The safety of our pupils is paramount; if a child does not feel safe then they are not able to make the most of their time in school.
We teach the children how to keep themselves safe in a range of situations including on the road, on the internet and with regard to a variety of potentially dangerous situations and substances.
We work with colleagues in the emergency services and other organisations to offer children a real insight into hazards they may face out of school.
We undertake regular checks on the security and safety of the school grounds and buildings to ensure our pupils are able to learn in a protected environment. Mrs Beckett (the Headteacher), and Mrs Hird (Deputy Headteacher) are the Designated Safeguarding Leads (DSL) for the school and all staff are trained in relevant Safeguarding procedures.
If we have any concerns about a child we will share them with the appropriate authorities, in accordance with the Child Protection Policy, a copy of which is available from the office or on our website.
Below are a number of contact details and links for your information.
