Care of Children
The safety and welfare of children is the most fundamental part of our school. Safeguarding children is everybody's responsibility in our school and all staff members take this part of their job very seriously. We aim to offer a secure and encouraging environment where children's social, moral and cultural development is enhanced through delivery of the curriculum.
Each member of the staff team is responsible for the care of children and their welfare in school. When incidents occur they are dealt with by a member of the school staff in the first instance. If further action is required parents will be contacted. Should you have any worries or concerns about your child in school you should contact your child's teacher in the first instance. The Headteacher is also available (by prior arrangement if possible) to discuss any more serious concerns.
Parents should be aware that the school is required to take any reasonable action to safeguard its pupils. In cases where the school has reason to be concerned that a child may be subject to ill-treatment, neglect or other forms of abuse, the Headteacher is obliged to follow the Child Protection procedures and in form the Social Services of the concern.
Any volunteers or new members of staff have to have an induction with the Headteacher to discuss safeguarding within school and their responsibilities. All staff and volunteers are kept up to date with any recent changes or any new documents. All visitors and volunteers are asked to read our Safeguarding guidance on entrance to the school.
