School policies cover every aspect of school life. Below are some of our most important policies for your reference. If you want to know our policy on something that is not listed, please ask the school office.
Millbank primary school
code of conduct
We expect parents, carers and visitors to:
Respect the caring ethos of our school.
Understand that both teachers and parents need to work together for the benefit of their children.
Accept and agree that all members of the school community should be treated with respect and therefore set a good example in their own speech and behaviour.
Seek to clarify a child’s version of events with the school’s view in order to bring about a peaceful solution to any issue.
Approach the school to help resolve any issues of concern.
Abusive or threatening e-mails or text/voicemail/phone messages or other written communication.
Using loud/or offensive language, swearing, cursing, using profane language or displaying temper.
Threatening to do actual bodily harm to a member of school staff, Governor, visitor, parent, carer or pupil.
Damaging or destroying school property.
Disruptive behaviour which interferes or threatens to interfere with the operation of a classroom, an office, or any other area of the school grounds, inside and out.
Defamatory, offensive or derogatory comments regarding the school, pupils or staff on any social media sites.
The use or threat of physical aggression towards another adult or child.
Approaching someone else’s child in order to discuss or tell them off.
Should any of the above behaviour occur on school premises the school will contact the appropriate authorities, including the Police if needed, and may even ban the offending adult from entering the school grounds.
We trust that parents and carers will assist our school with the implementation of this policy and we thank you for your continuing support of the school.
Any concerns you may have about the school must be made through the appropriate channels by speaking to the class teacher, the Head teacher or the Chair of Governors, so they can be dealt with fairly, appropriately and effectively for all concerned.

Social media websites are being used increasingly to fuel campaigns and complaints against schools, Headteachers, school staff, and in some cases other parents/pupils. The Governors of Millbank Primary School considers the use of social media websites being used in this way as unacceptable and not in the best interests of the children or the whole school community.
In the event that any pupil or parent/carer of a child being educated in Millbank is found to be posting libellous or defamatory comments on Facebook or other social network sites, they will be reported to the appropriate 'report abuse' section of the network site. All social network sites have clear rules about the content which can be posted on the site and they provide robust mechanisms to report contact or activity which breaches this. The school will also expect that any parent/carer or pupil removes such comments immediately.
In serious cases the school will also consider its legal options to deal with any such misuse of social networking and other sites. Additionally, and perhaps more importantly is the issue of cyber bullying and the use by one child or a parent to publicly humiliate another by inappropriate social network entry. We will take and deal with this as a serious incident of school bullying.
We expect that parents make all persons responsible for caring for your children aware of this policy.
