We are an inclusive school that places a significant focus on wellbeing.

At Carr Manor Community School we have a strong, well-established culture of safeguarding and wellbeing. “The staff are passionate about forming relationships which enable students and parents to engage with them and each other.” – NSPCC January 2022

We are an inclusive school that places a significant focus on wellbeing. We are proud of our Coaching system and how it allows all young people to have a ‘go to’ person for support, as well as a link for parents/carers when they have a concern.

“It was evident throughout the review that the students and staff feel supported with their mental health and wider safeguarding concerns.” – NSPCC January 2022

Our staff are regularly trained and kept up-to-date with the latest policies and procedures, as well as key patterns and trends within safeguarding.

We have a multi-disciplinary and specialist safeguarding team who work across the whole-school to offer support and intervention for any young person or family who might need it. As well as this, we work effectively and closely with a range of external agencies, ensuring the best support is available to pupils and families.

Internet Safety

As technology continues to develop and our pupils independence grows, it is natural that they will explore the internet, both in school and at home.

The internet offers great solutions for everyday problems and is widely used for education, entertainment and social networking. In the classroom, it is used to enhance our pupils learning and encourages independence for them to explore and discover new things.

However, we need to make sure that we support our pupils while they are using the internet, to make sure they are accessing it in a safe, secure and knowledgeable way. This means that if anything was to go wrong, they know how to react and resolve the situation.

We ensure we offer eSafety support by:

  • teaching eSafety lessons to Year 3 onwards
  • taking part in the annual National eSafety Week
  • enrolling our staff on the Safer Schools programme
  • delivering eSafety lessons during Coaching+

We have created some guidance for parents/carers which includes useful tips and information on how pupils may access/use some of the main social media platforms. Please click the link below to view a copy of this document.

If you have any worries or concerns about the way your child is behaving online, please contact your child’s coach, or our Designated Safeguarding Lead, Mrs Holdsworth.
