Safeguarding Governor: Mrs Polly Harris
The school has a clear policy on child protection and safeguarding in line with Bracknell Forest Council. Any concerns can be reported to any of the above staff members. We have close working relationships with other professionals, including Health and Social Services.
If an issue is raised about a child who appears to be neglected, ill treated or not thriving, we have a duty to clarify the situation. We will contact parents/ carers to find out whether there are any problems that can be dealt with. However, in some circumstances the law requires us to take action to protect a child from abuse or neglect by contacting social services without first informing parents or carers.
We recognise that all families have times of difficulty and may need some support. We encourage you to let us know if you need help, and we will do our best to put you in contact with the right people to help and support you.
We believe that an open and honest partnership with families is vital. Problems at home often show themselves in school and vice versa. Communication is essential so that we can support you and your children. Please let us know if events at home might affect your child’s behaviour and emotional well being in school.
