Trust Policies

The Trust's policy documents are reviewed regularly. They are published on these pages (left) as soon as they have been approved at Trust level. They apply to the 12 Priory academies, the Early Years setting at Priory Witham Academy, Priory Apprenticeships and Lincolnshire SCITT. Additional information can be obtained by contacting our individual academies.

In addition, the Trust complies with the Public Sector Equality Duty and our objectives for 2021-2025 are published here.

The Trust is committed to leading a healthy organisation, which includes:

  • a commitment to protect and promote emotional wellbeing and mental health;
  • a commitment to the tenets of the Trust’s Workload Charter and the DfE's Workload Toolkit.

Members of staff are encouraged to speak to their line managers, and students are encouraged to speak to any member of staff, if they feel any part of a policy would affect their emotional wellbeing and mental health. Members of staff are similarly encouraged to speak to their line managers if they feel any part of a policy would have a significant impact on their workload. Any such comments should be passed to the Trust’s HR department (via for appropriate consideration at the next available point in the policy review cycle.
