Following the Local Government Re-organisation in April 2019, The Priory School became part of the new Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole Authority. As the school was previously maintained by Dorset County Council, there has been a significant body of work to review and update many of our policies.
The Governing Body and Senior Leadership Team of the school have been working hard to ensure that this is carried out as smoothly and as quickly as possible. For example, the school has retained its connection with Dorset Human Resources and Finance Department, in order to continue with its current practice. However, there are many changes happening at a wider BCP level as they look to align 3 different approaches across the Council, so clarity is still required in certain areas e.g. attendance.
We fully intend that by Christmas 2019 this process will have concluded and that we will be able to update a number of key policies including our Behaviour Management Policy and Child Protection Policy. In the meantime, please refer to the previously agreed policies below – being mindful that there are a number of new ones awaiting final ratification.
