Safeguarding

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
As part of the schools continued support of promoting e-Safety, parents are encouraged to read the documents on this page. Here there are useful suggestions for how to keep your children safe while on the internet. This especially includes use of chat rooms and social networks where anyone could gain access to identifiable information about our children if anyone publically posts a careless message. Although there can be advantages of using social networks like Facebook, the school has decided that the children’s safety is paramount. If you have any e-safety concerns,  please contact The Bellbird School who will advise you on the best way forward.
