Safeguarding our school is of paramount importance and we are committed to keeping all children at Newtown Community Primary School safe. Through regular training and support our staff are well equipped to deal with any safeguarding or child protection issues. When employing new staff we not only apply all the relevant stringent checks, we also strive to ensure that new staff share our ethos and values to keep our children safe and happy.
We would ask that as a community if you have a concern about the safety of a child either in or out of school please let the school know as soon as possible. Mr Marshall, Mrs Hunt and Mrs Cameron hold important safeguarding roles within the school and they will always listen to your concerns and act on them accordingly.
Special Educational Needs
In September 2014, a new statutory Code of Practice for Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) was introduced by the Department for Education (DfE). The SEND reforms build on best practice and join education, health and care services, from birth to twenty five, to provide the best outcomes for children and young adults.
Local authorities have a duty to publish a Local Offer. This provides all of the services that children and young people with SEND can expect on offer in their authority. Wilshire Council’s Local Offer can be found by following this link:
Schools are required to publish how they aim to meet the new requirements of the reforms. This is referred to as a School Information Report. Please click on the following link to open ours:
