Every school has policies and procedures which define how it should be run. Some policies are statutory, whilst others are at the Governing Body’s discretion. Policies are usually reviewed and approved by Governors via one of the two sub-Committees – Learning & Development and Finance & Resources – or delegated to the Headteacher.
