At John Stainer, we have a set of policies which cover all aspects of school life.

These include the school’s approach to Teaching and Learning, Parental Engagement, Equalities, the school curriculum and health and safety.

Some of these policies are required by law and we have others because we believe that they are best practice to have. All of our policies are ratified by the Governing Body. Printed copies of each policy may be obtained from the school office.
