Keeping Children Safe

We believe that everyone shares a responsibility to keep children safe. We are fortunate to have a close community here on camp, but this can, itself, feel deceptively 'secure'. 

We would encourage any parent who has concerns about the welfare of a child to talk to a member of staff, who may pass this information to the Designated Senior Lead for child protection (Mr. Campbell).

In addition, our child protection policy (see 'Policies' above) provides further details. We also recently sent a letter out to all parents detailing some of the ways the community can help keep children safe, and offering helpful numbers for 'out of hours' support; this can be found here. In addition to this information, NSPCC offer a line that any adult, with any concerns about a child can call at any time: 0808 800 5000. Please always share your concerns. 

For specific information on online safety, please see our separate page, or click here.

Operation Encompass

As a school, we recognise that domestic abuse has a hugely damaging impact on children. We are therefore part of Operation Encompass, a national program of liaison between the police and schools. This involves information sharing and partnership to support children who have been, or may have been, exposed to domestic abuse of any type.

If you are aware of abuse, or, indeed, are experiencing domestic abuse, please do discuss this with the school’s Designated Safeguarding Lead, who will be able to help.
