Safeguarding

It is extremely important that we keep our children safe and secure at all times. In order to do this we have a variety of systems in place in which we ask parents to support and fully adhere to at all times.

  • A secure entry system with intercom

  • CCTV cameras are placed around the school site

  • On-site parking is restricted to school staff only

  • A member of the SLT stands at the entrances every morning

  • All staff are issued with photo identity lanyards

  • Adults authorised to visit the school site are required to sign in and out and wear visitors' lanyards at all times

  • All adults working regularly with children will be subject to DBS check

  • Adults who occasionally help at school will never be left with children by themselves

  • All staff, including supply teachers and other adults working with children, are given information about how to report concerns

  • Extra- curricular clubs must provide the school with qualification certification and DBS

  • All staff receive safeguarding training at least every three years

  • Staff, governors, parents and children sign an Acceptable Use Agreement for safer internet use

  • Mrs Helen Browett is the Lead Safeguarding Officer

  • Mrs Amy Ingall and Mrs Kath Strong are also designated Safeguarding Officers

  • Mrs Kavita Band is the designated Safeguarding Governor

  • Miss Rachel Gagnon leads on whole school e-safety

The school’s safeguarding policy can be found in the Policies section of our website and on request at the school office.

As a parent you can find information about protecting your child against extremism and radicalisation here.
