Below is a list of some of our current policy documents for the school. We are committed to ensuring that our policies are up to date and here for your viewing. We may change our policies from time to time by updating this page so please check this page periodically to ensure you are both familiar and happy with any changes.
ICT in the 21st Century is seen as an essential resource to support learning and teaching, as well as playing an important role in the every day lives of children, young people and adults. Consequently, schools need to build in the use of these technologies in order to arm our children with the skills to access life-long learning and employment.
Information and Communications Technology (ICT) covers a wide range of resources including web-based and mobile learning. It is also important to recognise the constant and fast paced evolution of ICT within our society as a whole.
E-Safety is now a key part of our children’s curriculum and should be part of a parent’s knowledge too. Please follow the below links to sites that will help you and your child become safe online, give you tips for online safety at home and teach you a bit more about the internet:
The welfare of our pupils is the school’s paramount concern. At Snaresbrook Prep School we do all that we can to promote the welfare of pupils and to ensure that children are protected from harm both within the school and beyond our direct control. We recognise that all staff (temporary or supply staff and volunteers) have a full and active duty to protect children at risk of harm and also those who need extra help, including children within the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS).
Parents of children starting at the school are asked to provide the following specific information which is kept within the school office and on the secure computer system:
- Home address and telephone number
- Place of work, address, and telephone number (if applicable)
- Mobile telephone number
- Names, addresses and telephone numbers of adults authorised by parents to collect children on their behalf in an Emergency
In the event that a child is not collected by an authorised adult at the end of the school day, we will ensure that the child is cared for safely by an experienced and qualified member of staff who is known to the child in our After School Care. This is available until 6.15 pm. We will ensure that the child receives a high standard of care in order to cause as little distress as possible.
These Terms and Conditions reflect the custom and practice of independent schools for many generations and they form the basis of a legal contract for educational services. The terms and conditions are intended to promote the education and welfare of each pupil and the stability, forward-planning, proper resourcing and development of the School.
The Safety and Security of the whole school community is the responsibility of staff, parents and visitors. Please read the following document to see how you can help.
All children have a right to a broad, balanced and relevant education which provides continuity and progression and takes individual differences into account. Work in school should be planned to meet and extend where possible, the requirements of the national Curriculum and our additional curriculum.
This policy explains the supervision procedures in place in Snaresbrook Preparatory School for pupils during the day as well as indicating where more detailed information can be found.
Snaresbrook Prep School welcomes suggestions and comments from parents, and takes seriously complaints and concerns they may raise.
The way we work is reviewed regularly. From time to time however, a parent or child may feel they have a complaint against some aspect of our school, or an individual member of staff. Parents can be assured that all concerns and complaints will be treated seriously and confidentially (although disclosure may perhaps be required in the course of the school’s inspection or where legal obligation prevails).
Concerns relating to the welfare or abuse of a child should immediately be referred to the local social services department or Police who have powers to investigate and who will be able to offer advice and support for the child and his/her parents.
