The following comments were made by inspectors following a review of our procedures in 2014:
“Safeguarding is taken very seriously by staff at all levels. The systems the school has are very robust. For example, the vetting of staff and checks on visitors are secure; the single central record contains all adults in contact with pupils; governors are checked as well; child protection training is up to date for all staff; staff responsible for safeguarding monitor safeguarding information well, including incident patterns and the use of the Internet by pupils being supported by the medical needs teaching service.
Good examples of the school responding well to emerging safeguarding issues are the new policy on cyber-bullying in response to occasional instances that have occurred in pupils’ homes and staff developing guidelines for parents in the use of the Internet.”
