Our priority is to keep all the children in our school safe. We encourage children to talk to the staff and confide in them if they have any worries. We listen carefully to children and generate a caring and considerate atmosphere where children can feel able to discuss their problems freely with others.
The Acting Headteacher, Claire Redwood, is the Senior Designated Safeguarding Officer and our SENCo, Sarah Cate, our Pastoral Lead, Phil Whitehurst, Senior Leaders Mariana Foucher, Hannah Calder and Sophie Hope are also Designated Safeguarding Officers, ensuring a spread across the school.
Our staff are well trained and Safeguarding procedures in school are professionally and confidentially carried out when required. Information is passed on purely on a ‘need to know basis.’
We also value the importance of equipping children with lifelong skills. Learning about how to be safe is an important part of our learning across the school.
