Great importance is attached to the development of social and emotional skills. Children are encouraged to be self-disciplined in their behaviour, to build good relationships and to develop a sense of responsibility towards the needs and feelings of others and of their environment.
Our school feels it is of the utmost importance to have good systems in place for protecting children and safeguarding their welfare, throughout all the activities which the school undertakes.
Safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility. If you are worried about a child or family, it is your duty to talk to someone and get help. If you have any concerns, we encourage you to contact the school and staff will follow the right channels to provide support. If you prefer to discuss concerns with someone external, you can contact the South Team Locality and Community Support Service (LCSS) in Abingdon on 0345 2412608 LCSS.South@oxfordshire.gov.uk or for an immediate concern about harm to a child contact the Multi-Agency Safeguarding Hub (MASH) on 0345 050 7666.
Childline is also a national counselling service provided by the NSPCC for young people: https://www.childline.org.uk/get-support/contacting-childline/
