Academy Policies

Each ESF school is responsible for writing and regularly reviewing its own set of policies covering all aspects of the school’s life, routines and procedures.

Policies are informative, working documents which aim to establish excellence in procedures and practice and which educate and empower those that work within the organisation. Their contents are in harmony with the core values and Christian ethos of the schools.

On each policy document, the date of the most recent review and the date of the next scheduled review will be recorded so that no policy becomes out of date.

In addition to individual schools’ policies, a number of policies govern the running of the Trust, the Whistle Blowing Policy, Charging and Remissions Policy.
