Policies Available to Download
In order to make sure that we are consistently professional and are doing our very best for our pupils, staff and all members of our school community we have School Policies guiding virtually every aspect of how we do things in our School. These Policies are available for you to read in this section and they are also available to download. If you cannot find the policy you require, it may be in the process of being updated. Policies are living, working documents and are therefore updated every few years to reflect the changing ways in which we do things.

St Mary’s SEN Policy
At St Marys C.E. Primary School, we believe that every teacher is a teacher of every child, including those with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND). This policy draws upon duties conferred by the “SEN Code of Practice 2014” which sets out the statutory guidance for organisations who work with and support children and young people with SEND. St Mary’s is committed to ensuring that quality teaching is provided for all children including those who require additional support to help them achieve educational success.
St Mary’s Behaviour Policy
St Mary’s has a positive approach to classroom management and celebration of achievement as we feel this is the most effective way of approaching any behaviour management system. We firmly believe that the encouragement of high standards of behaviour is crucial in the development of a positive and successful learning environment. St Mary’s is following a values based educational approach to learning and behaviour. Our shared value vocabulary was agreed in consultation with governors, children, parents and staff. All stakeholders are committed to and have contributed to this process. It is our aim to raise standards by promoting a school ethos which is underpinned by our core values because the school believes that teaching about positive human values e.g. respect, honesty, compassion, care, humility and responsibility will improve the quality of education and behaviour of our children. Through our school values and behaviour policy, we aim to teach our children to be considerate, resilient and self-disciplined individuals within school and in the wider community.
