Behaviour Policy

We aim to provide all children with a sound foundation of skills, knowledge, attitudes and values that will enable them to be lifelong learners, and to play a positive role in society. This involves teaching children to make a positive contribution to their community both in school and beyond the school gates. We believe that our school provides a safe and supportive community in which children can learn to apply these skills and attitudes. 


Charging and Remissions Policy Statement

The Governing Body of Lexden Primary School recognises the valuable contribution that a wide range of additional activities, including trips, clubs and residential experiences can make towards pupils' education. The Governing Body aims to promote and provide such activities both as part of a broad and balanced curriculum for the pupils of the school and as additional optional activities.



Schools and their staff form part of the wider safeguarding system for children. Everyone who comes into contact with children and their families and carers has a role to play in safeguarding children. In order to fulfil this responsibility effectively, all professionals should make sure their approach is child centred. This means that they should consider, at all times, what is in the best interests of the child. 


Privacy Notice

Lexden Primary School with Unit for Hearing Impaired Children respects you and your child’s privacy when you use the Organisation’s services and is committed complying with privacy legislation.


Single Equalities Scheme and Equality Objectives

The governing body and school is committed to a policy of equality and aims to ensure that no employee, job applicant, pupil or other member of the school community is treated less (or more) favourably on grounds of sex, race, colour, ethnic or national origin, marital status, age, sexual orientation, disability or religious belief. 


Keeping Children Safe in Education September 2019

This is statutory guidance from the Department for Education issued under Section 175 of the Education Act 2002, the Education (Independent School Standards) Regulations 2014 and the Non-Maintained Special Schools (England) Regulations 2015. Schools and colleges must have regard to it when carrying out their duties to safeguard and promote the welfare of children. This means that they should comply with it unless exceptional circumstances arise. 


Visitors' and Visiting Speakers Policy

 Visitors are welcome to Lexden Primary School. They make a contribution to the life and work of the school in many different ways. The learning opportunities and experience they bring are encouraged and appreciated. It is the school’s responsibility, however, to ensure that the security and welfare of its pupils is not compromised at any time. The school is equally responsible to the whole school community for ensuring that visitors comply with the guidelines.
