To All The Pupils At Woodsetts Primary School.

Hello, my name is Mrs Hessey and part of my role in school is Pastoral Care. This means I am here in school to help you. If you are unhappy, or if you need someone to talk to, I am here to help. It could be that something has happened in your life that you find difficult to cope with. You may need someone to talk to, to listen and try and make things easier and make you feel happier too. I do this in my nurture sessions; I will speak to your class teacher as well as other staff, so we can all work together to help you. What you speak to me about is private and I won't discuss it with other children in school. I have a Worry Box in the Hall, so if you need to speak to me you can also write it on a piece of paper and post it in the box. As a school, everyone is important and special to us and we want you to feel safe, happy and cared for. We believe that each and every one of you can learn to grow with confidence, to achieve, be happy and to always 'reach for the stars'.

If you are a parent and you would like to speak to me about any concerns about your child in school or you think they would require some emotional support, please come and speak to me or email me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .

   

 Anston Brook and Woodsetts Federation Safeguarding Statement

 

Anston Brook and Woodsetts Federation aims to work in close partnership with parents to support the children in every way possible. However, there is a clear responsibility on all schools to ensure they work together with other agencies to safeguard and promote the welfare of all children.

 

As a result, if concerns are raised within the school, or a child or parent reports a situation involving possible abuse, we are required to refer such matters to the appropriate Children’s Services, in line with Government and Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council policy.

 

Anston brook and Woodsetts Federation is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Consequently all adults employed by school are required to complete a DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) Enhanced Police Check.

 

It may be helpful for parents to know that the Local Authority requires the school’s Designated Safeguarding Lead to report any obvious or suspected case of child abuse which includes non-accidental injury, severe physical neglect, emotional abuse and/or sexual abuse. This procedure is intended to protect children at risk and schools are encouraged to take the attitude that where there are grounds for suspicion, it is better to be safe than sorry. This does mean that there is a risk of upsetting some parents by reporting a case, which on investigation proves unfounded. In such circumstances, it is hoped that parents, appreciating how difficult it is to carry out this delicate responsibility, would accept that the school was acting in what were believed to be the child’s best interests.
