Full Policy list:

Self-harm policy and guidelines. * UPDATE November 2017*

In B&NES it has been agreed by the Local Safeguarding Children Board (LSCB) that the information contained on the HarmLESS website replaces previous guidance to staff working with children and young people who self-harm. Anyone currently using the document entitled  Multi Agency Guidelines for Professionals Working with Children and Young People who Self-harm should note that as of 1st November 2017 this is now out of date and should be removed from circulation.

A suggested self-harm school policy template using the HarmLESS website and references can be found here. 

Sun Safety - a sample policy can be found here.Use these two documents in conjunction with each other to review and/or develop a suitable self-harm policy or procedure for your school. The guidelines are a B&NES multi-agency document developed locally. The second document, called 'Self Injury, a short guide for schools and teachers' includes a suggested policy structure.

Sex and relationships. We have an editable sample Primary version and a Secondary version developed by Bath and North East Somerset School Improvement and Achievement Service in collaboration with Somerset LA and other colleagues from the South West .

 Food Policies. We have an example School Food policy and Packed Lunch policy available to support you

Equalities (anti-bullying) charter. We have worked with Roundhill Primary to develop our equalities charter. It helps children understand what equality looks like and how it links to anti-bullying. Children and adults from the school community work on delivering the charter together and everyone signs it accordingly. A Secondary version is also being developed so check back later to find it.
