We want our children to be happy at school, and be safe, confident, caring and thoughtful of others.
We want each child to know that they are unique and special and are valued as as for who they are as what they achieve.
However, we are not perfect all the time. So how do we deal with problems?
Any problems that arise in the classroom, in the first instance will be dealt with by the class teacher. The special and close relationship of trust that a primary teacher and the class develop for each other, especially in a Christian environment, enables most problems to be put right. Children's needs and emotions, if under special stress, are sensitively met but we do have high expectations of conduct and behaviour.
Problems that occur at playtime are dealt with by the teacher on duty or by the Lunchtime Supervisory staff, who may call upon senior staff at lunchtime if necessary.
We encourage the children to to respect and care for each other, and do so in a way do so in a way which exemplifies what we teach; forgiveness, fairness and understanding.
If you feel that there is any particular problem, it is very important that you make contact with us. In the first instance you may wish to contact the class teacher. Mr Molyneux (Headteacher) can also be available to meet with you.
Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a child's welfare.
If you have any concerns regarding a pupil or member of staff, please report it to Mr Molyneux, our Designated Person for Child Protection or Mrs Velayudhan our Deputy Designated Person for Child Protection. Members of the public can make anonymous referrals to Social Care Direct. They will deal with your concerns and can offer advice and support on what to do. The telephone number is 0345 8503 503.
