We believe it is essential that the quality of residence and its impact on children is both regularly monitored and evaluated throughout the school.
We believe monitoring is best defined as the process of gathering information about actual practice and performance and making sure what is planned is actually taking place. Whereas, the main purpose of evaluation is to make improvements based on the judgements made from monitoring.
We have in place an effective process of monitoring and evaluation undertaken by the headteacher, senior leadership team, subject coordinators, governors, parents, pupils, the local authority and the local community.
The monitoring and evaluation process will look at standards and achievement, the quality of care and the efficiency of the systems in line with the National Minimum Standards.
We wish to work closely with parents, carers and pupils. We will hear their views and opinions as we acknowledge and support Article 12 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child that children should be encouraged to form and to express their views.
We as a school community have a commitment to promote equality. Therefore, an equality impact assessment has been undertaken and we believe this policy is in line with the Equality Act 2010.
