Key Policies 
Attendance Policy​
 
At Nanpean School, attendance is one of our highest priorities to ensure that all children get the most out of their education with us. We have a number of procedures and reward schemes in place to encourage and reward high attendance. We have worked closely with local cluster schools to develop a workable and effective Attendance Policy.​
Anti-Bullying Policy
 
At Nanpean School we do not tolerate bullying in any form. We have policies in place that we follow to ensure that any cases of bullying are dealt with properly. Please click on the link to read how we tackle this issue.
Behaviour and Discipline Policy
 
​At Nanpean the highest standards of behaviour are expected and encouraged so that our school can be an orderly calm place in which to learn. At all times the children are expected to be polite and to show consideration and respect for other peoples’ feelings, needs and property. In accordance with s89 of the Education and Inspections Act 2006, our Behaviour Policy clarifies our high expectations of behaviour and the rewards and consequences in place.

In a school, which aims to promote an atmosphere which values diversity and respect of difference, bullying cannot be tolerated and is taken very seriously by everyone at the school. We encourage the children to tell a member of the school staff if they have any concerns. It would also be helpful for you to speak to the class teacher first, then the headteacher if you have any concerns. It is important that children and the school work together for the benefit of the children.
Child Protection and Safeguarding
 
This policy develops procedures and good practice within our School, ensuring that each person within the school can demonstrate that there is an understanding of the duty to safeguard and promote the welfare of children and young people including those who are vulnerable. It provides evidence of how this will be implemented within our School and within multi-agency working arrangements.
