Coronavirus Safeguarding Update 20/3/20
Whilst the school is fully closed, our duty and responsibility to safeguarding our pupils remains. Our regular check-ins with families needing a bit of extra help and support will continue throughout the period of school closure, just as if the school was open. Please do not feel offended if a member of school staff calls or visits to check in with you, and to speak to your child. If you have any safeguarding concerns whilst the school is closed, for your child or for any other pupil from the school, please contact me on 07516914087. Please note that this number must only be used for safeguarding concerns. For any other updates/information please refer to the main website and twitter page.
