As a college we try to ensure consistency and continuity in our practice. We operate a number of college policies which are regularly reviewed and updated to take into account current guidance and emerging legislation.

For ease of reference, key policies can be downloaded from this page:

 

GDPR

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into effect on 25 May 2018.  With it comes higher standards for handling data and greater expectations for improved transparency, enhanced data security and increased accountability for processing personal data.  Schools have a legal duty to comply with GDPR.

GDPR brings a new responsibility to inform individuals about how and why we use any personal data.  We comply with this right by providing ‘privacy notices’ to individuals where we are processing their personal data.

Equality Objectives Statement

Be happy, Be ambitious, Make a difference

Our equality objectives are:

  • To promote spiritual, moral, social and cultural development through all appropriate curricular and extra-curricular opportunities .  We aim to meet this objective with particular reference to issues of equality and diversity.
  • To reduce prejudice and increase understanding of equality through direct teaching across the curriculum.
  • To move beyond deterministic notions of fixed ability and to model teaching and learning behaviours that avoid labelling.
  • To promote cultural development and understanding through a rich range of experience, both in and beyond the school.
  • To eradicate prejudice related bullying in relation to the protected characteristics listed in the Equality Act 2010.
  • To tackle prejudice and promote understanding in relation to people with disabilities.
