Every Child, Every Day
We take the safety and welfare of our pupils very seriously
Curriculum: Embedded within the curriculum are many opportunities for us to teach young people how to stay safe. This includes online safely, education with regards drugs and alcohol, education with regards sexual health, the risks and benefits of social media, healthy relationships, diets and lifestyles and awareness of organisations such as Childline and CEOP (which are linked at the bottom of this page).
Attendance: One of the best ways of keeping your child safe is to ensure that they attend school every day. If a child does not attend when they are expected to telephone calls are made to parents/carers; if the matter remains unresolved the school's Family Support team will make a home visit to offer additional support. Persistent non-attendance is considered to be a safeguarding matter and will be pursued by the school.
Pastoral Guidance and Support: Every pupil has a Personal Tutor to whom they can turn if they are worried, anxious or curious with regards issues that they encounter both in and out of school. Parents meet their child's Personal Tutor formally on three occasion per year to track and monitor academic and personal targets. Personal Tutors make regular contact with parents/carers informally throughout the year and parents/carers are always welcome in school.
Counselling: The school works closely with a mental health charity who offer confidential counselling to our pupils.
What to do if you are worried about a child: If you are worried about a child you should contact the school's Safeguarding Lead straight away on 01264 335640 and ask for either the Headteacher or the Deputy Headteacher.
