SAFEGUARDING & CHILD PROTECTION

This Child Protection Policy sets out how we discharge our statutory responsibilities. It forms part of a suite of policies and procedures developed and operated by the school with a view to safeguarding and promoting welfare of children in the broadest meaning, namely protecting children from maltreatment, preventing impairment of health and/or development, ensuring that children grow up in the provision of safe and effective care and taking action to enable all children to have the best life chances.

COMPLAINTS POLICY

The Nursery School’s values are concerned with meeting the needs of pupils, parents and others who have a stake in the school. This includes the staff, members of the local community and the Local Authority. The governing body believes that constant feedback is an important ingredient in self-improvement and raising standards. People, whether they be pupils or adults, who have concerns or complaints should feel that they can be voiced and will be considered seriously. All complainants have the right to be accompanied when making the complaint, and pupils may be accompanied by a parent or another adult.

SEND POLICY

All children are treated as individuals. The teacher and staff plan an appropriate differentiated curriculum to ensure high quality teaching and learning with effective support and resources. Pupils are assessed using entry assessments, observations, well-being and involvement levels and EYFS profiles. Where a child appears not to be making progress either generally or in a specific aspect of learning, the teacher will take steps to provide different opportunities or alternative approaches to be used

SUPPORTING PUPILS WITH MEDICAL CONDITIONS POLICY

Local Authorities and schools have a responsibility for the health and safety of pupils in their care. The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 makes employers responsible for the health and safety of employees and anyone else on the premises. In the case of pupils with special medical needs, the responsibility of the employer is to make sure that safety measures cover the needs of all pupils at the school.

CHARGING & REMISSION POLICY

Hillview Nursery School believes that all our pupils should have an equal opportunity to benefit from school activities and visits (curricular and extra curricular) independent of their parents’ financial means. This charging and remissions policy describes how we will do our best to ensure a wide range of visits and activities is offered and, at the same time, try to minimise the financial barriers which may prevent some pupils taking full advantage of the opportunities.

Hillview Nursery School is a welcoming school where everyone is valued highly and where tolerance, honesty, co-operation and mutual respect for others are fostered. We are committed to the development of the whole person within a supportive, secure and creative environment. A broad, balanced and appropriate curriculum provides equal opportunity for all pupils to maximise their potential, regardless of race, disability, gender, gender reassignment, age, pregnancy and maternity, marital status, religion, belief and sexual orientation. We endeavour to promote positive relationships with parents, governors and members of the wider community.

BRITISH VALUES

We are an inclusive setting and our ethos and curriculum enables children to be independent learners, to make choices and to build strong relationships with their peers and all adults. Our setting believes that children flourish best when their personal,

social and emotional needs are met and where there are clear and developmentally appropriate expectations for their behaviour. We would challenge pupils, staff or parents who expressed opinions contrary to fundamental British values

This policy will discourage undesirable behaviours by showing their non-benefits and possible sanctions that will follow. This policy has been agreed in consultation with staff, children and governors and reflects the values and principles that are important in the school.

BEHAVIOUR POLICY

The ethos at Hillview Nursery School is to respect and value each child and their family as individuals. All the children are encouraged to learn through play in groups and individual activities. Within the Nursery School environment we have clear boundaries and expectations for all the children to work towards. Our behaviour policy is based on respecting the children’s individuality. When dealing with children’s behaviour we take into consideration the behavioural differences that come from cultural and religious backgrounds and the different learning styles and behaviour of boys and girls.
