Safeguarding and welfare support during the COVID-19 period
We are acutely aware that during this time we are all facing many challenges and one of our primary roles as a school is to support all our pupils and parents to feel safe and secure. Our schools are still running, albeit in a different way, and we are trying to maintain those vital links with your child/children and you. Please do feel that you can still ask to speak with someone if you have concerns by contacting the school office.
We also know that the lack of normal school contact, where you can choose to speak to someone face to face, could make it harder for you to share concerns during this time, so we have signed up to a secure, online messaging and reporting tool, run by South West Grid for Learning, called Whisper which will allow parents to contact us if you have any concerns, worries, if there is anything bothering you, or you feel we can help. This way of contacting us is anonymous.
The platform is encrypted and only our Head of School/Designated Safeguarding Lead, and our SENCO/ Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead, will be able to access the messages. Please be assured all such messages will be treated with sensitivity and professionalism.
If you have any welfare concerns that you would like to report through Whisper, you can do so leaving your name, or anonymously.
To send us a message please click the button below and this will take you to a secure e-mail page. We will endeavour to get back to you within 2 working days.
