Yorkshire Causeway Schools Trust provides a core set of policies across the Trust. Individual governing bodies focus their time and energy on the priorities of teaching and learning.  Statutory policies approved by the Trust board can be viewed via the links below.

Beyond these key policies the governing body of each school is responsible for its own individual policies to ensure each school has its own individual character and represents the priorities of its community.

The trustees of Yorkshire Causeway Schools Trust are reviewing policies across the Trust. During this time, each Academy will adhere to their existing policies which can be seen on their individual websites or by asking at the school office.
