School Policies, SEN&D and Safeguarding Portfolio
Policies are the method by which our Governing Body communicates its aims and objectives to staff, parents and pupils. They are the framework for decision-making and action. Policies and procedural documents are reviewed by the Senior Leadership Team and the Governing Body according to a regular rolling programme. Please see the links to current policies below, or contact Mrs Rowlatt if you require further information. All policies and procedures are available as paper copies on request.
If your child is poorly: Contact the school office before 9.30am. If your child has been sick or has diarrhoea, they should stay off school for 48 hours to reduce the risk of infection spreading. Please see guidance from the Health Protection Agency (HPA) on exclusion periods for common illnesses.
All our statutory policies are amended from DCC/Local Authority guidance

Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEN&D):
Supporting each and every child within our Federation is of the utmost importance to us. Occasionally some children need a little extra help to meet their needs.
Our experienced staff are supported by Mrs J Poyser, our Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Coordinator (SENDCO). Mrs Poyser's role is to work alongside parents, pupils, staff and outside agencies in order to ensure that the needs of the all pupils are addressed.
Our policy for supporting children with special educational needs can be found on our School Policies page. If you have any concerns about your child please do not hesitate to talk with your class teacher.
As part of the Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) Reforms, all local authorities were required to publish a Local Offer. This sets out in one place information about education, health and social care provision for children and young people in their area who have SEN or are disabled.
You can access Derbyshire County Council's Local Offer at http://www.derbyshiresendlocaloffer.org/
