"School leaders take safeguarding very seriously and understand the importance of ensuring pupils have a voice and feel comfortable in expressing their opinions and concerns."
If you are concerned about the well-being or safety of a particular child, please do not hesitate to contact Sharon Turley in order to discuss your concerns further. Alternatively, you could also contact either the Local Authority Social Services Department at County Hall or the NSPCC.
Walwayne Court School is committed to ensuring that all staff and adults with responsibility for children's safety and welfare are trained to deal with incidents involving aggressive behaviour and only use physical intervention as a last resort, in line with DfE and LA advice. If used at all, it will be in the context of a respectful, supportive relationship with the pupil and in accordance to the guidance within the Behaviour Policy and the Code of Conduct for Safeguarding of Children, all of which are available for download from below. We will aim to ensure minimal risk of injury to pupils and staff. We actively support the Government's Prevent Agenda to counter radicalism and extremism.
