Here, you can access all the policies that are related to ensuring your children are safe in our care.
'Keeping Children Safe in Education' is legislative guidance from the Department for Education that schools must adhere to. Our 'Safeguarding Policy' relates mainly to this guidance and how we follow it in our school.
In order to ensure that staff appreciate the safeguarding responsibility that accompanies their job role, we have a clear 'Code of Conduct' and a 'Whistleblowing Policy'. Our 'Safer Recruitment Policy' explains the care and attention we take in order to appoint moral and responsible people to work in our school and our 'Visitors Policy' explains how we monitor all adults working within the building.
Our 'Anti-Bullying' 'Internet Safety' and 'Positive Handling' policies explain how we safeguard our pupils whilst they are within school.
Our SEND policy and equality plans indicate how we safeguard and support vulnerable pupils within our care.
Below are links to online pages where you can find information about keeping your children safe out of school.

Part of keeping your child safe is allowing them to discuss sensitive issues to make sure that they are fully confident in dealing with any situations that arise and have the confidence to raise any issues or questions they have. Our Personal Social and Health Education and Sex and Relationships Education Policy explains this in more detail.
