School Policies

Admissions Arrangements

Warwickshire Local Authority is the responsible of admissions in community schools such as Clinton. Here is further information.

Anti-Bullying Policy

The aim of the anti-bullying policy is to ensure that pupils learn in a supportive, caring and safe environment without fear of being bullied, and that staff are free from fear of bullying by pupils.

Attendance Policy

Attendance at school is vital for academic and social success. This policy explains how we hope that parents will work with us to maximise children’s potential through excellent attendance.

Behaviour Policy

At Clinton Primary School, a consistent policy for acceptable behaviour is important, so that children have a framework within which they can develop and learn, in a secure environment. The policy is designed to be clear to children, staff, parents and governors, and to encourage a collective commitment to establishing and maintaining good behaviour in the school.

Calculation Policy

It is crucial that children learn to calculate through a consistent step by step approach. This policy is extremely clear and useful for school staff and parents to use to ensure children become confident with their calculation methods.

Charging and Remissions Policy

The purpose of the policy is to ensure that there is clarity over those items which the school will provide free of charge and for those items where there may be a charge.

Child Protection and Safeguarding policy

The governors and staff of Clinton Primary School fully recognise the contribution it makes to safeguarding children. We know that all staff, including volunteers, have a full and active part to play in protecting our pupils from harm.

Collective Worship

Each day there is an act of collective worship. This policy explains the legal implications for collective worship and how we work within those.

Complaints Procedure

We are very keen to work with parents to make our school the best it can be. If you have any feedback you want to give or wish to raise any concerns, please do speak to class teachers at the first opportunity. If you feel your concerns are not being addressed appropriately then please speak to the Headteacher or another member of the leadership team. This procedure provides guidelines if you wish to make a formal complaint.

Enabling children to calculate, reason with number, understand the mathematical world around them is an important aim at Clinton. This policy describes how maths teaching happens in the school.

Medical Conditions at School Policy

This school understands that it has a responsibility to make the school welcoming and supportive to pupils with medical conditions who currently attend and to those who may enrol in the future. We aim to provide all children with all medical conditions the same opportunities as others at school.

Relationships and Sex Education Policy

Effective relationships and sex education is key in supporting young people through their physical, emotional and moral development, enabling them to make informed life choices confidently, and furthering their respect for themselves and others as they move through life. This requires a school wide approach, growing children’s knowledge, skills and attitudes from reception through to year 6. This policy outlines Clinton’s approach.

Responsible Internet Use

All pupils at Clinton Primary School use computer facilities, including Internet access, as an essential part of learning, as required by the National Curriculum.

SEND Policy

Educational inclusion in Clinton means removing barriers and building bridges to learning across the curriculum and in the whole range of learning, play and leisure activities to increase participation for all.

Single Equality Scheme

Our vision has at its heart a sense of togetherness with appreciation of diversity inherent in that. We aim to inspire all children to reach their potential within a community built upon strong relationships. We are committed to ensuring equality of education and opportunity for all pupils, staff, parents and carers receiving services from the school, irrespective of race, gender, disability, faith, religion or socio-economic background.
