Each ESF school is responsible for writing and regularly reviewing its own set of policies covering all aspects of the school’s life, routines and procedures.
Policies are informative, working documents which aim to establish excellence in procedures and practice and which educate and empower those that work within the organisation.
On each policy document, the date of the most recent review and the date of the next scheduled review will be recorded so that no policy becomes out of date.
To view a particular policy, please select the required link below. This will open the policy document:
