"Pupils are very well cared for and feel safe.  Safeguarding procedures are reliable and robust ensuring all staff are effectively trained and checked for their suitability to work with children."
Ofsted 2012


Your child's safety and welfare is of paramount importance, overriding all other considerations.  Schools are legally required to follow set procedures and the LA requires the Head Teacher/Designated Senior Person (DSP) for Child Protection to report any obvious or suspected cases of child abuse, which includes non-accidental injury, severe physical neglect, emotional abuse and/or sexual abuse.  

This procedure is intended to protect children at risk.  The Child Protection Policy can be downloaded from our Policies section of the website and is also available from the school office on request.  The Designated Safeguarding Lead for Child Protection is Sharon Turley, Head Teacher, and the Deputy Designated Safeguarding Leads are Rebecca Humphreys and Kate McWade.

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
