General Statements

Adverse Weather

In cases of adverse weather the school website will be updated and a text message will also be sent out to all parents as soon as a decision has been made regarding closing the school. Heart FM will also report any school closures.

Domestic Abuse

The Federation receives information form the police to alert the DSL within either school when there has been an incident of domestic abuse in a household where a pupil lives.  We are not informed of the detail of the incident, only that one has occurred.  This allows us to monitor and support the pupil.  If we have additional concerns we will discuss the need for further safeguarding actions with Social Care.  This information would only be shared with other staff on restricted need to know basis i.e. those who are immediately responsible for the pupil’s welfare such as the class teacher.  Where a Multi agency risk assessment conference (MARAC) occurs the school may be asked for information and appropriate school related information may be shared with the school after the meeting.
