Policies

Our policies are the guidelines, principles and rules that we develop to achieve the goals in our mission statement.

(A downloadable set of all policies is listed at the bottom of this page.)

Our key policies include:

Behaviour and Discipline Policy

Extract from the policy document:

It is a primary aim of our school that every member of the school community feels valued and respected, and that each person is treated fairly and well. We are a caring community, whose values are built on mutual trust and respect for all. The school behaviour policy is therefore designed to support the way in which all members of the school can live and work together in a supportive way. It aims to promote an environment set firmly within a clearly understood code of conduct, where everyone feels happy, safe and secure. Post COVID-19 lockdown there is an increased emphasis on all stakeholders conducting themselves in a manner that promotes safety and good health and well-being of all. This includes pupils remaining in their class bubbles from the start of the school year in line with the government guidance to schools. (CRC Article 19: You have the right to be protected from being hurt and mistreated in body or mind)

The school has a number of school rules, but the primary aim of the behaviour policy is not a system to enforce rules. It is a means of promoting good relationships, so that people can work together with the common purpose of helping everyone to learn. This policy supports the school community in aiming to allow everyone to work together in an effective and considerate way. (CRC Article 28: You have the right to a good quality education. You should be encouraged to go to school to the highest level you can).

The school expects every member of the school community to behave in a considerate way towards others. This is endorsed as a Rights Respecting School.

We treat all children fairly and apply this behaviour policy in a consistent way.

This policy aims to help children to grow in a safe and secure environment, and to become positive, responsible and increasingly independent members of the school community.

The school rewards good behaviour, as it believes that this will develop an ethos of kindness and co-operation. This policy is designed to promote good behaviour, rather than merely deter anti-social behaviour.

Special Needs Policy

Extract from the policy document:

At Kenmore Park Infant & Nursery School (KPINS), we work in the belief that all children are entitled access to a broad and balanced curriculum which is relevant to their needs. We respond positively to the diversity of the pupils in our school, and aim to create a caring learning environment which takes account of each child’s language, identity and cultural background. (CRC Article 30 – Every child has the right to learn and use the language, customs and religion of their family, whether or not these are shared by the majority of the people in the country where they live). All of the children in our care are unique, and any child could be vulnerable at some point in their school life. We are prepared to respond positively to the individual needs of each child, providing appropriate support that will help pupils achieve to their potential.

Every Teacher is a Teacher of every child including those with SEN. Quality-first teaching is expected.

Our school provides a focus on outcomes for children and we are determined to work in partnership with parents for the best interests of the child. (CRC Article 29 – Education must develop every child’s personality, talents and abilities to the full).

Equal Opportunities Policy

Extract from the policy document:

We believe in the need to eliminate unlawful discrimination and to promote equality of opportunity in all that we do.  We recognise the rich diversity of Harrow’s population as strength and we aim to treat all people with dignity and respect whilst recognising the value of each individual and the positive contribution they make to Harrow’s diverse community and workforce.

Equal Opportunities Policy September 2021

Charging Policy

All education during school hours is free. We do not charge for any activity undertaken as part of the National Curriculum with the exception of group music tuition.

When organising school trips, visits or visitors into school (Theatre groups) which enrich the curriculum and educational experience of the children, the school invites parents to voluntarily contribute to the cost of the activity. All contributions are voluntary. If we do not receive sufficient voluntary contributions we may need to cancel the activity. If the activity goes ahead, it will include children whose parents have not paid any contribution. We do not treat these children differently from any others.

Charging Policy September 2021

Accessibility Plan

Extract from the document:

To reduce and, where possible, eliminate barriers to accessing the curriculum and to full participation for pupils, and prospective pupils, with a disability.

(Article 23: you have right to special education and care if you have a disability, as well as all the rights in this Convention, so that you can live a full life).

Accessibility Plan September 2021

Parental Complaints Procedure

Extract from the document:

We want our pupils to do well and feel happy at school. However, we do recognise that, on occasions, concerns or difficulties do arise. In this event, parents/carers are encouraged to contact the school to have any difficulties or concerns resolved at the earliest possible stage. By taking such matters seriously the school aims to develop a working relationship with parents/carers and to reduce the number of formal complaints. (Article 1: Everyone under 18 has rights listed in the UNCRC).

Parental Complaints Procedure September 2021

Child Protection Policy

Extract from the document:

This Child Protection Policy forms part of a suite of documents and policy statements which relate to the safeguarding responsibilities of our school. It is an expectation of statutory guidance that every school will have a Child Protection Policy and will review it annually. It is available to pupils and parents on the school website. This policy should be read in conjunction with the school’s policies on Safer Recruitment, Behaviour/Anti-Bullying and Staff Conduct.

Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy September 2021 

Relationship Education Policy

Extract from the policy document:

The following policy refers to the Relationships Education curriculum content and delivery at Kenmore Park Infant and Nursery School.

Definition:

Relationships Education involves learning about caring and positive friendships, families and people who care for me, respectful relationships, online relationships, being safe, identifying changes as they grow.

Relationships Education contributes to the foundation of Personal, Social & Health Education (PSHE) and Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural (SMSC) development and offers a valuable vehicle for promoting equality between individuals and groups. It involves an exploration of human and social diversity, and a fostering of self-worth whilst recognising, accepting and respecting differences.

Relationships Education is taught as an integral part of the school’s PSHE provision throughout the school from Reception to Year 2. In this way, children are able to develop their ideas, knowledge and skills gradually as part of a spiral curriculum.

Relationship Education Policy June 2021

Early Years and Foundation Stage Policy

The Foundation Stage applies to children from three years of age to the end of the reception year. The Foundation Stage is important in its own right, and in preparing children for later schooling.
