Safeguarding Policy: Updated March 2017
Can I ask that in the holidays, if you do see anything that concerns you about the safety and welfare of any child in the community, you can, in fact, make that referral yourselves. It will always be taken seriously and you are able to do this anonymously if you prefer. Occasionally, parents of our school have come in to tell us about concerns that they have noticed over holidays and we appreciate the communication that you have with us. We do, though, need you to make contact with the appropriate agencies if you are worried as it may need more immediate action.
If you feel concerned and need to make a referral, the way to do this is explained on the link below –
Special Educational Needs and Inclusion Policies: Updated June 2017
Behaviour & British Values Policy – Updated June 2017
Our Values & Our Values Badges
When the children have achieved something extraordinary within a value (in or out of school, such as demonstrating that value in school exceptionally well for a sustained period of time, or achieving something extraordinary outside of school, such as doing something special to raise money for charity) they would get a pin linked to the colour of their value. Once pupils have gained all of the 6 value pins, they would then achieve a gold values badge to show that they embody all of the school values.
Below are some examples of the kind of ways a child might earn a values badge:
|Worked or played exceptionally well with others in school (class or playground) or in after school club – co-operating with others and taking into account differing viewpoints. Pupils should demonstrate this value consistently over time.
This value is nominated by teachers or after school club staff.
|Fulfilling their ‘butterfly dreams’. Children can nominate themselves when they can show that this is fulfilled.||Exceptional focus and commitment to learning over time (nominated by teacher).
Commitment shown over a prolonged time to out of school sports training sessions. Children can nominate themselves for this, with acknowledgement provided of the child’s commitment by the sports coach.
|A reflective report following a visit to a place of worship or taking part in a celebration.
A nomination from a teacher about a tolerant approach towards their peers or the wider school community.
|Recovering from an operation, illness or a difficult time in school or at home. Children and parents can nominate for this.
Responding to adversity or challenges in learning over a sustained period to achieve a positive outcome. Teachers to nominate.
|Charity based work, for example a sponsored activity to raise money. Children can nominate themselves for this value with evidence of their charity work.
Exceptional compassion shown towards the school or local community over a sustained period. Teachers and children can nominate themselves for this value reward.
The values and their colours are shown below:
|Red Pin Badge||Aspiration|
|Green Pin Badge||Caring|
|White Pin Badge||Resilience|
|Blue Pin Badge||Self-discipline|
|Yellow Pin Badge||Co-operation|
|Orange Pin Badge||Tolerance|

Golden Ties 2016
Below is a photograph of our Golden Tie Award Pupils for Sept 2016.
The Golden ties are awarded to a boy and girl in each class between Years 3 and 6. These children are nominated by their Class Teacher as having worked extra hard, and represented the school extremely well. It is not a reflection of the children who have performed the best, but who have most impressed their teachers throughout the year.
