Parent and Volunteers

At Banham Primary School we are very fortunate to have a supportive and friendly parent body. We believe that educating children is a process that involves partnership between parents, class teachers and the school community.  The purpose of this policy is to provide a reminder to all parents, carers and visitors to our school about expected conduct. This is so we can continue to flourish, progress and achieve in an atmosphere of mutual understanding. We provide an information sheet for Parents and Carers who volunteer at the school to hear readers, for example, and as well as our Home-School Agreement which we ask all parents to sign each year, the CEE Trust has also provided us with a draft Code of Conduct for Parents, downloadable here

 

Safeguarding Policy (including Prevent duty and policy for Looked After Children)

Our school fully recognises the contribution it can make to protect children from harm and supporting and promoting the welfare of all children who are registered pupils at our school. We also recognise that safeguarding against radicalisation and extremism is no different to safeguarding against any other vulnerability in today’s society. This policy will give clear direction to staff, volunteers, visitors and parents about the expected behaviour and our legal responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of all children at our school.
