Policies and written procedures are a fundamental tool for ensuring the effective, safe and consistent management of any organisation. You will need to familiarise yourself with the key policies of each organisation in which you work and study. You are not expected to memorise every detail of every policy; most organisations publish them on their websites or within their staff IT systems so you can refer back to them.
You are expected to have read and understood a number of their key policies before you begin working in any school. These are:
- Safeguarding & Child Protection
- Teaching & Learning
- Health & Safety
- Special Educational Needs & Disabilities (SEND)
If there is anything that you don't understand, ask questions to get the clarification you need.
Winchester University has a wide range of policies on its website which you need to be aware of as their student.
