Our priority is to ensure our pupils are kept safe and know how to keep themselves away from harm.
We have two Designated Safeguarding Officers: Mrs Emma Hart Dyke (Head Teacher) and Mr Chris Marston (Deputy Head Teacher).
Our Governors with responsibility for Safeguarding are: Mrs Helen Smith (Chair) and Mrs Marion Williams (Foundation Governor)
We use the PANTS guidance from the NSPCC to help children understand how to keep safe.
They learn that:
P - Privates are private
A - Always remember your body belongs to you
N - No means no
T - Talk about secrets that upset you
S - Speak up, someone can help
The guide below is to support parents when having those tricky conversations with their children about their body, keeping safe and what to do if they are made to feel worried or uncomfortable.
It starts with a conversation:
Talking to children about what they are doing online is a great way to understand the internet. It allows us to be involved in another part of children's lives which at times can be quite private. We also get a great insight into children’s online behaviour, we can see what’s new, what’s good/bad and in turn we can make it our duty to research further on the back of these conversations. We’re also more likely to spot if something is going wrong online. Take the opportunity to engage with your child to understand more about the internet.
Our IT curriculum includes an element on E-Safety each term.
