Our safeguarding commitment

Our school places a great deal of emphasis on keeping our pupils safe and it is a central part of our vision statement. All adults in school are fully vetted to check they are safe to work with children and our staff receive regular safeguarding training to ensure they are up to date with the latest guidance and statutory requirements. Our safeguarding and child protection policy sets out the many ways in which all staff are vigilant to possible safeguarding concerns and how we work with a range of agencies, including children's social care, to ensure we fully meet our safeguarding duties.

Online safety

We understand that children can face many risks when they are online- whether that is on a computer, games console, phone or any other online device. We teach our children about these risks from an early age and help them to consider the ways in which they can minimise them in order that their (and others) experiences are safe and happy ones.

In addition to our on-going e-safety lessons, we celebrate safer internet day across the school each year and try to involve the whole school community as much as possible. This year, the theme was "Create, connect and share respect- a better internet starts with you".

Other very useful websites are:‚Äč

The following resources are also really helpful, especially if you want to talk through some of the safer internet messages with your chidlren.
