There are times when children fall out with each other and an accusation of bullying is made. We take all accusations very seriously, endeavouring to get to the heart of the accusation. By understanding children’s feeling we can resolve issues with sensitivity and care.
It is expected that everyone in the school community will follow and adhere to the school behaviour policy. All adults are expected to model the behaviour expected from the pupils.
Child Protection / Safeguarding Policy
Colwich recognises its legal duty under the Education Act 2002 and the 1989 Children Act and takes seriously its responsibilities to protect and safeguard the interests of all children. The school recognises that effective child protection work requires sound procedures, good inter-agency co-operation and a workforce that is competent and confident in responding to child protection needs.
If parents have concerns regarding their children’s education, it is important that these are addressed quickly and effectively. It is the school’s firm belief that children will never flourish if they are not happy and therefore any issues at school or at home which is affecting, or has the potential to affect, their welfare should be shared by parents and school staff.
Disability and Equality Scheme/Accessibility Plan
At Colwich staff will endeavour to make sure that anyone with a disability is treated fairly and not discriminated against on account of their disability; to make reasonable adjustments for those with a disability and to increase access to education for any pupils with a disability.
Special Educational Needs Policy
If school or parents/carers have concerns about a child’s progress, there is a clear procedure that will be followed. This is set out in the Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) Code of Practice. This is a document, produced by the Department for Education, which provides guidance and advice on the identification and assessment of special educational needs. The latest SEND Code of Practice was brought before Parliament and made statutory in 2014. The school’s SEND policy takes full account of the 2014 Code of Practice; it has recently been reviewed and updated. It should be read in conjunction with the school’s SEND report.
