Safeguarding Guidance

School Safeguarding Statement

At Newbury Park Primary School we respect and value all children and are committed to providing a caring, friendly and safe environment for all our pupils so they can learn, in a relaxed and secure atmosphere. We believe every pupil should be able to participate in all school activities in an enjoyable and safe environment and be protected from harm. This is the responsibility of every adult employed by, or invited to deliver services at Newbury Park Primary School. We recognise our responsibility to safeguard all who access school and promote the welfare of all our pupils by protecting them from physical, sexual and emotional abuse, neglect and bullying.

All schools must have a Designated Officer to deal with any child protection issues.

Our Officer is Deputy Head Teacher  – Ms Ann Moyle.

In her absence the following staff are fully trained  to deal with Child Protection issues:

Roddy Fairclough   –  Headteacher

Shani Herberman-Strange - Assistant Headteacher

Caroline Rogers - Assistant Headteacher

Well Being

To build a listening culture and to create a positive impact on mental resilience and well being, our safeguarding mantra is ‘We show respect, we listen’ 

We understand wellbeing to be a state of being comfortable, healthy and happy and  aim to ensure that mental health and well-being  is “everyone’s responsibility” across the whole school community, creating  an environment that provides excellent support. We often  work in  partnership with parents, carers and pupils, by assisting families to support their children’s  well being - focusing on preventative and early intervention strategies which may include the involvement of specialist services and other agencies. We also work with pupils and parents (and our Education Welfare Officer)  to identify why full attendance is not being achieved. 


Esafety is an important part of keeping children safe at Newbury Park Primary School. In school, children are taught to stay safe and behave appropriately online. Please use the links below so we can deliver a consistent esafety message together.

Often parents ask us how to talk to children about their on line habits. The questions below are good for starting that conversation:

  • Ask your child what apps/games they are on at the moment. They might not show you everything so ask them to show you their device. Have this conversation regularly so you are up to date with what they are doing.
  • Ask which websites they are enjoying and why. Take an interest in a positive way.
  • Ask 'How does this game /app work? Show me how to play it?' It might highlight something they don’t recognise as a danger. If they don’t want to share their activities with you question why.
  • Ask ‘Do you know what your personal information is?’ Children may not understand how personal information can be shared. They need to know how photos and personal information can be quickly shared online.
  • Ask ‘Do you have any online friends?’ Children may not fully understand the difference between a friend and stranger.
  • 'Do you know your limits?’ Talk to them about healthy habits.
