Grove Wood Primary adopts Essex Local Authority policies for all its Human Resources management, its Health and Safety management and key statutory functions. These policies are copyright to Essex County Council and so are not available to read online.

There are also school policies which are streamlined by the school and are ratified by the Governing Body annually. These policies direct the local management of the school and fall into two categories; those that are local responses to statutory requirements and those that focus around Grove Wood's individual needs.

Policies are available on request
