Policies and Procedures

School policies cover every aspect of school life. Below are some of our most important policies for your reference. If you want to know our policy on something that is not listed, or paper copies of any documents please ask the school office.

Policies address the practical implications of how to achieve the school’s vision and are a key means of ensuring that agreed values underpin day-to-day decisions and actions in our school. They are concerned with key processes within school and are about interactions between school, pupils, parents and community.  They are about ensuring highly effective teaching and learning, about safety and about basic human rights.

All policies at Burghfield St Mary’s Primary are intended to guide the work of the Head Teacher and the staff to provide a framework for the smooth functioning of our school based in a shared understanding of the school’s strategic plan and vision.
