OUR CHILDREN’S SAFEGUARDING BOARD: THE SHIELD CHILDREN

We take children’s behaviour and safety utterly seriously.  We have established our Children’s Safeguarding Board, who call themselves the Shield Children.  Their rationale:

‘We have researched other Children’s Safeguarding Board’s and found they have different names. As a result, we have come up with a new name for our Board which is ‘Shield Children’. This idea came from children holding shields protecting from things that might be mean.

Also we have decided on a new Motto. It took a lot of discussion and inspiration but at last we came up with, ‘Safety is the key between you and me’. The idea is that the keys are from our school logo which are the keys that Jesus gave to Saint Peter (the keys to heaven).’

This is their first newsletter:

MONTHLY GOSPEL VALUES

Our School Council have decided that they would like to dedicated each month to one of our Gospel Values, which form part of our overarching vision, behaviour policy and curriculum rationale.  This also helps keep children safe, by learning how to be good, kind citizens.

Gospel Values

 

During Anti-Bullying Week in November our Children’s Safeguarding Board delivered an assembly to the whole school. We also distributed ‘A parent’s guide to Bullying’, a leaflet which was purchased by our PTFA.  Please click on the link below to view the letter that went out to parents.
