I didn't get past the first sentence I'm afraid

"If any section of this policy is contrary to the code of practice then good reason has been given"

how nice - I wonder if they realise it is statutory guidance - they can't just pick and choose whether to have regard to it -

TROUBLE is they don't have to COMPLY with it, they have to have REGARD to it - so unless the wording says "must" - you are still stuffed if CoP says "should" or other wooliness

To prevent any further unpleasantness I'm not reading any further smile

Some independent schools in my area have similar policies.

Statutory guidance must be followed unless there is good reason for not doing so - this is why it is phrased in that way.

Not saying it is lawful - haven't read it!
