Keeping Children Safe


Everybody has a responsibility to keep children safe from harm and abuse.  Abuse is identified in 5 ways:


  • Emotional Abuse is psychological abuse such as threatening a child, making fun of them, making them feel unloved or inadequate.  Witnessing physical or emotional abuse to others in the home can also be harmful to a child.
  • Physical Abuse is deliberately physically hurting or injuring a child.
  • Sexual Abuse is when a child is forced to witness or be involved in sexual activities.
  • Neglect is the failure to provide for a child's basic needs, whether it be adequate food, clothing, hygiene, supervision or shelter that is likely to result in the serious impairment of a child's health or development.
  • Exploitation is the intentional ill-treatment, manipulation or abuse of power and control over a child or young person; to take selfish or unfair advantage of a child or young person or situation, for personal gain.




School should be a safe place for children, free from harm.  Children will be told who they can talk to should they be worried or anxious about anything.  Posters of this information are up around the school.

Anybody working in school will receive child protection training form the Designated Teacher for Child Protection.  All adults working in school are police checked.  You will be given a copy of the school Child Protection policy every other year.




It is your job to keep school up to date on your child's medical and educational needs.  If there are changes to your personal details such as; address or phone numbers, you must inform school immediately.  You must make clear arrangements for the collection of your child from school and make sure your child is fully aware of these.  Should these change you should contact the school office ( 91 460513)  to make us and your child aware.  No child will be allowed to go home in a taxi unless an adult is present in the taxi with them.


School are here to support you and if you have any concerns you should contact your child's teacher or Head of Key Stage through the school office.
