Take from our OFSTED report in October 2017: Safeguarding is effective. The leadership team has ensured that all safeguarding arrangements are fit for purpose. Records are detailed and of high quality. The single central record is maintained to a high standard. Governors ask probing questions to ensure that safeguarding is effective. Training is kept up to date and ensures that staff have a good awareness of any local issues and potential problems within the community. Leaders have developed a strong culture of safeguarding within the school. Pupils understand how to keep safe online and say that they feel safe in school. Leaders have made good links with parents and carers as well as external agencies to help them to support vulnerable pupils. Parents and pupils say that behaviour is outstanding and that instances of bullying are very rare. This is because of the school’s strong pastoral support systems. Leaders are aware of the needs and concerns of individual pupils, and parents acknowledge and appreciate this.
The below information and more can be found in our Keeping Children Safe leaflet in the related documents section on the right-hand side of the page and within our safeguarding policies which can be found here.
You can also find some useful information and links for Cyber Bullying and e-Safety on the Telford & Wrekin Safeguarding Children Board's website.
We are committed to creating a happy and safe environment for our children to learn. This page will help you understand how we keep your children safe by telling you:
