Lawn Primary School Policies and Procedures
School policies cover every aspect of school life. Below are some of our most important policies for your reference. If you would like a paper copy of any documents please ask the school office. For details of our use of the Pupil Premium Grant and Sports Premium Funding, please click on the corresponding tabs to the right.
Policies address the practical implications of how to achieve the schools vision and are a key means of ensuring that agreed values underpin the 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 Lawn are intended to guide the work of the Headteacher and the staff to provide a framework for the smooth functioning of our school, based on a shared understanding of the schools strategic plan and vision.
I have split the policies into 5 categories:
Statutory policies - covering major strategic areas required by law, as stated by the Government's Statutory Policies for Schools document (January 2020)
Discretionary Policies - additional policies covering additional areas, not covered by law
Curriculum policies - policies on specific subject areas of the curriculum. these are all discretionary
Governor Policies - compulsory policies and guidance directly related to school governance
Safeguarding - Lawn Primary School is committed to Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. We have a number of policies and procedures in place that contribute to our Safeguarding Policy which can be viewed in the Statutory Policies and Safeguarding section of this page.
Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a child's welfare. We will ensure that our concerns are discussed with his/her parent's/carer's first, unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child's welfare.
We actively support the Governments Prevent Agenda to counter radicalism and extremism.
Our Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) is Mrs Williams (Welfare Manager). Our Deputy Safeguarding Lead is Mrs Wilson (Headteacher)
