Online Safety & Safeguarding


Safeguarding Information for Visitors

All staff and visitors alike have a responsibility for safeguarding our pupils. To ensure this we ask the following:

  • Switch off your mobile phone/device and store it in your bag.
  • In the event you do need to use your mobile phone or camera enabled device, please check with the teacher you are working with and do so in an area that is not accessed by the children - this includes corridors.
  • Do not take pictures, videos or sound recordings of any pupils unless you have sought permission from the school.  These should never be taken on personal devices.
  • If you are working with a child, please ensure the class teacher is aware of this, where you are working and approximately how long for.
  • If you are working with a child, please do so in a space that is open, has an open door or is visible to others through a window.
  • If you have a concern about a child please pass this on to the child’s class teacher, who will then follow our safeguarding procedures. If they are not available, please speak with one of our Designated Safeguarding Officers – Heather Byrne (Pastoral LSA), Clare Woodward (Headteacher), Louise Eaton (Deputy Headteacher).
  • If you have a concern about another adult in school, please ask to speak to a Designated Safeguarding Officer.
  • Always share concerns with school staff, no matter how small they may appear, and don’t keep them to yourself.
  • If a child says something to you that you think could be a safeguarding concern, act as above, and if possible write down what was said immediately. Listen to the child, do not question them or promise them that it will remain confidential between the two of you.

Online Safety Workshop

All children in school were involved in child friendly, age appropriate workshops led by The 2 Johns (two former police officers).  They spoke to the children about how to keep themselves safe online and discussed with them the games they play, the apps they use, and how to stay safe within them.

In the evening we held a parents' event.  The aim of the evening was to change parents' perspective of what their children's lives look like online and to  challenge many of their thought processes when trying to keep children safe from today’s hidden harms.
