Schools write Policies to document their approach to specific areas of focus, such as Attendance or Behaviour. Well written policies are focused on continuous improvement and document what the school is working on to improve the outcome for children. Some policies are Statutory which means we have to have them in place by law and the others are determined by the school.
Statement of Intent
It is the school’s intention to be wholly inclusive and supportive of all children regardless of any special educational need, disability or disadvantage to ensure that every child makes progress in their learning towards realising their potential. We will endeavour to do our best, and to make all reasonable adjustments within our power, to meet each child’s personal learning needs and to ensure that children with special educational needs, disabilities or disadvantage make progress in their learning that is in line with children without.
Goudhurst & Kilndown CEP School is a community and all those directly connected (staff, governors, parents, families and pupils) have an essential role to play in making it safe and secure. We recognises our moral and statutory responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of all children with their best interests at the centre of our work.
We recognise the importance of providing an ethos and environment within school that will help children to feel safe, secure and respected; encourage them to talk openly; and enable them to feel confident that they will be listened to. We are alert to the signs of abuse and neglect and follow our procedures to ensure that children receive effective support, protection and justice.
Attached below are all of our policies. We will be happy to provide paper copies of any information you find useful on the website free of charge.
