The Holgate Academy has a range of policies that govern how we operate to ensure that we work in a safe, secure and progressive establishment. There are a range of specific policies that relate solely to the academy, but we are also bound by policies applied throughout the Diverse Academies Trust. These policies apply to all academies within Diverse Academies and ensure a consistent approach and collective excellence across all.

You can access the policies here, including those covering:

  • safeguarding and child protection
  • charging and remissions
  • concerns and complaints 

If you have any questions about our policies or would like a paper copy of any of our policies please contact the academy by emailing
