Safety in the Curriculum
Safety is an essential part of the children's lives at Sun Hill Infant School. Children work in partnership with teachers to risk assess every day situations and learning experiences All classes create class charters at the beginning of the year that include agreed safety rules and whole school safety rules are shared and discussed on a regular basis. Our PDL and Computing curriculum explores personal safety in relation to relationships, friendships, use of the internet, Stranger Danger (now referred to as Clever Never Goes) etc. For further information, take a look at our PDL and Computing overviews for specific teaching points.
ELSA (Emotional Literacy Support)
Mrs Defelice works three mornings a week (Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays) and supports children and families with mental health and emotional and behavioural needs. She delivers a range of interventions to help support and keep children safe as well as offering time to talk and support parents.
We welcome parents and volunteers to come and work in our school. In order to keep our children safe, all volunteers must have an enhanced DBS check carried out. Annual training is offered to volunteers, lead by our deputy designated safeguarding leader. As a volunteer, you will also receive a pack containing key policies that must be read prior to working in school. For further information, please look at the Volunteer website page under the 'Parents' tab or pop into school to talk to the Admin Team.
