We have a statutory duty to ‘safeguard and promote the welfare of children’. If you have any concerns about the health and safety of a child at this school or feel that something may be troubling them, you should share this information with an appropriate member of staff straight away.
Do not worry if you may be reporting matters which seem small – we would rather you tell us something which does turn out to be minor than miss a worrying situation.
However, if you think this matter is very serious or may be related to a child protection issue then you must inform one of the people below as soon as possible. If you are unsure how to contact them please contact the school office on 01384816930 alternatively you can contact the following numbers:
MASH Team/Multi Agency Safeguarding Hub: 03005550050
Emergency Duty Team: 03005558574 (Our of Hours Numbers)
Dudley Early Help
The revised Early Help Strategy was endorsed by the Children and Young Peoples Alliance Board in April 2018. This strategy sets out the pathway for Early Help in Dudley and will ensure that the appropriate level of support is put in place for our children, young people and families. Investing in our children and young people now will ensure we build strong, resilient and thriving communities in the future.
How does our Curriculum support pupils' developing understanding of how to keep themselves safe?
Since September 2017, we have introduced '3D PSHE' which is a curriculum that is designed to enable pupils' to be taught about key safeguarding issues such as Anti-Bullying, E-Safety and Relationship Education in a safe environment as well as lots of other key aspects. Below is an outline of some of the curriculum coverage to give you a flavour of what we learn about in these sessions. For further information please contact the school office.
