School policies


Bedwell School, like all other schools and most organisations, has a wide range of policies which explain the way that we organise ourselves and do things. 

These govern everything from behaviour to uniform to maths teaching, and are renewed periodically (depending on the policy, this can range from annually to every 3 years). Some of these (particularly those dealing with staffing and safeguarding) are based on nationally or locally agreed models. Othes (particularly those covering teaching and the curriculum) are much more specifc to our school ethos, values and community. However they are written, however, they all have to be reviewed and agreed by our school governors - head here to find out more about who they are.

Links to pdf versons of all our polices can be found below. Paper copies can be obtained via the school office - for contact details, check here
