Route 39 Academy provides a range of policies to enable the Academy to operate efficiently. They also ensure that parents, students and staff know what to expect from the Academy and in return what the Academy needs from them.
All policies are agreed by the Governing Body and are reviewed annually to ensure they remain effective and conform to current Government legislation.
This policy details the admission arrangements for our school and should be read in conjunction with the Co-ordinated Admissions Schemes and other agreed policies of Devon County Council, the Local Authority (LA).
Learning Provision Plan
The Plan aims to recognise the specific needs of the student population and community. It clearly explains how the Plan will seek to realise the potential of every student whilst being a hub for the whole community
Behaviour and Discipline Policy
Misbehaviour is not the breaking of a rule, but the breaking of a social bond. As such, we believe that positive relationships are the key to ensuring that everyone in our community is able to work to their full potential and enjoy being here. Our behaviour policy reflects our core ethos of ENGAGE - RESPECT - ASPIRE.
Charging and Remissions Policy
The purpose of the policy is to ensure that there is clarity over those items which the Academy will provide free of charge and for those items where there may be a charge.
Child Protection/Safeguarding Policy
Route 39 Academy fully recognises its responsibilities to safeguard and promote the welfare of children and young people. Route 39 Academy is committed to providing a safe and secure environment for children, staff and visitors, and to promoting a climate where children and adults feel confident about sharing any concerns, which they may have about their own safety, or the well-being of others.
Safer Recruitment Policy
Our academy endeavours to ensure that we do our utmost to employ ‘safe’ staff and volunteers to work with children.
This complaints procedure describes how anyone with a complaint can set about having the complaint dealt with.
Educational Visits Policy
Students at Route 39 Academy will derive educational benefit from taking part in visits. This policy is designed to ensure that students stay safe and healthy on Academy visits.
Equality, Diversity and Harassment Policy, incorporating the Accessibility Plan
The delivery of the curriculum at Route 39 Academy provides opportunities for all children to reach their full potential regardless of race, disability, gender or social background. We actively seek to positively promote this entitlement throughout our school.
Health, Safety and Wellbeing Policy
The Academy is committed to providing a safe environment and recognises its responsibility to promote a culture where Health, Safety and Wellbeing issues are discussed in an open and positive way to achieve improved standards and safe methods of work.
Sex and Relationships Policy
At Route 39 Academy we support the belief that ‘effective sex and relationship education is essential if young people are to make responsible and well informed decisions about their lives’ and that it should not be taught in isolation.
Prevention of Bullying Policy
The aim of this policy is to clarify for students, staff and parents/carers that bullying behaviour is always unacceptable. We wish to encourage an environment where independence is celebrated and individuals can flourish without fear.
Special Educational Need and Disability (SEND) and Inclusion Policy
