At Woodhouse Primary School we take all aspects of safeguarding very seriously and our procedures are rigorous and effective. We prioritise the safety of all children in our care and all school staff are thoroughly trained in safeguarding and child protection matters. Should you have any concerns, we would ask that you do not hesitate and bring them to the attention of one of the Designated Safeguarding Leads (DSLs) in the school: Mrs Daveney, Mrs Crane or Mrs Hirst.

Phone support available for parents/carers Monday – Friday between 10am and 4pm – starting Monday 27th April 2020
Parents/carers will be able to request a call back from a member of the Noah’s Ark Centre staff team by sending their brief details and request for a call to the following email address: [email protected]
The support available will be for parents/carers to offload their worries and concerns: a space to explore their situation a little and their thinking about their relationships with and support of their children and young people. We will listen, support, offer advice where we can and signpost to other services where appropriate. The calls will be kept confidential with the usual exception of significant safeguarding concerns which we will need to refer on to appropriate safeguarding teams and services if these were to arise. Our staff responding to requests for support are all experienced and trained in emotionally supporting children, young people and adults and all have experience of working in schools. Some staff have particular training and experience working with families and/or with children with special needs, learning difficulties, or who are on the Autism Spectrum.

Woodhouse Web Sheriffs
At the beginning of the year, after a rigorous application process, a child in each class was chosen as class web sheriffs. The web sheriffs give advice, help on the computers and strive to keep us all safe on the internet. So far this year, they have helped lead an assembly on safer internet day and are reviewing popular games and apps during the web sheriffs club.
We used the reviews on Net Aware and decided whether we agreed with what other parents and children had said. To read the full Net Aware review and get top tips, follow the link below the review:
The majority of the web sheriffs thought that age 10 should be the minimum age for playing Roblox.
“Some of the games are violent so it’s not the most safe to play,” Annabelle Yr3.
“You can set parental controls and put ‘invite only’ so only your friends can join,” Harry Yr6.
“As the minimum age is 13+, nobody at our school should really be playing this game. It’s fun and dangerous all at the same time,” Grace Yr5.
