Safeguarding
All school staff have a responsibility to provide a safe environment in which children can learn. Schools and their staff are also an important part of the wider safeguarding system for children. All staff at Belleville receive regular and appropriate safeguarding and child protection training, including around e-safety. Our designated safeguarding lead provides support to staff members to carry out their safeguarding duties and liaises closely with other services such as children’s social care. Read more about safeguarding here and download our full Safeguarding policy from our Policies page.

Supporting children with medical needs
Please do talk to staff if there are any medical issues we may need to know about your child.  For any known condition or medication you will be asked to complete a form to make sure we know how best to help your child.
If your child has an allergy or suffers from asthma and has an inhaler or EpiPen, please provide one to be kept in school, clearly marked with your child’s name. Please note it is the parent’s responsibility to ensure these are in date.
Medication prescribed by a doctor that cannot be given before or after school must be handed into the school office. Medicine must be clearly marked with your child’s name, class and instruction for dosage. You will need to complete a medication administration form before the medication can be accepted by office staff.
We have a full policy on Supporting Children with Medical Needs (including the Administering of Medicines and First Aid) which you can access from our Policies page.
