At Hillyfield all our systems and procedures and ways of working, including teaching and learning are covered by detailed policies which are designed to secure consistency across the school and provide relevant information to all interested parties, in particular parents and carers.
The school is required by law to develop and implement certain statutory policies covering such areas as safeguarding children's welfare, health and safety, special educational needs, disability discrimination etc. These policies are reviewed regularly and are all agreed and ratified by the Governing Body.
The school's approach to teaching is laid out in our Teaching and Learning Policy and each subject area has its own policy which outlines how we teach the subject, what is taught and the different methods that we might use. The policy also details how much time we spend teaching the subject and who is responsible in school for co-ordinating the school.
There are several policies that are very important to keeping children safe and we ask parents to pay particular attention to these policies. At the moment we are really promoting children’s safety online both at school and at home so we would ask everyone to take time to read our esafety policy which can be accessed opposite.
N.B. We are currently updating our policies, if you require any of our new policies, please contact the school directly. The updated ones will be uploaded here very soon for you to view.
