At Springhill Academy all our systems and procedures and ways of working, including teaching and learning are covered by detailed policies which are designed to secure consistency across the school and provide relevant information to all interested parties, in particular parents and carers.

The school is required by law to develop and implement certain statutory policies covering such areas as safeguarding children’s welfare, health and safety, special educational needs and disability discrimination. These policies are reviewed regularly and are all agreed and ratified by the Governing Body.

The school’s approach to teaching is laid out in our Teaching and Learning Policy and each subject area has its own section of the policy which outlines how we teach the subject, what is taught and the different methods that we might use.

All policies formally ratified on Monday 12th December 2016
