Policies

We aim to be environmentally friendly by publishing policies electronically. You are free to download any of the policies on this page.

If you require a printed copy of any of our policies you are entitled to request one. You should contact Mrs Whittaker, either on the number below, using the contact form on this site, or by calling in to school in person.

Anti-bullying

Anti-Bullying Policy

We have a zero tolerance to bullying at Palterton Primary School, and we investigate all allegations of bullying. This policy defines what behaviours constitute bullying, and what happens when bullying occurs.

Behaviour

Behaviour Policy

Maintaining positive relationships and learning behaviours underpin high standards at Palterton Primary School. Our policy outlines our expectations for behaviour in our school, and how we encourage positive behaviour. It also defines the ways in which we deal with any behaviour which doesn't match our high expectations.

Charging

Charging and Remissions Policy

There are a number of activities that are provided in school where there is additional cost. The Governing Body have determined the criteria for charging parents for additional activities and for asking parents for voluntary contributions. No child will ever be denied an opportunity to participate in a chargeable activity that is related to the curriculum on the basis of parents being unable to afford a contribution.

Handling

Positive Behaviour Support (including Physical Intervention) Policy

In the very rare circumstance that physical intervention is required to prevent pupils from coming to harm authorised staff will follow this policy. Where there is a known risk of physical intervention being required, training and support is provided by Derbyshire County Council (DCC). This policy is adopted from DCC and has been adapted to be specific to our school.

SEND 2014

Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Policy - 2014
