School Policies

GDPR- Meadowfield Primary School has here published the staff/volunteers and pupils/parents privacy notices (see bottom of page) in with GDPR requirements as of May 2018. We have an ICT policy, a data protection policy, a social media policy and a photograph policy here as well, all agreed by the Governing Board in summer 2018.  Training was delivered to key employees and further training materials were distributed before May 2018. An information audit has been completed by the school and will be reviewed annually. Our Data Protection Officer is Dave Noble,
Charging Policy

Where possible, we take children on educational visits to aid their learning. Sometimes, there may be a charge for the cost of transport or entry to a site, such as a museum. Where there is a charge for the visit, we may ask for a contribution towards the costs from parent/carers. This contribution is voluntary although if not enough money is collected, it may mean the cancellation of the trip. The policy is attached below.
Special Educational Needs and Disabilities
This policy includes details of the assess, plan, do review system for SEND and a detailed guide to supporting children with Dyslexia (SpLD) and well as other SEND needs.
Please see the SEND section on the website for more details about provision at Meadowfield.
Behaviour and Anti Bullying
Good behaviour is vital to ensure good teaching and learning at any school. Meadowfield is a restorative school where we nurture relationships to ensure that every child has a voice.
At Meadowfield, we have very effective strategies to reward and celebrate good behaviour. We also work with the children to create a positive environment where they make positive behaviour choices.
We feel it is essential to work alongside pupils and parents to ensure that children meet the high expectations set by the school.
Anti Bullying Policy
The school has a very strong anti-bullying policy. We do not tolerate any bullying at the school and work hard to ensure that we stay bully free. On the rare occasions when bullying does occur, we deal with it swiftly and firmly, and fully involve the parents/carers of all the children involved. The anti-bullying policy is available to download below.
Complaints Policy
This sets out the Academy Trust and school’s approach to dealing with parental concerns and complaints. Further details of how we handle them are contained in our complaints procedures policy which you can obtain on request from the school office or download below.
Race Equality Policy
This policy outlines our commitment to equality for all regardless of race and how we deal with racism in all of its forms; it includes our preventative curriculum and our responsive approaches.
