Pastoral Care

Fladbury CE First School is a caring community and we aim to encourage strong Christian values, where every individual is treated with mutual respect and care.  As such we have formal committees and policies in place to support staff  and should there be concerns about a child’s education or wellbeing staff will consult parents initially to arrange an appointment to discuss the problem and together a decision will be made about whether that child would benefit from further support.

Similarly, we ask that parents contact the school to discuss any issues they may have regarding their child’s life at Fladbury School so that these can be resolved quickly.

A welcoming school

Fladbury is a welcome and ‘open’ school.  All children, regardless of disability or special need, will be admitted to the school as long as facilities can be provided to meet their needs for an efficient education. If you have any concerns, as a parent, then please do make an appointment to discuss these with the Headteacher.

A safe school

Our duty is to keep all children safe at all times whilst they are in school.  All entrances to the school buildings are fitted with security.  Visitors must call at the School Office where advice, help and assistance can be given. All visitors must sign the Visitors’ Book and are given a Visitor’s Badge so that everyone knows that the person is a welcome guest of the school.  If we have any concerns about a child’s safety we will immediately contact either parents or the relevant agency to keep that child safe. The school operates under the relevant Child Protection Procedures, which gives guidelines as to the procedures to be taken if any child appears to be in danger. The Headteacher and Chair of Governors have been trained in Safer Recruiting which strengthens and safeguards against employing unsuitable people in schools. The Governors ensure that all employees have been Police checked and hold a Criminal Records Clearance certificate. We also expect volunteers who work in school on regular basis to undergo these checks too and have a dedicated Governor who is responsible for safeguarding.

Medicines, First Aid and Allergies

All members of staff undergo First Aid training.  If your child needs to take any medicines during the school day please let the office know by giving clear written instructions with details of the dosage and times that any medicines need to be taken.  This must be handed to the office staff together with the medication. No medication will be given without parental consent and no child is allowed to keep medicines with them during the day.  If a child requires an inhaler, these are kept by the child’s teacher.

If you suspect your child has an allergy then it is vital that you let the Headteacher, class teacher and office know about this so that all necessary precautions can be taken.  If you have any worry about your child's health then please make an appointment to come in and discuss this.

Moral, Cultural & Social Development

As a Church of England School we believe implicitly in the nurturing of a strong set of Christian values for future life.  We encourage everyone to behave responsibly and with care and respect for others.  We believe that this is a very important part of a child’s development and aim to set good examples throughout our daily lives.  Social development is encouraged in the classroom, at playtimes and mealtimes and throughout our teaching and learning.  We celebrate our own culture and learn from others through strong links with other communities.  Our moral, spiritual, social and cultural development form an integral part of the school assembly and of the school’s whole ethos.  We encourage our children to be aware of those less fortunate themselves and, as part of our mission, support various charities throughout the year to raise their awareness of others needs.
