Our School Policies
Parents or carers and children will attend an initial meeting with the school admissions
officer to discuss school policies and procedures. A visit to the child’s new classroom
and an agreed upon start date will be agreed during the admission meeting.
Attendance & Punctuality Policy
To encourage all pupils to achieve their maximum potential. To recognise and reward
pupils who achieve more than 96% attendance during the school year. Encourage parents/
carers to play the vital role in supporting the school and encouraging their child
to reach good attendance levels.
At Hucklow we believe the role of computers is as a medium for social interaction
both within and eventually between schools. Computing plays an important role in
the children’s lives and in society today.
Equality Statement Policy
Our equality sets out our approach to meeting the general and specific requirements
of the public sector duty for our school as outlined by the Equality Act 2010.
At Hucklow Primary School, all staff recognise that we have a shared responsibility to help keep children and young people safe by contributing to providing a safe environment for children to learn in and identifying children who are suffering or likely to suffer significant harm, and taking appropriate action with the aim of making sure they are kept safe both at home and school.
Term Time Leave Statement
Parents/ Carers are actively discouraged from taking their child on leave during
school term time either in this country or abroad.
At Hucklow we do our best to deal with incidents of bullying behaviour. Incidents
are investigated and logged. Children in difficulty are closely monitored.
Positively encourage all pupils to choose to behave correctly at all times, to be
fully engaged in their learning and understand their roles in making school a safe
and secure environment for all.
Online Safety Policy
Online Safety encompasses Internet technologies and electronic communications
such as mobile phones and wireless technology. It highlights the need to educate
children and young people about the benefits and risks of using new technology.
Positive Handling Policy
Staff at school are trained to look after the children in their care. Staff have
a duty to intervene in order to prevent pupils from hurting themselves or others.
If a member of staff ever needs to intervene physically they will follow the school’s
positive handling policy.
Special Educational Needs Policy
We have an inclusive ethos with high expectations and suitable targets, a broad and
balanced curriculum for all children and systems for early identification of barriers
to learning and participation.
