Safeguarding Inspection

The school's most recent inspection was a Safeguarding inspection which was held in October 2017. Three members of the Education Training Inspectorate (ETI) visited the school and looked at all the policies and procedures relating to Safeguarding and Child Protection. They spoke with the Principal and Designated Child Protection Teacher and to the Year 6 pupils, as well as with members of our Board of Governors.

Whilst they were unable to see the outworking of these policies within the school (due to industrial action short of strike action), they were able to comment on what they had looked at.

In summary, they found that the school’s paperwork presented was meticulous, and that all relevant policies were up to date. They noted that the school had appropriately identified areas in which it wished to develop further.

ETI felt the pupils were respectful and very happy at school, noting that the pupils spoke very highly of the school and its teachers, and that they knew who to go to if they had a problem.

They felt the representatives of the school’s Board of Governors were highly skilled in their role and in their knowledge of school improvement.

In conclusion, ETI felt our school was a very warm and welcoming place.
