please see the separate main heading of Safeguarding

This page holds our key policy documents which include:

 The School's SEND Policy and Information Report are in the Parent Information Section 

Anti-bullying Policy

It is a government requirement that all schools have an anti-bullying policy. In 2003, Ofsted published Bullying: Effective Action in Secondary Schools. This was followed by DfES guidance for schools under two headings: Don't Suffer in Silence and Bullying – A Charter for Action. This policy reflects this guidance and the principles enshrined in ‘Every Child Matters’.

DfES guidance defines bullying as actions that are meant to be hurtful, and which happen on a regular basis. Bullying can be direct (either physical or verbal) or indirect (e.g. being ignored or not spoken to).

Attendance Policy

Regular and punctual school attendance is important. Pupils need to attend school regularly if they are to take full advantage of the educational opportunities available to them by law. Kislingbury Primary School fully recognises its responsibilities to ensure pupils are in school and on time, therefore having access to learning for the maximum number of days and hours.

Behaviour and Discipline Policy

It is a primary aim of our school that every member of the school community feels valued and respected, and that each person is treated fairly and well. We are a caring community, whose values are built on mutual trust and respect for all. The school's behaviour policy is therefore designed to support the way in which all members of the school can live and work together in a supportive way. It aims to promote an environment in which everyone feels happy, safe and secure.

Charging Policy

All the education we provide during normal school hours is at no charge to pupils. We do not charge for any activity undertaken as part of the National Curriculum, with the exception of some individual or small-group music tuition.

Collective Worship Policy

We understand worship to be a special act or occasion whose purpose is to show reverence to God. It is at the centre of our school life and integral to all that we do as a school. Collective worship involves all members of the school family coming together and participating in an act of worship. We expect everyone to take an active part in the worships during the week.
