St Michael’s School has a range of policies in place which help to determine the ways in which the school deals with various issues. Their purpose is to try and ensure that everything is done fairly and that school life runs as smoothly and predictably as possible for everyone involved in the school, especially our children.
The Governing Body is responsible for ensuring that the school has the appropriate policies in place and that the school works within them. Some policies are required by law (e.g. our behaviour policy); others are there to help us all to manage expectations in particular situations.
We are currently compiling a portfolio of electronic copies of all our agreed policies and these will be added to this page as time goes on. In the meantime, there are links to some of the most relevant policies for parents below (please click on the relevant policy name to see a pdf of the policy). If there are any other policies which you would like to see here, please let us know.
