The Headteacher, class teachers, classroom assistants and welfare assistants are responsible for the well being of the children in their care. Parents who are concerned about their child for whatever reason, should contact school. We are here to help and most problems are readily solved as a result of a chat and the bringing of problems or anxieties to the class teacher's attention. If we are concerned about your child's work or behaviour, we will contact you. Education is very much a partnership between school and home and we value parental support and involvement in the learning process.
We are part of the Lancashire Anti-Bullying Schools campaign and have adopted the LEA's policy on anti-bullying and anti-racism.
Due to the day-to-day contact with children, schools are particularly well placed to observe outward signs of abuse, changes in behaviour or failure to develop. Parents should be aware, therefore, that where it appears to a member of school staff that a child may have been abused, the school is required, as part of the local Child Protection Procedures, to report their concern to the Social Services Department immediately.
