Safeguarding and Child Protection
The school works in partnership with parents to support children in every way possible. However, the welfare and safety of children is paramount and referrals to Social Care can be, and are made, in the interests of our pupils.
'The school has amended its Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy in light of COVID19 school closure arrangements. A copy of this amendment is available on request.'
Our Designated Safeguarding Leads are Ms Merel (Inclusion Co-ordinator), Mrs Bannister-Palmer (Acting Assistant Headteacher) and Mrs Pycroft (Senior Assistant Headteacher)
Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead for Kids Club is Mrs S Bell (Kids Club Manager)

Health, Safety and Security
The health and safety of our children is of the utmost priority. There are a range of security guidelines and it is asked that all children, visitors and parents follow them.
All visitors to the school must enter through our buzzer entry system and report to the school office, once the school day has started.
To keep everyone safe, we request that adults and children do not ride bikes or scooters in the school playground, that dogs are not brought on to school premises and that parents are extremely careful when using local roads at the beginning and end of the school day. Our desert island play area is only for the use of pupils when supervised by staff during the school day.
