If you have any concerns about children at Hardwick school or require any advice or support in the current situation, please contact Mrs Mckenzie-Blyth (Home school link worker) on: firstname.lastname@example.org
During this time of closure we continue to be open for provision for vulnerable pupils and children of key workers. Irrespective of any closure or collaboration with another school, the safeguarding of all our children remains our top priority. At this time, our school will continue as normal in supporting our vulnerable children and if anyone has any questions regarding this they are asked to make contact with Hannah McKenzie-Blyth. Please contact her on 07923059914 (Hardwick Nursery Mobile) if you have any queries.
Safeguarding Children in Banbury is a collaboration of schools, college, health, police, social care and additional support agencies. The aim is to educate and inform our young people and families. The group’s objectives for the children/young people/community are as follows:
- I know how to keep myself safe from…
- I know how to keep my child safe from…
- We know how to keep our community safe from…
It was decided that there would be three main focus areas across the year, the first being based around education on substance misuse/being healthy/good and bad habits; the second would be around Internet Safety and the third around exploitation.
The educational establishments would then all teach the same message at the same time of year, so the children and young people are all hearing the same messages in order to keep themselves safe.
SCIB aim to produce a publication which will show what our children have learned over the year and provide use-full information for parents and carers.
In the Autumn we plan on having an exhibit in Castle Quay, showcasing children’s work and providing information and advice.
This work will continue year on year, with the children being taught age appropriate lessons on how to keep them-selves safe. We will update you as the year progresses as to some of their learning and successes.
