The Grange Primary School

Pastoral Support

DFE  Statutory Guidance –  Keeping Children Safe In Education 2015 states that “Everyone who comes into contact with children and their families has a role to play in safeguarding children. School and college staff are particularly important as they are in a position to identify concerns early and provide help for children, to prevent concerns from escalating. Schools and colleges and their staff form part of the wider safeguarding system for children.”

All parents are asked to complete our home/school information form and tell us if any details change during the year.

Should you wish to discuss any concerns or notify us of any changes please ask to speak to the Pastoral Manager or staff, we are always willing to discuss any matters. We hope that parents and children will find it easy to bring any problems or issues to our attention. We work closely with other agencies that may be able to support you and your family and Pastoral Care is seen as a joint responsibility.

Where there are concerns of possible abuse of children, there is a legal requirement for action to be taken and where we would always attempt to work alongside parents there may be circumstances when we will take appropriate action to safeguard a child without parental consent as laid down in the Safeguarding Policy.
