We all have a statutory duty to safeguard and promote the welfare of children.
If you have any concerns about the health and safety of a child at this school or feel that something may be troubling them, you should share this information with an appropriate member of staff straight away.

Safeguarding Policies and Information
Our Safeguarding Policy has been developed in accordance with the principles established by the Children Acts 1989 and 2004; the Education Act 2002; and in line with government publications the Teachers' Standards 2012, 'Working Together to Safeguard Children' 2013 and 'Keeping Children Safe in Education' 2021.
We also have a Whistle Blowing Policy which outlines the action to take should you have any safeguarding concerns.
For more information on keeping children safe, the NSPCC website is particularly useful resource with lots of information, guidance and advice on e-safety and keeping children safe. Their 'Talking Pants' page teaches children important message, like their body belongs to them and they should tell an adult if they are worried or upset.
Early Help is about identifying needs within families early on, in proactively offering preventative support before the problems become more complex or entrenched. Those coming into contact with families all have a responsibility towards identifying emerging needs as early as possible and responding to them. If you need support or you know a family who do, please visit the Early Help Family Support website using the link below.
