Keeping Your Child Safe

‘Safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility, every day’

Our first and foremost priority is to keep your child safe and healthy. Under the new OFSTED framework safeguarding is a key indicator of what constitutes a good school.

Keeping your child safe means:

  • Protecting children from deliberate harm
  • Being an anti-bullying school
  • Meeting the needs of children with medical conditions
  • Providing first aid
  • Children enjoying safe educational visits/trips
  • Caring for children’s personal needs
  • Keeping children safe when using the internet
  • Making sure our school is safe and secure
  • Being a ‘listening school’
  • Ensuring they know who to go to if they have a problem
  • Promoting our ‘Buddy system’

Child Protection

All staff receive appropriate training in ‘Safeguarding’ and ‘Child Protection’ to ensure that they are aware of the school’s procedures for child protection and their responsibilities. Our designated Safeguarding Officer is Mrs Heyes who is happy to speak to any parent who has concerns (by appointment only).
