Safeguarding or Home Support
Please find below a policy outlining school's safeguarding response to COVID-19
School safeguarding support
The safeguarding team have designed a Pastoral Plan to ensure that all vulnerable students are safeguarded during this time. The implementation of the plan will include safeguarding staff contacting some parents by telephone or making home visits during the period of closure.
We are also making the following email address available for pupils, parents or carers to use if they have any safeguarding concerns or emergencies during this period of closure; firstname.lastname@example.org
Please use this email if you have a safeguarding concern about any of our pupils or if you need support and guidance from a safeguarding member of staff. Leave your name and contact number alongside details of your concern.
Please note that staff will access this email on weekdays from 8.30am to 4.00pm and it will not be accessible to staff during the Easter Holiday period from 3.00pm on Friday 3rd April to 8.30am on Monday 20th April 2020.
