School staff and volunteers are particularly well placed to observe outward changes in behaviour, signs of abuse and failure to develop because they have daily contact with children and young people.

In delivering our Safeguarding duties we will provide a caring, safe environment which promotes the development of the whole child, we will work to identify concerns at an early stage to help prevent them escalating and will work with parents and carers to protect the welfare of all children and young people. We always act in the best interests of the child.

    Talking about mental health

    It’s always good to talk, but knowing where to start can be difficult, that’s why the Mental Health Foundation have created conversation cards that you can use as a starting point. In 2024, the cards focus on movement, as well as encouraging people to open up about their mental health more generally.

    You can see these conversation starters in the document below:
