Safeguarding is Everyone’s Responsibility

The welfare and safety of children in paramount.  Every adult in our school community is expected to have a responsibility to safeguard children.

What is Safeguarding?

  • Protecting children from maltreatment
  • Preventing impairment of children’s mental and physical health or development
  • Making sure children grow up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care
  • Taking action to enable all children to have the best outcomes

Early Help

Every family goes through challenging times at some point. Early help means working with you and your family so that small problems done become big problems.  Early help is for everybody, for families with children and young people of any age.  And, it’s your choice whether to have it or not.

 Why would I want early help?

There are lots of reasons why people look for early help.  It could be that you are worried about your child’s health, development or behaviour, or how they’re doing at school, or perhaps because you are caring for a disabled child.  It may be that you are worried about money or housing and how that is affecting your family.  Maybe your child or your family is affected by domestic abuse, drugs, alcohol or crime.  Perhaps your child is a carer for other people, or maybe you have had a bereavement in the family that has made life a real challenge.

Please speak to Mrs Bloomfield or Mrs Kerr if you would like to know more.
