‘Where the children come first’


Safeguarding children is always a priority.  If at any time you have a concern, or are worried about a child, please speak to

Mrs Lynne Valentine or Mr Paul Waller, who are the School's Designated Safeguarding Leads.   

The West Berkshire statutory body for Safeguarding is West Berkshire Local Safeguarding Children Board (WB LSCB)


The website contains helpful advice on reporting any concerns you may have WB LSCB


The NSPCC offers a 'Schools Service' and information on this is found in their handbook in our staff room. There is a section from the handbook entitled 'How to help parents keep their children safe' which you may find interesting. A better copy of it is available in school.

But it is usually defined as repeated behaviour which is intended to hurt someone either emotionally or physically, and is often aimed at certain people because of their race, religion, gender or sexual orientation or any other aspect such as appearance or disability. For more information, guidance and advice visit the Bullying UK website.
