School Policies

School policies are reviewed by the Governing Body according to the School’s Long Term Plan. Some policies are based on Lancashire Local Authority guidance and updates and information produced by the Department for Education. The Governors operate a clear plan on when policies will be checked and updated but when the need arises, policies can be updated at any time. We will endeavour to ensure that all policies posted on the website will be the most up to date versions.
