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 exceptionally engaged in learning in lessons considering the disruptions to their education and lives that they have previously experienced. Improvements in behaviour are significant and impressive over time. Pupils clearly understand and are motivated by the school’s monitoring and reward system for behaviour. Points gained lead to opportunities to purchase items in the school shop. Pupils are keen to receive certificates for ‘green days’ when they have shown consistent high standards of behaviour throughout the day.    Ofsted January 2013
