Malton School Policies

Policies and Academisation

Malton School will continue to use its existing policies up to our conversion date for joining the Pathfinder Multi Academy Trust.  Following conversion, we will gradually adopt Pathfinder’s policies.

You will find below a list of our main policies specific to either Malton School or Pathfinder Multi Academy Trust.

Accessibility Plan

The accessibility policy is adopted from the NYC equality scheme document.

The accessibility plan for the school is derived from this document – Equality Scheme Action Plan 2015.

anti-Bullying Policies

At Malton School we are committed to providing a caring, friendly and safe environment for all of our students so they can learn in a relaxed and secure atmosphere. Our anti-bullying policy is available to view here.

Authorised Absence for Holidays in Term Time

Following changes to legislation from September 2013, Malton School is no longer permitted to grant authorized absence for family holidays in term time, except in exceptional circumstances.  For more information, click here.
