This section contains some of High Close School’s policies, which have been designed to protect and guide young people.

Our policies are there to help develop pupils’ awareness of moral, social, cultural and spiritual values, and actively promote positive behaviour through the supportive environment of the school. Their aim is to help our students make a positive contribution to the school and community and become independent, informed and responsible young people.

All policies come under regular review and are updated in a rolling programme as and when necessary, and many of these policies are discussed with the pupils themselves. Upon joining the school, students are given a booklet, Young Person’s Handbook Statement of Purpose, which includes relevant information on our policies.

Our policies include:

Pupils are well prepared for the next stage of learning when they leave High Close. As a result, the vast majority of former pupils obtain appropriate placements in further education settings. School leaders continue to track pupils after they leave, and visit them in their new settings to check on their progress. They check to see if there is anymore they can do to help pupils succeed in the future..    Ofsted January 2018
