School policies and procedures cover every aspect of school life.
The majority of our school policies are adopted from The Diamond Learning Partnership Trust and can be viewed by visiting https://diamondlearningtrust.com/policies/
Our academy also has other local polices and appendices which are available to view below.
Paper copies of policies and documents can be provided on request.
Dear parents and carers
From September 2020 Relationships Education and Health Education become statutory curriculum content for all primary schools and a guide for parents, published by the Department for Education, is attached.
At Murrow Primary Academy, we have been delivering a PSHE curriculum which covers most of the revised national expectations for some years, with the age and stage at which content is delivered carefully planned for and considered, so there will be very little change for your children. We plan to continue to offer an additional sex education programme as recommended by the Department for Education. Parents may continue to exercise their right to excuse children from sex education lessons which do not form part of the statutory requirements and details of this content will continue to be sent to you each year, prior to being taught.
We very much value and respect your role in teaching your children about healthy relationships, looking after themselves and staying safe. We want teaching in school to complement and reinforce the lessons you teach your child as they grow up and for you to understand what is being taught, when and how. We therefore invite you to read our draft Relationships Education Policy. This policy can be found on our website (www.murrowprimary.co.uk/policies). We are required to consult with you in the development of the Relationship Education Policy and therefore invite you, after reading the policy, to complete our parent questionnaire: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/XBY2QYQ. The questionnaire will close on Wednesday 24th June.
If you have any questions about these, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org

At Murrow Primary Academy - we take safeguarding very seriously.
All staff and governors:-
Children understand that the adults at the school are responsible for keeping them safe. The school rules reflect this - Be Ready, Be Responsible, Be Safe. All children have named two adults who they know they can go to if they feel worried or unsafe, these names appear on our Wall of Trust.
Continuing with the theme of Keeping Children safe - all children are trained in keeping safe on line. Parent workshops explain the latest issues with the online world that children live in today. If you have concerns the Think you Know website is a resource we would recommend
