School Safeguarding Board

S.A.F.E committee

Our S.A.F.E committee (Safe and Friendly Environments) are a group of eight, years 5 and 6 children who are chosen by class teachers and Mrs Ward (Deputy Head) for their empathetic and sensible nature. Parents are informed by ‘phone call due to the sensitive nature of some of the task then sign a letter to give permission for their child to be part of this.  Mrs Ward trains this group in counselling skills and works with them on safeguarding issues. A safeguarding suitcase has been set up so all children can post their worries on a slip and this is then responded to by the committee or Mrs Ward depending on the nature of the worry.  S.A.F.E deliver assemblies; eg PANTS, and write Top Tips for classroom display on safeguarding themes. S.A.F.E committee is identified by their green bar badges in school and S.A.F.E caps which they wear in the playground.
