St Leonard's C.E. (VC) First School
The school seeks to promote the spiritual, moral and cultural development of pupils to prepare them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life, to help children to develop a sense of self worth and confidence, to be self critical and take increasing responsibility for their own learning. As a C.E. school Christian values are at the heart of our general aims in promoting self-discipline, understanding and concern for others.
This school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. Parents can feel confident that careful procedures are in place to ensure that all staff and volunteers are suitable to work with children. Staff hope that parents and children will feel free to talk about any concerns or worries which may affect educational progress and that they will see the school as a safe place. Children will be taken seriously if they seek help from a member of staff. Parents will normally be consulted and their consent obtained before any referral is made to an agency outside the school under local “children in need” procedures. However, staff cannot guarantee to consult parents first, or to keep children’s concerns confidential, if referral must be made to the appropriate agencies in order to safeguard the child’s welfare.
