The school has a full range of policies that parents might wish to see. These can be accessed from the menu on the left. If you would prefer a paper copy of a policy please contact the school. Although we will try to avoid doing so a small cost may be charged where the cost of printing is high.
This is our anti bullying policy. It also contains some guidance to students and parents. Bullying happens in all schools but at Walton le Dale we treat it very seriously. We believe that it best dealt with at an early stage so it dos not escalate; we urge students and parents to keep us informed if there are any issues.
To comply with the Data Protection Act, each Lancashire school provides a Privacy Notice, previously known as Fair Processing Notice (FPN), to the parents or carers of all new and current pupils, and generally to the pupils themselves if they are 12 years or older.
Walton-le-Dale, in line with national guidance, has developed a charging policy which details what the school will charge for different activities, including educational trips and music tuition. The policy is available below.
The attached document below explains our homework policy in detail.
In KS3 we have regular homework for some subjects but for others students complete a project based homework over a 2-3 week period. The timetable for this can be found on this site. It can also be found on our Moodle, alongside all the homework tasks for each subject.
More details about our philosophy and practice can be found in other parts of the website, such as our 'ethos' and 'inclusion' sections.
Walton le Dale is proud of its ethos, that we work together to get the best out of each other. This requires us all to support each other. Part of this is to behave sensibly at all times, respect each other and respect the rights of other people to learn and enjoy their education. On behalf of everyone at the school we therefore expect the highest standards of behaviour. This is reflected in the policy
