Care

and Support

The school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

The school has a Designated Safeguarding Lead (Mrs J. Wright) who is trained to deal with any incidents relating to child protection.

The school has a Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy, which is made available to all parents via our website or from the school office. This contains descriptions of our procedures in more detail. All staff in school have DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) checks and these are updated regularly. All staff receive safeguarding training as well as updates about topical issues. We feel that quality first teaching methods are extremely important. However, some children need extra support in order for them to reach their full potential. When this has been identified, the Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENCO) will work with other staff in order to support children appropriately: “I am responsible for ensuring that children with SEN are provided for throughout the school, following the Special Educational Needs Policy (this can be requested from the school office). I work with staff to set targets and plan and review interventions for children with SEN. I also liaise with outside agencies in order to gain more specialist support. Other SENCO responsibilities can be seen in the Special Educational Needs Code of Practice. I am available to contact via the school office if you have any concerns or questions.” (Mrs L. Russell)
