School Policies

Churchward School is part of the Brunel SEN Multi Academy Trust (BSM). Policies within the BSM are created and owned using a 3 Tier system. In addition to their policies, BSM also describes intent and procedure with specific BSM statements. The overall accountability for policy and procedure clearly resides with the BSM board but the 3 Tier system allows for delegation to the responsible organisation/individuals.

The aim of the 3 Tier system is to ensure quality and consistency but acknowledges and respects Education Provisions (EPs) are bespoke and must have their individuality. This approach runs right at the heart of the ‘standards not standardisation’ agenda within the BSM. Taking this systematic approach will simplify work for EPs with economies of scale, shared ideas and ‘here’s one we prepared earlier’ benefits.

Tier 1 Policies: BSM Wide Policies Tier 1 policies are centrally held policies relating to Governance, HR, Finance, IT and Estates & Facilities Management and are directly owned directly by BSM. Tier 1 policies are created by the BSM Central Services Team but adopted and reviewed by the BSM Board.
