We believe that safeguarding children is everyone’s responsibility and everyone's business.
All children are special and we work hard to provide an accessible and stimulating environment which cares for the diverse needs of all our children.
We will do everything we can to protect our children.
In cases where the school has reason to be concerned about a child we may consult with the family or involve other agencies, such as Social Care, as appropriate. The school will not first inform parents of concerns in cases where a child’s safety may be compromised by doing so.
If you have any worries or concerns about the safety of your children, or you think that it might be helpful to talk to someone in private about any issues, you are always welcome to come and see us for a chat and to share ideas or information.
Most families have experienced upheaval in their daily lives during the pandemic. With children and young people now back at school or college, the new Public Health England (PHE) Better Health – Every Mind Matters campaign provides NHS-endorsed tips and advice to help children and young people’s mental wellbeing, and equip parents and carers with the knowledge to support them.
The new advice available on the Every Mind Matters website has been developed in partnership with leading children and young people’s mental health charities, including Young Minds, The Mix, Place2Be and The Anna Freud Centre. It is designed to help parents and carers spot the signs that children may be struggling with their mental health and support them, and also provides advice that can help maintain good mental wellbeing. The site also provides tools to help young people build resilience and equips them to look after their mental wellbeing.
Ambergate Primary School works to provide Early Help to families in the school community. Early Help services aim to both provide advice and/or intervene where there is evidence of emerging needs with the objective of preventing escalation to higher-level services. We work alongside a variety of agencies and are providing support through the school setting.
Request for Early Help can be made by speaking to a member of staff, through the school office or by following the links below.
