The health, safety and well-being of every child is of paramount importance to us. We listen to our pupils and take seriously what they tell us. Our aim is that children enjoy & achieve in their time as pupils at this school. Our safeguarding provision involves:
- Establishing and maintaining an environment where children feel secure, are encouraged to talk, and are listened to.
- Ensuring that children know that there are adults in the school whom they could approach if they are worried.
- Including opportunities in the curriculum for children to develop the skills they need to recognise and stay safe from harm or abuse.
We want to work in partnership with you to help your child to achieve their full potential. Click below to find out more about people in school & and agencies out of school who can support children and families.
If we have any concerns as to a child’s welfare, we will endeavour to be as open and honest with you and to meet with you to discuss the matter. The school will seek to work with parents to address potential child welfare issues e.g. to address concerns with attendance, to discuss diet/nutrition concerns, to seek clarification over bruising or injuries.
We will, wherever possible and appropriate, inform parents of any decision on the art of the school to seek advice from or make a referral to the Children, Young People & Family Services. However, if we are unable to inform parents directly, this will not prevent a referral being made. On rare occasions, there are circumstances in which concerns for the welfare of a child should not be shared with parents and a direct referral would be made to protect any of our pupils.
The procedures which we follow have been laid down by the Cornwall & Isles of Scilly Safeguarding Children Partnership and the school has adopted a Child Protection Policy in line with this for the safety of all. For more information click on http://www.safechildren-cios.co.uk/
If you want to know more about our procedures or the policy, please speak to the headteacher or your child's class teacher. Mrs Giblett (headteacher) is the school’s Designated Safeguarding Person.
