Health & Safety

In January 2017 the WES Health and Safety Advisor inspected our school.  The report was detailed and very positive, the overall inspection findings were that

‘Health and Safety appeared fully embedded into the school’s day to day operations with significant progress made since the last inspection in 2013.   All staff and pupils should be commended for their excellent housekeeping throughout the school.’

Staying Safe

E-Safety Notice

Someone has created a fake profile for you on a website, full of nasty comments and horrible pictures.

What should you do?

You should not delete it.  You should tell and adult and find out who has created the fake profile.

 

E-Safety

 

"The Internet and related technologies are powerful tools, which open up new prospects for communication and collaboration. Education is embracing these new technologies as they bring with them fresh opportunities for both teachers and learners. To use these technologies effectively requires an awareness of the benefits and risks, the development of new skills, and an understanding of their appropriate and effective use both in and outside of the classroom.”

DfES, eStrategy 2005

 

Does your child use:

  1. a mobile phone
  2. the Internet
  3. a social networking site such as Facebook, You Tube, Bebo or Twitter
  4. MSN, Skype or other instant messages

As parents and carers, our natural desire is to keep our children safe.  From learning to cross the road, ride a bike or swim, parents have to teach, guide and support their children - the online world is no different.

To help adults keep up with the fast pace of the ever changing world of technology, Warwickshire ICT Development Service are offering guidance, giving E-Safety advice for Parents and Carers.

Safe Guarding

Under the Education Act 2002 (Section 175), schools must make arrangements to safeguard and promote the welfare of children. 

Parents and carers should know that the law (Children Act 1989) requires all school staff to pass on information which gives rise to a concern about a child's welfare, including risk from neglect, physical, emotional or sexual abuse.  The staff will seek, in general, to discuss any concerns with the parents/carer, and where possible, seek their consent to a referral to Social Care.  This will only be done where such discussion will not place the child at increased risk of significant harm.  Schools will seek advice from Social Care when they have reasonable cause to suspect a child may be suffering or likely to suffer significant harm.  Occasionally, concerns are passed on which are later shown to be unfounded.  Parent/carers will appreciate that the designated person for child protection was carrying our their responsibilities in accordance with the law and acting in the best interests of all children.

Our Designated Child Protection Staff are:

Julie Miles - Head Teacher

Matthew Parker - Deputy Head

Anoushka Clarkson - SEND and Inclusion Manager

Jane McArthur

Gayle Smith
