Page - Safeguarding
Rushy Meadow School is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people, their families and staff. This means that everything we do is designed to promote the safety and well-being of the children we work with, as well as that of children and young people in general. We believe that safeguarding and good practice are best promoted by staff who are valued, trained, encouraged and appropriately managed and supported in the work they do.
We firmly believe that every child needs to feel safe and happy if they are to reach their potential. We have 3 specially trained support assistants who work with groups of children or individual children on a range of issues such as dealing with bereavement, friendships and anxiety. Their role in the school is to support children & families to get the most out of school. They support teachers in the classrooms to deliver the PSHE and circle time curriculum. We also have a Jigsaw4U Worker who is available to talk to parents and ensure that they have the help they need for our children to succeed.
