Child Protection & Safeguarding
The Designated Safeguarding Lead at All Saints’ is Mrs Woodall. In her absence any information should be passed on to the Deputy Safeguarding Lead, Mrs Painter.
We care for each individual child as though he/she is our own child. We want the child to be loved and cared for, to grow in self-confidence and self-discipline and also to develop a sense of responsibility. We actively encourage parents to be partners with the school in the education of the children.
Before your child starts school, parents are invited to informal meetings to get to know the school, the teachers and what the children will be learning. Parents and children come to school enjoy a school dinner (or sandwiches).
After a few weeks in school, parents are invited to talk to their child’s teacher about how the child is settling in and what progress has been achieved. The learning journey of the pupil begins at this meeting and is developed throughout the seven years at this Primary School.
At All Saints’ children are rewarded and encouraged both privately and publicly for their efforts in all areas of school life. Assemblies and Awards Presentations are arranged to celebrate achievements.
A variety of programmes of work are used in school to teach children how to keep safe and show positive and practical ways of dealing with potentially dangerous situations and cover the following areas:
- Road Safety
- Rail Safety
- Water Safety
- Personal Safety
- When and how to say ‘NO’
- Internet Safety – Think you know
On entering school your child is met at the door by a member of staff. They are fully supervised during the day and accompanied by their teacher to the playground at the end of the school day. When your child is in school, the first point of contact is the class teacher. Your child’s teacher can be seen at the end of the school day or at a mutually convenient time arranged through the school office.
