Teaching, Learning & Welfare Policies
Policy Making Process
The Local Authority (LA - Cambridgeshire County Council) and The Government are responsible for updating and issuing some of the policies which are adopted at Spring Common.
School based policies are drawn up by Spring Common's Senior Management Team (SMT) and will go through a staff and Trustee consultation process. Advice is also sought from our Human Resources company - EPM and Unions where applicable.
When the consultation process is complete and agreements received, the policies will be ratified by the board of Trustees before being issued and implemented.
