Coronavirus (COVID-19) – Safeguarding Statement

 

SAFEGUARDING STATEMENT

Our commitment to our pupils’ safety remains one of our top priorities during these unprecedented times.

 

Pupil well-being and safety are vitally important to us and during the foreseeable time when the school is not running in the normal way, we remain absolutely committed to keeping children safe. If you have any concerns regarding the safeguarding of children, please contact us in the following ways:

 

Phone: 07729 515994 to speak to the Designated Safeguarding Lead

 

For all other safeguarding / Family support enquiries – please e-mail ht@st-marks.hants.sch.uk and a member of the safeguarding team will endeavour to respond as soon as they are able to.

 

If there is an emergency and you believe a child is in immediate danger, you must call 999 without delay.

 

If your concern is urgent, please contact the Hampshire Children’s Services (8.30am-5pm):

The School Nurse makes regular check up visits to school.  Parents are always invited to attend these medicals and discuss problems with the School Nurse.

If children are ill in school we try to contact the parents at home or at work by telephone, therefore it is important to keep us informed of any change in contact details.

If a child is going to be absent from school for the day we ask the parents to telephone before school begins to let us know the reason for the absence and the likely duration.

The office staff are willing to administer medicines prescribed to your child by a doctor but ask you to fill in a consent form detailing the dosage required.  All medication will be kept in the school office.

 

If children are injured at school, they will be attended to by a member of staff who has received First Aid training.  If there is concern about any injury, parents will be contacted.  It is our policy to inform parents if a child has a head injury of any kind.

 

The school have 3 First Aid Trained staff and 2 paediatric First Aid trained staff.
