Buckswood School Policy Statements



At Buckswood we strive to comply to all of our external agencies in insuring that all policies are written & implemented. Policies are not documents that are written and never looked at we, at Buckswood view policies in a triangular effect (the policy itself, the implementation of the policy and the impact and outcome of the policy and therefore the review and rewrite and update -( Process Tracking Triangle). This forms the basis of the structure, safety and enjoyment of those in this learning environment. Remember, Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is everyone’s responsibility. Everyone who comes into contact with children and their families and carers has a role to play in safeguarding children. In order to fulfil this responsibility effectively, all professionals should make sure their approach is child-centred. This means that they should consider, at all time, what is in the best interests of the child.
