Policies

School policies cover every aspect of school life. Below are some of our most important policies for your reference. If you want to know our policy on something that is not listed, please ask the school office.

E-Safety at St Michael's

At St Michael’s C E Primary School we recognise that the education of pupils in e-safety is an essential part of the school’s provision. Children and young people need the help and support of the school to recognise and avoid e-safety risks and build their resilience. E-safety not only includes Internet technologies but also electronic communications via mobile phones, games consoles and wireless technology.

We have an e-safety policy and procedures in place for recording and investigating any incidents that might arise. The children are taught t e-safety issues through the curriculum.

Please find below some links and guidance for parents and carers to help their children stay safe:
