From Monday 2nd November we are introducing a one-way system around the school site. This is to support social distancing and ease congestion at the beginning and end of the day. Thurs 5th - Bonfire lunch. Fri 6th - individual photos. Take a look at our class pages as well as our special projects section using the square button below. Please see our COVID-19 pupil absence guide for parents and staff- available in the 'links and downloads' section below.

Policies

We have an extensive list of policies that cover the nursery and main school and a number of these are uploaded below.  The policies ensure your child's academic, emotional and physical wellbeing is outstanding at all times.  If you wish to request a particular policy or have a query relating to a school procedure, then please contact the school office. 

Safeguarding

Indian Queens Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

This means that we have a Child Protection Policy and procedures in place which we refer to in our policy below.  Parents and carers are welcome to request a hard copy from the school office.

Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a child's welfare.  We will ensure that our concerns about our pupils are discussed with his/her parents/carers first unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child's welfare.

The Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) is Mrs Sue Roberts and the Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead (DDSL) is Mrs Tracey Clarke.  The designated person for Children in Care is Mrs Tracey Clarke.

Scheme of Publication

Indian Queens Primary School is committed to complying with and implementing the provisions of the Freedom of Information Act (2000) and related legislation. This provides a general entitlement to any person to be able to access information held by the schools, subject to exemptions and conditions laid down by law.

This policy applies to all information held by schools regardless of how it was created or received. It applies irrespective of the media on which the information is stored and whether the information is recorded on paper or held electronically. The Act’s powers are fully retrospective and thus information is accessible no matter how old it may be. Similarly, information in draft form will also be accessible under the Act.

We will offer advice and assistance to anybody wishing to make a request for information.

It should be noted that access to personal information (that is information from which a living individual can be identified) is still governed under the Data Protection Act 2018. Requests for access to such information will be governed in line with the requirements of this legislation.

With the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) now in effect, we would like to inform you that we have updated our privacy notices.
