Safeguarding

Thorpe Primary School is committed to ensuring the welfare and safety of all children in school. We aim to create an ethos where children and parents feel valued, listened to and understood. Children are made aware that their safety is important.

We will always take a considered and sensitive approach in order that we can support all of our pupils. A senior member of the school’s leadership team is designated to take lead responsibility for safeguarding.

Our policy is available publicly and is linked to our Positive Behaviour Policy, Equality and Diversity Policy, Health and Safety Policy, E-safety Policy and Anti-bullying Policy.

Training is undertaken by all staff to deal with safeguarding matters.

Bringing Your Child to School

Supervision before and after the school day is the responsibility of parents. We do recommend that all children are accompanied to and from school by a responsible adult. Please keep your child and siblings under close supervision on the school premises. Being punctual in the morning is very important as it ensures that your child has a really good start to the day.

If you are unavoidably delayed at the end of the day, please contact the school. Your child can then be reassured and supervised in the office area until you arrive.

For Health & Safety purposes, dogs are not allowed on school premises. The entire school and site is a designated no smoking area.

Pastoral Care

Each class teacher is responsible for the general welfare of the pupils in their class.

Please inform them if you are worried about your child or if they have an emotional or physical problem. Problems which persist, or are of a more serious nature, can be discussed with the Headteacher. If appropriate we have a directory of agencies who might be able to assist with family problems and concerns.
