Our school will always discuss concerns with parents/carers and consent for any referrals should be sought unless to do so would:
Place the child at risk of significant harm or further risk of significant harm;
Place a vulnerable adult at risk of harm; and
Compromise any enquiries that need to be undertaken by children’s social care or the police.
The school will endeavour to ensure that parents have an understanding of the responsibilities placed on the school and staff for safeguarding children.
In the best interests of safeguarding children there may be occasions when the school has to consult with other agencies without a parent or carer’s prior knowledge. Our first concern and responsibility is the child’s welfare and we have a duty to protect children first and always. Such consultation may result in a formal referral which could prompt visits from social care and/or the police. We fully understand that this can be a very distressing set of circumstances. Our school will follow the procedures required by the Walsall Safeguarding Children's Board.
Our school will employ the services of an interpreter if required.
Photographs and Filming at School Events:
Parents/carers are entitled to take photographs or short films of their children at school public events, but these are for their own personal use and must not be shared on social media.
