As a school and as parents, our greatest priority is keeping our children safe. Information about safeguarding responsibilities and procedures can be found on our Safeguarding pages here.
In order to achieve the very best possible outcomes for themselves and so that they can form and sustain healthy relationships and contribute to society at large, they need to be able to thrive and grow unimpeded by anything or anyone that might cause them harm.
As they grow from babies to toddlers, through childhood and into adolescence, children become more and more independent and need to develop the skills to identify and evaluate risk as well as how to deal with the unexpected. They cannot do this without the help and support of the adults in their lives.
The following video produced by the NSPCC can be used as a talking point with children to help them understand about boundaries and about how to keep themselves safe.
School staff are always available to discuss any concerns parents may have about their child's wellbeing or safety.
