Safeguarding is paramount at Bowmansgreen. The school will endeavour to discuss all concerns about pupils with parents – we always aim to maintain a positive relationship with parents and work closely together with them to help keep pupils safe. However, there may be exceptional circumstances when the school will discuss concerns with Children’s Services, Health Care and/or the Police without parental knowledge (in accordance with the Hertfordshire Child Protection procedures).
Should you have any concerns, the Safeguarding Officers at Bowmansgreen are:
Ms A Lippa Designated Senior Person
Miss C Golding Deputy Senior Person
Ms Allison Chivers Deputy Senior Person
In school, the Hertfordshire Grid for Learning provides for a safe and secure online environment. Many parents and carers do seek advice on how they can help their children to ‘Stay Safe’ online outside of school. These websites provide comprehensive information about online safety and once parents and carers have a wider knowledge and understanding of the issues they can decide what is right for their family. Within Bowmansgreen, the children are regularly taught about staying safe online – including when using mobile devices. Click here to view our esafeguarding policy.
The internet is an exciting and fun place for adults and children to use and explore educationally and socially. The challenge for parents, carers and teachers is to make sure our children are aware and understand how to be safe when using the internet and related technologies.
Hertfordshire have produced a list of websites that parents may find beneficial to look at and can be found by clicking the link below:
Both policies are also available to view in the ‘Policies’ section of this website and as hard-copies from our school office.
