Internet Safety


We have moved with the times in ICT and have a good supply of wi-fi netbooks which the children use on a daily basis for their work. We take internet safety seriously in our school and the latest Ofsted report agreed with us that the children have a good understanding of how to keep safe including with cyber-bullying. There is strict internet security in school and we teach children how to use the internet safely .

Our eSafety Policy describes how we go about safeguarding pupils in this aspect of their lives.

There are two files here - one is a set of 'rules' for using the internet safely, the other is advice from parentline plus about how to avoid cyberbullying. Click on each of the documents to download a copy.

Avoiding Cyber-bullying

School Finances

There has recently been much coverage in the media about the funding for schools. Many schools across the country have indicated that they will have to take drastic action (retrenching staff etc.) to maintain a balanced budget.

 On 16th January 2017, Governors on the Finance Committee considered the future finances of the school and the minutes record:

 Governors noted that the (financial) projections indicate that the income and expenditure budget should be roughly in balance for the next two financial years. Governors identified the potential threats to this position as:

 • A dramatic drop in pupil numbers

 • An abnormal escalation in inflation

 • A dramatic drop (>10%) in the grant from the LA.

 This is against the background of a reduction of about 1% in actual terms of the grant from the LA for 2017/18. Governors do not expect financial considerations to materially affect the operation of the school over the next two years.

At the meeting of Governors on 10th October 2018 they took the view that there is no reason to change this viewpoint.

Mission Statement

We celebrate our Anglican Foundation and are committed to promoting a love of learning and the very highest academic expectations. We believe every child is entitled to a rich education which promotes self-confidence and a healthy mind and body. We are a school where prayer forms an integral part of the school day and which celebrates and shows respect for our children’s faiths and for the faiths and cultures of other people. We are determined to help our children become the best person they can be.

“Living, Laughing, Learning Together”


The school’s responsibilities relating to safeguarding are extensive and very important. Staff have to attend regular safeguarding training sessions as does the designated safeguarding Governor. Safeguarding requirements are regularly changed and constantly updated. The latest regulations and advice relating to safeguarding in schools can be found on the following links:

The Parental Information and Permissions document contains vital information about keeping your child safe at school. The Parental Permissions form provides a convenient way for you to provide permission for your child to take part in all school activities.

The School's responsibilities regarding Safeguarding are extensive and very important.

 Here is what the leading Safeguarding Manager had to say about our procedures:  "I am hoping that all schools can reach the levels you have in looking after your pupils, staff and reassuring parents/carers you are working hard to help children feel safe and happy".

References to the current regulations covering safeguarding are provided on the Official Bits page.
