Policies and documents.

We have a range of policies, statements and documents which we use to guide the effective operation of the school.  Some of them appear in specific parts of the website related to the area in which they apply (for example, see the “Curriculum and assessment” tab for our curriculum policy and our assessment policy, or our “Attendance” tab for our attendance policy, and so on).  In this section, we have tried to capture other documents that may be useful or that explain in a transparent and accountable way how we operate in the academy.  Some of these documents are statutory, some we put on because we think they are useful to our stakeholders.

As we are part of the South Essex Academy Trust, there are a number of policies that apply to all of the academies in the Trust.  They are listed separately below, along with Trust meeting minutes.
