Somerfords’ Walter Powell Primary School has a comprehensive set of policies, which are regularly reviewed and updated.  Since converting to an academy in September 2015, many policies have been provided centrally by DBAT; others are produced locally.  A Joint Local Board has now been established, bringing together the governance of Walter Powell with that of Seagry and Christian Malford Primary Schools.  As local policies are reviewed, we will look to bring them together across the three schools where it is appropriate to do so.
