Meet Our Safeguarding Team

At William Martin CofE Schools and Nursery,  we work hard to ensure our children are safe in school and out of school.

We have a Safeguarding Team:

  Mrs Gina Bailey – Designated Safeguarding Lead

Mrs Claire Kearney – Deputy Designated Lead

       Mrs Anna Harvey – Deputy Designated Lead

       Miss Bonnie Jones – Deputy Designated Lead

If anyone, any adult or any child, has any safeguarding concern, including any related to radicalisation, they are encouraged to contact one of our safeguarding team, either in person, via telephone or via email on admin@williammartin-inf.essex.sch.uk

If you have any safeguarding issues but would prefer not to speak to Mrs Bailey please contact Mr Garry Neave (Chair of Governors) via the office on admin@williammartin-inf.essex.sch.uk

If we have reasonable cause for concern that a child maybe at risk of significant harm, we will refer to social care. This referral can be made with or without us informing parents.

For further information please read our Child Protection Policy or contact one of our safeguarding team.

Some quick tips for keeping your children safe on-line:

You are the responsible adult. You pay the bill. You own the phone. Therefore, you have the right and responsibility to be a good watchdog.

  • Learn how to check up on your child.
  • Privacy covers things like going to the bathroom, not ignoring all of their tech communication.
  • Limit access to mobile phones and tablet devices e.g. not in your bedroom or not after 8pm.
  • There are Apps available that allow you to limit access to certain times e.g. OurPact, Screen Time Parental Control.
  • Keep a note of your child’s password to social media accounts so that you can monitor activity.
  • Be curious, know where they are going and where they have been online. Advise children not to respond to abusive or obscene postings whether this is online, text messages or video messages. You can report incidents of abusive emails and inappropriate sites to your Internet Service Provider (ISP). Your mobile service provider should have a number that you can ring to report abusive messaging. Try their websites for details.
  • Ask your children to teach you how to use what they are using

Safeguarding Policy

At the heart of the work of every primary school class is a continuous cycle of planning, teaching and assessment which takes account of the wide range of abilities, aptitudes and interests of the children. The majority of children will learn and progress within these arrangements. Those children whose overall attainments and achievement in specific subjects fall significantly outside the expected range may have Special Educational Needs (SEN).

For children who have a specific learning difficulty or a disability, our Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) policy outlines the educational support we provide.

If a teacher notices a pupil experiencing difficulties with their learning they will seek guidance from the school Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Co-ordinator (SENDCo). Advice will be given, which may include alternate strategies to support the pupils learning. Both class teacher and SENDCo will hold a meeting with parents to discuss next steps which could include:

  • Advise parents to make an appointment to see the GP
  • Referral to the Speech and Language Therapist service
  • Referral to the Specialist Teacher Team
  • Referral to Educational Psychologist service
  • Referral to EWMHS (Emotional Welfare and Mental Health Services)

When a child is placed on the Special Educational Needs register, consultation with parents will continue through:

  • Parent consultation day.
  • One Plan meetings at least twice a year, working alongside pupils, parents and sometimes specialist agencies to set specific targets that work towards achieving a long-term goal.
  • For pupils with a Statement/ Education Health Care plan (EHC Plan) Annual Review meetings.
