Policies and Keeping Safe

Child Protection

At Weston-under-Penyard CofE Primary School the health, safety and wellbeing of every child is our top priority. We expect all staff, governors and volunteers to share this commitment to safeguarding our pupils. Our child protection policy outlines our guidance.

Keeping Children Safe in Education 2022

Many of you may know that the Government has put into place something called the ‘Prevent’ strategy. Schools, including primary schools, are required to include this as part of their safeguarding procedures and so I am including a link to a pamphlet for parents for you to see. In practice, for us, this means challenging prejudice and racist comments, promoting British values and exploring other cultures and religions to promote diversity.

Behaviour

At Weston-under-Penyard behaviour is outstanding. Children play and work well with each other and enjoy school life. Mutual respect is evident between staff and children and the whole school has a lovely family atmosphere. At our school we have 3 simple rules that we follow based on the UN Rights of the Child:

  • We have the right to learn

  • We have the right to have friends

  • We have the right to be happy and safe

These are supported by our Behaviour and Anti-Bullying policies, both available on request from the school office or by clicking the links below. There have been no exclusions in the last 5 years and no racist or homophobic incidents.

Where children don’t get along we have simple systems in place.  There is a 'Trust Box' in the library for children to use. Children talk to staff about any problems they are having and we talk to parents where children have fallen out or bullying has occurred. If we see any problems or find out about any, we intervene. We use our rules and Learning Council agreed sanctions in talking to children about making good choices, putting bad choices right and then moving on.
