Appraisal provides a framework for a clear and consistent assessment of the overall performance of teachers, including the Headteacher. It is a supportive process that outlines means for supporting the personal and professional development of teachers within the context of the School Improvement Plan, their own professional needs and the standards expected of teachers/Headteacher.
Attendance for Learning
This policy provides a procedural framework which defines agreed roles and responsibilities for pupils and parents, staff and governors. It provides guidance on registration, authorised and unauthorised absence, leave-taking, referral routes and potential sanctions, re-integration and systems for monitoring attendance and punctuality, as well as strategies employed to deal with absence.
Behaviour for Learning
Central Lancaster High School is committed to creating an environment where exemplary behaviour is at the heart of productive learning and a highly cohesive school community. It is called the ‘Behaviour for Learning’ policy as the two are inextricably linked.
Every child should leave school prepared for modern Britain. Careers and Enterprise Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) is crucial in helping pupils emerge from school more fully rounded and ready for the world of work. Central Lancaster High School aims to deliver impartial careers guidance through a range of processes designed to develop high aspirations in pupils, encourage pupils to consider a broad and ambitious range of careers and enable individuals to make informed choices and transitions related to their personal, educational and careers development.
Charging and Remissions
This charging policy complies with statutory requirements, and has regard to the Authority's policy statements on charging and is reviewed on an annual basis. In keeping with the school's inclusive ethos, trips and activities are promoted to all and wherever possible are made accessible to all.
The policy of the School is to work in partnership with parents and the wider community. It is based on the belief that co-operation and a sense of joint purpose between staff, parents and the School will assist in ensuring open and positive relationships. From time to time, however, parents and members of the public may express concern or make a complaint, either orally or in writing, about some aspect of the conduct/operation of the School, the conduct of the Headteacher, an individual member of staff, the Governing Body or an individual governor.

Everyone who comes into contact with children and their families has a role to play in safeguarding children. School staff are particularly important as they are in a position to identify concerns early and provide help for children to prevent concerns from escalating. Central Lancaster High School recognises its responsibilities for safeguarding children and works with a range of agencies including social services, children’s services, the police, health services and other agencies to promote the welfare of children and protect them from harm.
This is a school where young people matter, which provides excellent teaching and learning. The school ethos is clearly visible; a warm, friendly yet purposeful environment with excellent relationships. The educational philosophy is known by all. The size of the school allows us to get to know our students well and therefore make the best of each individual’s talents, providing the right challenges to achieve all our pupils potential.
