Who are we?
Every class in our school votes for who they would like to represent them on the safe squad at the start of each year. We are interested in keeping everybody in our school safe and work together to achieve this goal.
We all agree on our role as members of the safe squad and meet each half term to discuss how we can help to make our school a safe, caring and welcoming place to be.
This year’s elected members in 2018/19 are:
Year 1: Lilith and Alicia
Year 2: Junior and Ava
Year 3: Ruby and Courtney
Year 4: Thomas and Sky
Year 5: Kelise
Year 6: Kai and Olivia
What do we do?
We have a meeting every half term to talk about how safe our school is. We discuss how our school keeps us safe and how we can make it even safer. We then use this information to create action points which we focus on throughout the academic year.
What have we done already?
Over the past few academic years we have focused on a range of action points including:
· Creating a child-friendly, anti-bullying policy for all children to access (Click here to see our Anti-Bullying Flyer)
· Developing a safer parking charter for our school through working with PCSOs (Click here to see our Parking Charter)
· Supporting Safer Internet Day
· Participating in Anti-Bullying week each year
· Creating informative and interactive displays around school
· Raising money, through a cake sale, for two parking banners to display at either entrance to school
· Creating a buddy bus stop on the KS2 playground for all children to access
· Carrying out learning walks and pupil voice questionnaires to evaluate how safe our school is
What are some of our plans this year?
· To continue to promote e-safety, water safety and anti-bullying through activities, themed weeks, competitions and assemblies.
· To carry out learning walks and pupil voice questionnaires to evaluate how safe our school is and what we can put in place to improve this further
· The Safe Squad would like to run assemblies and possibly small workshops for specific children/year groups.
· Work with Place2Be throughout the year and establish themes moving forward
· Continue to develop the child friendly, anti-bullying policy and safer parking charter through working with children, staff and parents
