Our school takes safeguarding all our children extremely seriously.

Any adult with access to children is thoroughly checked and vetted.

If you have any safeguarding concerns during out of school hours, weekends or during the school holidays, please contact the headteacher and Designated Safeguarding Lead at 

 The safeguarding of your child is our primary concern.  Below is a  list outlining some of the things that we do to keep children safe and happy in school.


  • Staff are trained in safeguarding.
  • All staff and regualr volunteers have received DBS clearance to work in school. Visitors are asked to show this on arrival.
  • We develop positive relationships with every child so that they are encouraged to tell us if they are worried about anything.
  • We talk to the children about Online Safety and the dangers of the internet.
  • Mrs Gordine and several members of the governing body have taken part in safer recruitment training.
  • We have a safeguarding action plan and Mrs Gordine completes a safeguarding audit annually to ensure that we are effective.
  • Our safeguarding governor is Andrew Cowell and he and the headteacher meet fortnightly to discuss safguarding. 
  • Mrs Moss, the deputy DSL and Mrs Gordine, the DSL, meet once a month to discuss safguarding.
  • We have a secure online safeguarding system, CPOMS, which we use for recording and monitoring safeguarding concerns

Children are closely supervised at all times based on the policies below:

Early Help

Every family has its ups and downs. Being a parent is hard work and there are no instructions. Sometimes, you or your children may need extra support. Please do not feel ashamed of asking for help. Early Help helps you recognise what’s going well for you, where you may benefit from extra help, and who is the best person to work with you and your family to make this happen. This may be through an Early Help Assessment (EHA).

Early help is a way of getting extra support when your family needs it. It is for children and young people of any age. Help can come from all kinds of services and organisations who work together to support your family. 

You will be fully involved in an Early Help Assessment and we will listen to you. It may be that we just talk to you and point you to the support you want. If it’s a bit more complicated, we’ll need to ask you for extra information so that we can get the right information and share it (if you agree) with people who need to know, so we can better understand your circumstances and match up services that would support you. You’ll get a plan showing what you want to achieve and the support you need.



Our Trusted Five


The children have identified their trusted FIVE adults who they can go to if they are worried about anything or feel unsafe. The children know that their 'Trusted Five' will always listen to them, believe them and protect and help them. By identifying the adults they know they can trust, the children are building a safety network which is important for their ongoing safety and protection.
