The happiness and care of our pupils is of paramount importance. We want every pupil to feel at home in their school; to know they are somewhere with people who care about them and are eager for them to learn.
We provide the very best pastoral care for pupils and teachers take the time to get to know each child so that they can provide them with the personalised support and care they need and deserve.
Our Designated Child Protection Officers are:
Mrs E Hames and Mrs T Haigh
Cause for Concern
Teachers are asked to report any causes for concern to the School Safeguarding Officer(s) using a written proforma. Any concerns will be shared with parents as early as possible, as more often than not there are extremely reasonable explanations for the concern. Concerns may range from children being visibly upset, persistent lateness to children ‘disclosing’ concerns.
All lateness and absences are recorded by the School Administrative Assistants, Mrs Lodge. Reasons will be sought for all absence or lateness. Attendance is monitored through these systems and referrals to the Safeguarding Team can be made. Parents will always be informed of concerns around attendance at the earliest point. If attendance concerns continues, the school will refer to the Attendance Officer.
A child may be at risk of harm if they do not attend school regularly or are consistently late. Safeguarding and child protection will be considered in all instances.
It is very important that everyone stays safe whilst online. The internet is a great place to learn and communicate with other people. If you have any concerns about anything online please speak to a relative or teacher.
