Dignity and Respect
At Eye C of E Primary School we firmly believe that all children should be treated with dignity and respect. This is rooted in our belief that each being is created in the image of God and is loved by God. We work hard to ensure that children are kept safe and are protected in an environment where all God's children are valued.
Our commitment to the dignity and ultimate worth of each child is rooted in each being created in the image of God. As a result of this, safeguarding has a high profile at Eye. The school is fully compliant in all areas of safeguarding. Staff receive annual training to refresh their understanding of safeguarding and regular reminders regarding safeguarding are included within the weekly briefing. Children are taught about how to keep themselves safe through our PSHE curriculum. Special events and assemblies are planned to increase children’s awareness of safeguarding issues e.g. NSPCC initiatives during anti-bullying week.
Jesus embodies the love and compassion of God for each and every person. This helps to shape our whole school SEND Policy. The school actively seek to reduce and remove any barrier that might limit the opportunities for children to live life to the full. The school adopts an approach of ‘Quality First Teaching’ to provide an inclusive environment for all; this may include the use of kinaesthetic resources or additional adult support. The SENCO meets with the teachers as part of our pupil progress meetings each term to discuss the progress of children who have a learning difficulty or any child that has a cause for concern. Following this, interventions are put in place e.g. daily reading or precision teaching.
Our pastoral team work closely with pupils and families to ensure that support is provided to all members of the school community. This is with the children in school for mentoring sessions as well as with the families.
