Policies

The Firs Lower School Policies

This represents some of our key documents and policies, other policies are available from the school office on request.

Equality Duty

It is a fundamental belief, at the core of our values, that everyone is equally important and special. It is therefore a central part of our vision for The Firs, that everyone in our community is treated equally and fairly . This is set out in our Equality Policy which you can find below, along with our Equality Objectives.

Behaviour Policy

The way we approach behaviour management is a fundamental element of our core values at The Firs. We are very passionate about creating a caring family atmosphere at our school and providing consistent, fair and well understood behaviour guidance, is a key part of ensuring children feel happy and safe. Our behaviour policy is available below and you can find out more by visiting our Managing Behaviour web page which is under the 'Our Learning' tab.

Within the Behaviour Policy there is information about our policy for the use of exclusion (which is a statutory requirement).
