Safeguarding and Safety
‘Safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility’
Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of our pupils is of the upmost importance at Jeavons Wood. Everyone at school has a role to play in keeping our children safe at all times. All staff are regularly trained in child protection, in line with our Safeguarding policy. Any concerns around a child or family will be dealt with appropriately by the Safeguarding Team & shared on a need to know basis.
The Safeguarding team at Jeavons Wood Primary School are:
Please contact the safeguarding team at school to share any safeguarding concerns you may have and we can advise accordingly. However, during school holidays or if you think that a child may be at immediate risk of harm, please contact children's services by calling 0345 045 5203 (during office hours) or 01733 234 724 (out of hours) and the police, if appropriate, immediately.
In an increasingly digital world it's important that our pupils, parents and carers feel that their information is protected and safe. This is why the Trust has a robust Data Protection Policy, which can be viewed here. You can view our privacy noticies here.
With technology developing at a rapid speed our children are increasingly vulnerable as younger and younger they can access the internet in an ever growing number of ways.
To filter the use of the internet in school we use LIghtSpeed Filtering and we also teach the children how to keep safe on line, using Purple Mash. However, it is important that parents and carers know the dangers and also teach them e-safety at home.
Please use the links to navigate your way around our Online Safety information. It's always worth keeping an eye on the school newsletter as we aim to include snippets of support related to Online Safety, as they come up. As always, please do speak to a member of staff if you need advice or you are worried about something.
Below are links to online resources and guides related to online safety.
These will provide you with a wealth of information and enable you to report any undesirable sites you find.
