Safeguarding
At Stanville Primary School, safeguarding the interests of all our children is at the heart of our policies and practices. The following priorities are addressed, not only through the curriculum, but in everything we do:
  • Be healthy
  • Stay safe
  • Enjoy and achieve
  • Make a positive contribution
  • Achieve economic well-being
Children are given numerous opportunities to develop their self-esteem and confidence as well as developing life skills (communication, empathy, cooperation etc.) both in school and outside in the community.
 
The Designated Safeguarding Leads (DSLs) at Stanville Primary School are Mrs Kipps (Deputy Head), Mrs Watton (Pastoral Achievement Coordinator) and Mr Runacres (Head Teacher). If you have any concerns regarding safeguarding or child protection please speak to either of these staff,
 
Early Help

Fear not, there is a lot of early support available, why not ask to speak to your child’s teacher, Mrs Watton (Pastoral Achievement Coordinator) or Denise Hopkins (Family Support & Home Liaison Coordinator) at the school to discuss options available (click the Early Help icon to the left). Alternatively click the Support icon to access a range of support from other agencies. 
 
Think Family
Think Family image.jpgFamily life is challenging; but when faced with many problems at once, it can be hard to know where to turn. Think Family can help. Think Family is not a new service but a new way of working. Think Family provides services that meet the needs of your whole family, rather than supporting one person separately.
 
Think Family is offered where: -
* An adult is out of work
* There are concerns about a child’s school attendance
* A young person is not in education, training or work
* A family member has been in trouble within the neighbourhood or with the Police
* A family member has physical or emotional health problems
* You are having problems that are stopping you from bringing up your children as well as you could (such as housing, relationship or money worries).
If your family has had more than one of these problems, Think Family can help. For further information please click the Think Family image.
  
Child Protection
Stanville Primary is committed to the highest standards in protecting and safeguarding the children entrusted to our care.
 
Our school supports all children by:
  • Promoting a caring, safe and positive environment within the school
  • Developing self-esteem and self-assertiveness
  • Effectively tackling bullying and harassment
We recognise that some children may be the victims of neglect, physical, sexual or emotional abuse. As with all educational establishments, it is our duty to respond to any concerns by contacting the appropriate services so as to ensure the well-being of all children. This is in line with agreed Birmingham Child Protection procedures.

eSafety
As a school we recognise the benefits of ICT as a learning resource and life skill for the 21st century; however we are also aware of the possible concerns connected with the use of such a medium. In response to this we have installed in school both the software and a dedicated server which monitors any inappropriate content across the network (including the possibility of cyber bullying), both online or offline, whether it is typed, or displayed in applications. Monitoring in the school is designed to allow the children, and staff, to access this technology with confidence and reassurance as well as educating them in safe usage.
 
The eSafety Lead at Stanville Primary School is Mr Runacres (Head Teacher). If you have any concerns regarding eSafety please speak to Mr Runacres.
