Safeguarding

 

Ashperton Primary Academy is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people.

If you have any concerns in relation to the welfare or safety of any children or young people, please contact the members of staff below. There will always be someone to speak to you. 

 

Mr Chris Bandfield - Designated Safeguarding Lead

 

Miss Sam Taylor -Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead

 

Mrs Rachael Hassan -Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead

 

If we have significant concerns about a child, we have a duty to communicate these concerns to Social Care. It is then a matter for Social Care to decide on the steps to be taken.

If we make the decision to speak to Social Care about your child, we will always undertake to share our intention to do so with you unless we deem that doing so could put the child at greater risk of harm, or impede a criminal investigation.

We fully appreciate that this can be very distressing but we have to follow the procedures required by the Herefordshire Safeer Children and Young Person Partnership.

Other helpful phone numbers are:

 

Hereford MASH  01432 260800

Alternatively, you can e-mail Miss Taylor, Mrs Hassan or myself on staylor@ashperton.hereford,sch.ukrhassan@ashperton.hereford.sch.ukor cbandfield@ashperton.hereford.sch.uk respectively or, ideally, copy us all in.

Mental Health and Wellbeing at Ashperton 

At Ashperton, we support our pupils’ mental health and wellbeing through our PSHE curriculum.  All year groups have the opportunity to explore feelings, emotions and the importance of mental and physical health. 

 

Our children are taught that they can talk to any adult within school that they feel most comfortable with.  They know that they can talk about any worries, concerns or even if they just want to talk to someone they feel comfortable with. 

 

Each class has a ‘chatter box’ situated outside of their rooms so that children across the school, can write a signed (or anonymous) note. 

If you have concerns about your child, please contact your class teacher, Mr Bandfield (cbandfield@ashperton.hereford.sch.uk) or our Mental Health Lead , Miss Sam Taylor (staylor@ashperton.hereford.sch.uk) .
