Your child matters!
A child not in school by end of registration (9am) is reported to the office and, if not in school by 9.30am, a text message is sent requesting urgent information about the child's whereabouts. We are grateful for your support in telephoning in non-attendance.
Our home-time arrangements are designed to ensure children are collected by an agreed adult. Children are well supervised throughout the school day.
We undertake Risk Assessments for classrooms, activities and all external visits and ensure ratios of adults and children fulfil legal requirements. All staff and adults working with the children are DBS checked. Mrs Cador is the school's Designated Safeguarding Lead and Mrs Charlesworth is the deputy DSL. Mrs Wise also has been trained as a Designated Safeguarding Lead so that there is always someone at the end of the phone with safeguarding Level 2 training. All employees are employed with safer recruitment as part of the recruitment process.
Children are taught how to keep safe in and out of school and online.
PCSO Sharon Jones visits school regularly to talk to the children and supports school in ensuring the school community is safe. All Y5 children receive fire safety talks — 'Smoke Buster' — from the Fire Service. Computer safety (online-safety) and cyber-bullying are covered as part of the curriculum and in assemblies. We understand parental concerns regarding internet safety; here is a link to CEOP (Government's Child Protection agency) which offers support on how to keep your child safe online. Our parents are invited to the Nantwich Educational Partnership on-safety parent meetings, which are hosted regularly.

Parents are asked not to post photographs and videos of children in school or at school events on any social media site.
School does not tolerate any incidents of prejudice. We have rigorous procedures in place to deal with any incident of this.
Children are encouraged to share any worries or concerns by talking to any adult in school; putting a note on the Head Teacher's desk or colouring their daily 'Colour Monster' black or blue.
Children's well-being and safety are paramount to us. Please read through our policies and our well-being section on the website for further information.
