Policies & Statements

School policies cover every aspect of school life. Below are some of our most important policies for your reference. If you want to know our policy on something that is not listed, please contact us.


As members of the TEAM Education Trust, we work to the policies set out by our Trust.  Where there is a need for a variation from the policies, we prepare a Statement of Policy Practice which is agreed by our Local Governing Board.  

Cultural Values & Equality Objectives and Action Plan 2022-2023 

Stubbin Wood School have been actively involved in the development of the TEAM Education Trust Equality Objectives.  Our approach for the year ahead is tailored directly to meet the needs of our learners. 


TEAM Education Trust Cultural Values & Equality Objectives 

To promote personal development through spiritual, moral, social and cultural development through a rich range of curricular opportunities, with particular reference to issues of global, national and local equality and diversity 


To engage with and work alongside parents, carers and guardians to create an environment where learning reaches beyond the classroom with a series of informal and formal meetings and interactive events. 

To promote active listening to ensure that students listen to understand both themselves and others.  Each day, the schools are to have a 3 minute listening activity each day. 

To increase the volume of pupil voice by extending our school council to include a fair representation of all pupils in school and to develop this so that all Trust schools can operate in a shared culture of unity and belonging 



Stubbin Wood School recognises the importance of the Trust’s Cultural Values & Equality Objectives and will be working to the four themes outlined above with three key actions over the following year. This is intended to provide the keystone on which further work can be developed. 


By reducing the barriers to communication, students will be able to access SMSC development and encourage active listening. By fostering good relationships between learners with SEND and their peers, we will enrich the value of pupil voice whilst enabling access for all pupils and visitors will facilitate engagement with parents, carers and guardians to support learning beyond the classroom. 


These milestones will be reviewed.
