Safeguarding

SAFEGUARDING INFORMATION

We have a duty to ensure children are safe. In school we do this by making sure that everyone who comes into the building is suitable for working with children. We also work hard to minimise risk in the school grounds and building.

Who can I talk to?

Children

You can talk to your class teacher or teaching assistant if you feel worried or unsafe. If you feel that you can’t talk to them, then you can speak to Mr Roddy, Miss Green , or any other teacher you feel safe with. Everyone at school wants you to feel happy and safe.

There is a free* telephone advice service called Childline where you can talk to someone in confidence about your worries. The number is 0800 1111.

*the service is free on landlines and on the following mobile networks: 3, BT mobile, Fresh, O2, Orange, T-mobile, Virgin, Vodafone.

Parents

If you have any concerns about your child’s welfare, please make an appointment with the class teacher in the first instance. Remember, they will take any issue or concern you have seriously, and are committed to helping your child feel safe at school. Most issues are resolved satisfactorily at this stage.

If you or the teacher feels that the issue cannot be resolved at this level, a meeting can be arranged with the headteacher to take this issue further.
