Key Policies And Procedures

Hello! My first bit of FD homework already (only started last night) and I'm here already asking for your help!!!

 

I was wondering, out of all the various policies and procedures each setting has, which one(s) would you consider to be the most important?? I have to do research on this so any thoughts anybody has would be really helpful! Also, how do you know which policies and procedures you need? Is there a place you need to go to find out (book, website etc) or are they dictated by Ofsted?

 

Thanks! :D

I was told by Ofsted that the "big four" policies that are considered the most important in their eyes are Health and Safety, Behaviour Management, Equal Opportunities and Special Educational Needs - and that's why they ask for a named member of staff to be responsible for those areas on the policies. Hope this helps!

Have a look in the National Standards, you would find some policies are directives ie: Lost Child policy for one, which could I suppose come under the umbrella of Child Protection.

Also look at all the mandatory requirements in the Standards, these are also important policy and procedure.

 

I think it's difficult to say that one is more important than another., but maybe your research will come up with that as part of it's conclusion :o

 

We all have policies that are not dictated by Ofsted, and if you look on the resources section of the forum you should find a comprehensive list.

If you can't find it let me know. :D
