November Safeguarding Newsletter...
Nothing is more important to us than the safety and welfare of our pupils. We take rigorous steps to ensure that children stay safe and do not come to any harm. We work closely with parents / carers and a range of professional external agencies in order to secure this.
If you have any concerns, no matter how small they may seem, about the safety or welfare of any child, please contact the school’s Designated Lead for Child Protection, Teresa Allport, Headteacher or Samantha Bridgewood, Deputy Head Teacher or if your concern is around a child in our Early Years contact Lacie Faux, Assistant Headteacher EYFS Lead.
Safeguarding is about protecting children, young people and adults at risk from abuse or neglect. We hope this website provides you with information about a whole load of issues.
However, if you are worried or scared about the way you or someone you know is being treated don't bottle it up, tell someone you trust or:

Top Tips For Staying Safe Online!
Always ask a grown up before you use the internet. They can help you find the best thing to do.
Don’t tell strangers where you live, your phone number or where you go to school. Only your friends and family need to know that.
Don’t send pictures to people you don’t know. You don’t want strangers looking at photos of you, your friends or your family.
Tell a grown up if you feel scared or unhappy about anything.
Don't Meet Up Never arrange to meet an online friend because it can be dangerous. No matter how well you think you know people, they might be pretending.
You can also call ‘Childline’ on: 08001111 to talk to someone who can help.
