School Policies


School policies cover every aspect of school life. Below are some of our most important policies for your reference. For details of our use of the Pupil Premium Grant and Sports Premium Funding, please click on the 'Our School - Statutory Information' tab.

Policies address the practical implications of how to achieve the school's vision and are a key means of ensuring that agreed values underpin day-to-day decisions and actions in our school. They are concerned with key processes within school and are about interactions between school, pupils, parents and community. They are about ensuring highly effective teaching and learning, about safety and about basic human rights.

All policies at Keston are intended to guide the work of the Leadership Team and the staff to provide a framework for the smooth functioning of our school based in a shared understanding of the school's strategic plan and vision.

We have 3 categories of Policy:

  • Statutory - covering major strategic areas required by law, as stated by the Government's Statutory Policies for Schools document (November 2019)
  • Discretionary - additional policies covering additional areas, not required by law.
  • Curriculum- policies on specific subject areas of the curriculum. These are all discretionary.

Some of our Statutory policies can be seen below. Paper copies of all policies are available, on request, from the school office.
