Safeguarding

Staff and Governors in the Pebworth First and Blackminster Middle Schools Federation are fully committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children. In our recruitment, our policies and our day-to-day work we aim to:

  • Protect children from maltreatment
  • Prevent impairment of children’s health or development
  • Ensure that children grow up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care
  • Take action to enable all children to have the best outcomes.

For details of how we work to protect the children in our schools, please see our Safeguarding policy below. We do not tolerate bullying in any form. Details of our antibullying policy can also be found below.

eSafety

The internet is continually used and is firmly embedded in our everyday practices. It is an essential element in 21st century life for education, business and social interaction. We use it as a tool on a daily basis to aid and improve teaching and learning at Pebworth First School. We can all use it to access information from around the world, to talk to friends and help our work.

It is a vast environment offering a wealth of resources and knowledge that benefit us all. At Pebworth First School, we believe it is essential that we all learn how to are ready to behave responsibly online, both at home and at school. Our Acceptable Use Agreement outlines acceptable and unacceptable use of ICT and the internet.

At Pebworth First School, we take E-Safety and Digital Literacy very seriously and follow government advice on best practice. Please help us to support your children by looking at the links below, which provide important information on how to stay safe online.
