Care of Children
We aim to offer a secure and encouraging environment where children’s spiritual, moral and cultural development is enhanced through delivery of the curriculum in general and through our PSHE programme in particular.
With the exception of break and lunchtime, each member of staff is responsible for the care of children in their class. Members of staff share responsibility for the care of children at breaktimes. At lunchtimes the Senior Midday Supervisor, together with the Headteacher, take responsibility for the children’s welfare. When accidents occur they are dealt with by a member of the school staff in the first instance. If further action is required parents will be contacted. Should you have any worries or concerns about your child in school you should contact your child’s teacher in the first instance. The Headteachers are also available (by prior arrangement if possible) to discuss any more serious concerns.
Parents should be aware that the school is required to take any reasonable action to safeguard its pupils. In cases where the school has reason to be concerned that a child may be subject to ill- treatment, neglect or other forms of abuse, the Headteacher is obliged to follow the Child Protection procedures established by the Lincolnshire County Council and Lincolnshire Children’s Safeguarding Board and inform the Children’s Services of the concern.
When the school refers a concern about a child to the Children’s Services, it is not accusing anyone but requesting that further investigation takes place to establish whether a child is at risk.

Health & Safety
The Health & Safety leader, Julia Brooks our School Business Manager makes regular inspections together with a designated member of the Governing Body. Reports are made to the Headteacher who ensures any necessary action is taken. The school complies with all national and local Health & Safety Regulations.
We recognise that parents, carers and family members may wish to record events such as school plays, sports days etc to celebrate their child’s achievements. However it is important that such records remain private and for family and personal use only. Please be very careful if putting your children’s images on the internet, including on social networking sites. If you wish to put images online, and these images contain children who are not part of your family, you must first obtain the permission of parents or carers of the other children concerned.
For further information about taking photographs in school and how the Data Protection Act does not apply to photographs or films being taken for personal use by family and friends please see https://ico.org.uk/for-the-public/schools/photos/
Any objections to this policy should be addressed to the Headteacher.
