Safeguarding Information & Policies

Our school is a "caring community" and aims to provide a secure and happy atmosphere for the children.  If you are concerned about the welfare or lack of social skills of any child in the school, please contact Mrs Kerr who is the person responsible for pastoral care, and is the Designated Safeguarding Lead. Our Safeguarding Governor is Mr Steve Stoppard. It is hoped that parents will not be hesitant in contacting the staff or named Governor when there are any queries and, if necessary, appointments can be made to see parents out of school hours.

If you have any concerns that a child or young person (outside of school) is suffering any form of abuse, details of how to raise a concern can be found on the document below: the Multi Agency Referral Unit (MARU) and Early Help Hub.

School Security

School security is very important, and at present security measures include:

·         All visitors are challenged

·         Visitors sign in and out

·         Children only leave with a known adult

·         Security alarms are set in both buildings when unoccupied

·         Security lights operate during the hours of darkness

 

Keeping Children Safe Online

We hold annual workshops for children and parents to ensure that all stakeholders are well informed and up to date regarding how to ensure full transparency on children’s safety online.

The ‘Prevent’ Strategy

All staff have had relevant training on the Government’s ‘Preventing Radicalisation’ agenda. Two members of staff have attending ‘WRAP’ training (Workshop to Raise Awareness of Prevent).
