Safely managed educational visits with a clear purpose are an indispensable part of a broad and balanced curriculum and a vibrant part of the academies within the Red Kite Learning Trust. They are an opportunity to extend pupils’ learning and enrich their appreciation and understanding of themselves, others and the world around them. They can be the catalyst for improved academic performance, contextual understanding, a lifetime interest or in some cases professional fulfilment. They are to be encouraged.
This policy provides principles, guidelines and procedures as to how Harrogate Grammar School promotes positive relationships and supports students to meet our high expectations for behaviour.
Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is everyone’s responsibility. Everyone who comes into contact with children and their families and carers has a role to play in safeguarding children. In order to fulfil this responsibility effectively, all professionals should make sure their approach is child-centred. This means that they should consider, at all times, what is in the best interests of the child. Harrogate Grammar School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of Pupils and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
This policy provides principles, guidelines and procedures about searching, screening, confiscation and restraint.
The Sex education policy outlines the aims and objectives of Harrogate Grammar School with regards to the Sex and Relationships Education (SRE) programme.
At Harrogate Grammar School we take great pride in our mission of `excellence for all’, striving for all learners to achieve their full potential – emotionally, physically, socially and academically. This is nurtured through a proactive and caring environment that promotes consistency, stability and respect for all. We want students to be resilient and persevering whatever the challenge and our support to enable them to reach this goal is unrelenting. The objective of this policy is to ensure that the governing body makes provision for vulnerable students who have SEN or those who are disabled.
Harrogate Grammar School recognises that the spiritual, moral, social and cultural element of students’ education is crucial to their development as an individual, allowing them to take their rightful place in their community as a local, national and global citizen. SMSC is about the values students are encouraged to hold, their attitude towards learning, knowledge and society.
The Policy aims are to ensure students are aware of their responsibilities in relation to drug issues (medicines, alcohol, tobacco, solvents and other drugs) during school time. To allow the school to react appropriately and consistently to drug related incidents, so that the behaviour of the few does not jeopardise the health or learning environment of the rest of our students. To provide a programme of Personal Development which promotes positive attitudes to health and allows young people to develop social and life skills to ensure that they are aware of the dangers of drug use.
