Who are we?
We are a group of children from Year 2 to 6 who work together to help our school to be safe for all of us, children, teachers and visitors. We are supported by Mrs Harrison (Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead). We have voted for and elected our Junior Safeguarding Team for this year and they are all very excited to meet and formulate our action plan for the term ahead.

Today we led our first safeguarding assembly, focusing on Operation Encompass. We shared this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9xENut_nvZk and talked about what happens if there is a domestic abuse incident in the home and the police are called. We also reminded everyone what safeguarding is, who is responsible for safguarding in our school (everyone, but Mrs Dyde, Mrs Woollam, Mrs Riley, Mrs Millichap, Mrs Ryde and Mrs Harrison lead this area) and what we should do if we ever feel unsafe.
