Our school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. We expect all staff, visitors and volunteers to share this commitment.
If you have any concerns regarding the safeguarding of any of our pupils please contact one of our Designated Safeguarding Leads: Mrs Sarginson, Mrs Hill or Mrs Dixon
Please see the safeguarding section of our website under Policies > Safeguarding.
Article 12 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) says that children and young people should have a say in decisions that affect their lives.
A school council can provide a meaningful way in which pupils can voice their opinions and have their views taken into account in decisions which impact upon them.
A new School Council is elected each year, with every class from Y1 to Y6 nominating representatives. Each Year group has a link Year 6 pupil to work alongside the elected class representative. The School Council meet with Mrs Sarginson. This group speaks on behalf of the whole school and helps to make our great school greater, listening to the views of all children.
We value the opinions of our pupils and the School Council gives pupils a forum to share these opinions with the Headteacher and other members of staff.
