Road Safety

Each year,  Junior Road Safety Officers (JRSOs) are elected from Year 6.

 

In 2018-2019, our Y6 JRSO's are: Eli and Marty

 

Thanks to Mr Leigh Carter of Fassi UK Ltd, generous funding, is provided to enable the JRSOs to plan and deliver activities to promote and reinforce safety when out and about, to both KS1 and KS2. Over the last few terms, JRSO activities have included: counting traffic passing the school gates at home time, arranging whole school hi-vis clothing days and organising road-safety themed wordsearches. Taking part is often rewarded with a hi-vis badge, wristband or bike tag! Often, messages of road safety are promoted to the whole school through an assembly delivered by the JRSOs.

The Junior Road Safety scheme is supported by 'roadsafety warwickshire'.

March 2018

Children in Years 2 and 4 enjoyed a workshop all about road safety (see photos below). 

NSPCC resources

The NSPCC have some very useful free resources to keep children safe from sexual abuse. Their 'PANTS' guide teaches children that their body belongs to them and them alone. You can find out more here. This 'Underwear Rule' is a simple way to keep children safe from sexual abuse - without using scary words or even mentioning sex.

Nothing is more important than keeping our children safe. Our Safeguarding Policy is summarised in a handy leaflet here.

 

 

OUR DUTY UNDER THE EDUCATION ACT 2002

NOTE TO ALL PARENTS AND CARERS:

‘Under the Education Act 2002 (Section 175 for maintained schools/Section 157 for academies/free/independent schools), schools must make arrangements to safeguard and promote the welfare of children.  Parents/carers should know that the law (Children Act 1989) requires all school staff to pass on information which gives rise to a concern about a child’s welfare, including risk from neglect, physical, emotional or sexual abuse. 

Staff will seek, in general, to discuss any concerns with the parent/carer and discuss the need to make a referral to Children’s Social Care if that is considered necessary.  This will only be done where such discussion will not place the child at increased risk of significant harm or cause undue delay.  The school will seek advice from Children’s Social Care when they have reasonable cause to suspect a child may be suffering or likely to suffer significant harm.

  Occasionally, concerns are passed on which are later found to be unfounded.  Parents/carers will appreciate that the school’s Designated Safeguarding Lead carries out their responsibilities in accordance with the law and acts in the best interests of all children.’
