School Policies

Please click on the title below to view our school policies.

We recognise that positive behaviour and good attendance are central to raising standards and pupil attainment. For children to reach full potential from their education it is vital that they attend regularly and be at school, on time, every day.

 

Our Golden Rules apply for all children and adults at Invicta at all times and have been decided by the whole school community. 

 

A presentation on our behaviour scheme.

 

In March 2015 new statutory duties were placed on schools by the ‘Counter Terrorism and Security Act,’ (2015) which means they must work to prevent children being drawn into extremism. Safeguarding children from all risks of harm is an important part of a school’s work and protecting them from extremism is one aspect of that


This policy is in line with the Greenwich Safeguarding Children Board Child Protection Procedures, “Working Together to Safeguard Children March 2013” and “Keeping Children Safe in Education” April 2015 which “…requires governing bodies of maintained schools and FE colleges to make arrangements to ensure that their functions are carried out with a view to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children.”

We aim to provide your child with the best possible education and meet his or her needs as well as we can. However, in any school, parents may occasionally feel concerned about something or have a complaint. If this is the case we want to hear from you. 

We set homework based on the age and ability of the child. The aim is to provide children with opportunities to present their homework in a variety of ways to suit their learning styles. Homework is set online through SHOW MY HOMEWORK, however we provide alternative resources for those without access to the internet at home.

 

The use of IT can enhance learning across the whole curriculum. Therefore at Invicta School, IT is an integral part of the curriculum. 

This Induction pack was written to give you all the information you should need to feel confident and secure about delivering sessions at Invicta

The development of detailed school policy and practice (for internet use) together with parent/school contracts in an “Acceptable Use Policy” is required for all Greenwich Schools.

Invicta Primary School and Children’s Centre is committed to the involvement of Volunteers and local people who want to be a part of local community activity. 

  • Lettings Policy: 

The Governing Body of Invicta Primary School is keen to see that the premises at our school are used for the benefit of the whole local community.  

The aim of this policy is to clarify the schools/parents responsibilities in relation to medicines and medical procedures in school.

This policy applies to all School employees and former employees, agency staff and contractors engaged by the School.

 The Governing Body of Invicta Primary School recognises the valuable contribution that the wide range of additional activities, including trips, clubs and residential experiences can make towards pupils’ education.

The general duty of the Disability Discrimination Act 2005 states that we should in carrying out our functions have due regard to the need to: eliminate unlawful disability discrimination, eliminate disability related harassment, promote equality of opportunity between disabled people and others, promote positive attitudes towards disabled people, encourage participation by disabled people in public life, take steps to take account of disabled people’s disabilities even where that involves treating disabled people more favourably than others.This scheme outlines how we will fulfil this duty.

  • Gender Equality Policy-

 It is a requirement that pupils, staff, trade unions and those using school services should be involved in the production of the Gender Equality Scheme. Invicta Primary School has consulted with pupils, staff, trade unions and service users in the development of our Gender Equality Scheme. 

We recognise that the potential attainment of each pupil varies, and that some individuals are capable of reaching a higher standard in a particular aspect of achievement. In order to meet this vision we need to have different expectations for each child.

We are committed to giving all our children every opportunity to achieve the highest of standards. Within this ethos of achievement, we do not tolerate bullying or harassment of any kind. Pupils will be provided with the opportunity to experience, understand and celebrate diversity. This policy reflects the school's general and specific duties, as detailed in: Race Relations (Amendment) Act 2000; Code of Practice on the Duty to Promote Race Equality 2001, issued by the Commission for Racial Equality (CRE); Preparing a Race Equality Policy for Schools (CRE 2002).
