At Nightingale Primary School we are committed to establishing a safe, nurturing and stimulating learning environment, where the education and welfare of pupils is given the highest priority. The actions we take to prevent harm; to promote wellbeing; to create safe environments; to educate on rights, respect and responsibilities; to respond to specific issues and vulnerabilities all form part of the safeguarding responsibilities of the school.
Safeguarding processes are intended to put in place measures that minimise harm to children. The policies in this section detail those processes, are updated regularly and shared with all staff, governors and volunteers.
Our Welfare Manager, Mrs Hayley Sharp, is responsible for monitoring the Welfare of the children within school. This includes;
Monitoring children’s attendance and liaising with parents who experience difficulties
Overseeing the school’s Welfare Provision, including positive behaviour support, the writing of Individual Behaviour Plans and ELSA support
Liaising with outside agencies such as Primary Behaviour Services and CAMHS
Providing support and advice regarding the use of positive behaviour strategies to staff and parents
Referring parents/carers to other agencies for further support
