As part of Year 1 of the current SDP, we have been keeping under review several of our policies/procedures this year – to align with Department of Education (ever evolving) guidance/rather than responding to particular concerns.
It is considered good practice if we offer various parties the opportunity to contribute so that we can reflect further on the relevant policy/practice. In this instance, I am inviting comment from parents in relation to two written documents (both of which are contained in the policies section of our website): www.enniskillenmodel.enniskillen.ni.sch.uk Safeguarding and Child Protection
Positive Behaviour and Anti- Bullying If you would like to contribute, please use the space below to add comments and return via your child’s class teacher before the end of April. Staff will be revisiting the documentation in early to mid-May. Thank you.
