Safeguarding

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 Caroline Fitzgerald (SENCO) and Mr Chris Marston (Deputy Head Teacher).

Our Governors with responsibility for Safeguarding are: Mrs Helen Smith (Chair) hsmith156@suttonmail.org and Mrs Marion Williams (Foundation Governor) mwilliams211@suttonmail.org

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.

Public Health England Guidance

for parents and carers on supporting children and young people’s mental health and wellbeing during the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.

The guidance contains several helpful sections for the wellbeing of young people in quarantine. They include details of how children and young people of different ages may react to stress and addresses specifically the needs of SEND pupils.

Communication is vital; the acknowledgement of loss, honesty of the unknown, recognition of anxieties, a focus on the positive and emphasising that change is a part of life can help support good mental health:

To support our school’s vision and ethos; the school identity is rich and secure.

  • Seven Days of Kindness Calendar - it can be adapted to represent one of our values
  • Kindness Matters – Mental Health Foundation animation promotes the theme of this year’s Mental Health Awareness Week, including being kind to one’s self.

Reflective moments built into a curriculum will teach emotional literacy and help everyone think about their feelings and acknowledge their anxiety. It’s best to have a few strategies to release a feeling of empowerment rather than a huge number that can then feel overwhelming.
