Our Policies

Since September 2016 the Board of Governors have been evaluating and updating all our school policies in light of changes to guidance from the Department of Education. A list of the policies that have been updated by the Governors can be found to the right of this page. 

Should you wish to have a copy of any of our policies or procedures, our school office will be happy to you with a copy. Please call: 028 9181 3827. Alternatively you can email Mr J Gray on .

Our policies are available to current and potential parents, interested parties and other schools who are working on any of the titles themselves.

We are always happy to help and share good practice.

Mr J Gray
