Please do contact the school if you would like to discuss any aspect of the school policy documents or if you would like us to provide you with a free hard copy.
Our Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy and Procedure needs to be read in conjunction with “Keeping Children Safe in Education: Statutory Guidance for Schools and Colleges” September 2020 and “Working together to Safeguard Children: A guide to inter-agency working to safeguard and promote the welfare of Children” July 2018. The school is part of the Operation Encompass scheme. The purpose of Operation Encompass is to safeguard and support children and young people who have been involved in a domestic abuse incident.
In accordance with legislation, the Governors of the school have a policy for charging for school activities. This policy is as recommended by the East Sussex County Council and a full copy is available at the school on request.
In brief, the school does not make any charge for activities which are deemed part of the normal curriculum. There are occasions, however, when visits or activities are arranged for which we ask for a voluntary contribution from parents and carers to help cover the costs. It should be emphasised that no child will be excluded from such visits or activities if their parents and carers are unable or unwilling to make a contribution, but if sufficient contributions are not forthcoming, the visit may have to be cancelled.
The school can make a charge for activities which take place out of normal school hours— this will include our annual residential visit for the Year 6 children — and the County Council will make charges for children receiving musical tuition from peripatetic teachers.
NO staff at Hurst Green have a gross annual salary of £100,000 or more.
