Keeping Children Safe

Keeping Children Safe

Here at St James Church of England Primary School it is our main priority to ensure pupil safety in all areas of their lives.

In this ever changing world we need to be aware of the impact of the media and the Internet as well as other dangers that children and families may face. Children are taught about how to keep safe in PSHE lessons, ICT lessons, and assemblies and through bespoke lessons to fit new problems as they arise in school or from world events.

As staff we attend local authority briefings and stay aware of key documents such as Keeping Children Safe in Education so that we can continue to do our upmost to ensure children are safe and feel safe. If we ever have concerns a member of the leadership team will contact you and talk through any issues.

We are here to support and listen to any issue that might be putting your family at risk. If you feel that any concern may be impacting on your child please arrange to speak to Miss Cross, Mrs Buckle, Mrs Pritchard or Mrs Hanson.

When appropriate we may use other agencies to support families;

We have a School Nurse who will support families with any Health needs – Our school nurse is here fortnightly on Monday afternoons.  

We may also make a referral to Think Family so that a support worker may assist you in difficult times

In the event of serious concerns we may make a referral to Birmingham Children’s Advice and Support Service (CASS) so that we can get the required support
