School Handbook & Policies

Thank you for visiting our page of School Policies.

We are involving children, parents and staff to evaluate and update our policies and practices.  Please do respond to surveys, questionnaires and/or feedback sheets so that your contributions can be valued and included.

We will post more policies up here as and when they are updated.

Many thanks for your continued support.
