    Parents and carers expect the school to provide a safe, secure and caring environment in which their children can flourish. To meet this expectation, the school implements a wide range of measures and policies, including the school’s Safeguarding and Child Protection policies and Health & Safety policy. Details of these policies can be found in the Policies section of the website.
    Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is everyone’s responsibility. Everyone who comes into contact with children and their families and carers has a role to play in safeguarding children. In order to fulfil this responsibility effectively, all professionals should make sure their approach is child-centred. This means that they should consider, at all times, what is in the best interests of the child.  (Keeping Children Safe in Education DfE)

    NSPCC’s Speak out. Stay safe. programme

    As part of our Safeguarding teaching, I am pleased to inform you that we are participating in the NSPCC’s Speak out. Stay safe. Programme this term. Speak out. Stay safe. is a programme for children aged 5-11 which aims to help children understand abuse in all its forms and to recognise the signs of abuse. Children are taught to speak out if they are worried, either to a safe adult or Childline.

    This child friendly programme is aligned with the curriculum and consists of age appropriate virtual assemblies and supporting classroom based activities which we have reviewed, alongside NSPCC volunteer led face to face workshops for children aged 6-7 and 9-11 (Year 2, 5 and 6). The content is delivered in an engaging and interactive way with the help of the NSPCC mascot Buddy. If you would like to know more about the Speak out. Stay safe. programme visit

    Years 1 to 6 teachers will be sharing the NSPCC’s virtual assembly and follow up activities over the coming week. On Thursday 21st March, Years 2, 5 and 6 will participate in face-to-face workshops led by an NSPCC Schools’ Co-ordinator.
