Our children’s safety is of the utmost importance to us and we work hard to keep them safe.
All of our staff receive regular safeguarding training. We have trained Designated Safeguard Leads (DSL) in school;
Julie Sarti is the DSL
Ellena Mortimer and Sam Dunne are Deputy DSLs
Cathy Shergold is the Governance member of the Local Schools Board with responsibility for Safeguarding.
We encourage anyone with a safeguarding concern to contact one of our safeguarding team.
If we have reasonable cause for concern that a child maybe at risk of significant harm, we will refer to social care. This referral can be made with or without us informing parents.
For further information please read our Child Protection policy and other policies that support Safeguarding. These are available in our Information Hub under the tab ‘Policies’ – or contact one of our safeguarding team.
On our Home Page, you will find the CEOPS button which you can click to instantly access support and guidance about keeping your child safe online, or to report anything connected with online safety.
Some quick tips for keeping your children safe on-line:
You are the responsible adult. You pay the bill. You own the phone. Therefore, you have the right and responsibility to be a good watchdog.
- Learn how to check up on your child.
- Privacy covers things like going to the bathroom, not ignoring all of their tech communication.
- Limit access to mobile phones and tablet devices e.g. not in your bedroom or not after 8pm.
- There are Apps available that allow you to limit access to certain times e.g. OurPact, Screen Time Parental Control.
- Keep a note of your child’s password to social media accounts so that you can monitor activity.
- Be curious, know where they are going and where they have been online. Advise children not to respond to abusive or obscene postings whether this is online, text messages or video messages. You can report incidents of abusive emails and inappropriate sites to your Internet Service Provider (ISP). Your mobile service provider should have a number that you can ring to report abusive messaging. Try their websites for details.
- Ask your children to teach you how to use what they are using.
At the heart of the work of every primary school class is a continuous cycle of planning, teaching and assessment which takes account of the wide range of abilities, aptitudes and interests of the children. The majority of children will learn and progress within these arrangements. Those children whose overall attainments and achievement in specific subjects fall significantly outside the expected range may have Special Educational Needs (SEN).
For children who have a specific learning difficulty or a disability, our Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) policy outlines the educational support we provide.
If a teacher notices a pupil experiencing difficulties with their learning they will seek guidance from the school Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Co-ordinator (SENDCo).
Our SENDCo is Julie Sarti.
Advice will be given, which may include alternate strategies to support the pupils learning. Both class teacher and SENDCo will hold a meeting with parents to discuss next steps which could include:
Advise parents to make an appointment to see the GP
Referral to the Speech and Language Therapist service
Referral to the Specialist Teacher Team
Referral to Educational Psychologist service
Referral to EWMHS (Emotional Welfare and Mental Health Services)
When a child is placed on the Special Educational Needs register, consultation with parents will continue through:
Parent consultation day.
One Plan meetings at least twice a year, working alongside pupils, parents and sometimes specialist agencies to set specific targets that work towards achieving a long-term goal.
For pupils with a Statement/ Education Health Care plan (EHC Plan) Annual Review meetings.
