Safeguarding

We all have a duty to safeguard and promote the welfare of children.

If you have any concerns about the health or safety of a child at school—or feel something may be troubling them—you should share this information with a member of staff straight away.

 

Safeguarding Releases

If you think the matter is very serious and may be related to a child protection concern—e.g., physical, sexual or emotional abuse, or neglect—you must talk to a member of the safeguarding team immediately. Ask the school office to find them regarding a confidential and urgent matter.

Any allegation about someone who works with children in a paid or voluntary capacity must be reported directly to the Headteacher or Safeguarding team. If the allegation involves the Headteacher of Safeguarding team, it must be reported directly to the chair of the Governing Body.

Policies and Procedures

We follow the Safeguarding Sheffield Children policies and procedures. You can view them on the Safeguarding Sheffield Children website.

Online Safety

The internet can be great fun. You can chat you your friends, play games and learn about lots of new things.

Sometimes things happen which can make you upset. People may say mean things which make you feel sad, or you may see something that you don’t like. If this happens, you must remember that it is not your fault.

If something bad does happen, you should speak to a grown up and make a CEOP report; there is a button you can press at the bottom of every page on our website.
