Melbourne Infant School is fully committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all its pupils. We want all children to enjoy school, develop active and healthy lifestyles and feel safe. Safeguarding and promoting excellent behaviour are key priorities to ensure that children feel happy and safe at school at all times. This role includes ensuring our children are safe from abuse and neglect (physical, emotional and sexual) and are free from incidents of bullying.

We are committed to giving our children a secure and encouraging environment where children's spiritual, moral and cultural development is enhanced through delivery of the curriculum in general and through our PSHCE and Computing Scheme of works. If you wish to view our Safeguarding Policies please click here.

Mobile phones/Photographs

We recognise that parents, carers and family members may wish to record events such as school plays, sports day etc, to celebrate their child's achievements. Mobile phones are only permitted in school on these occasions. It is important that such records remain private and for family and personal use only. Please be very careful if putting your children's images on the internet, including social networking sites. If you wish to put these images online, please ensure there are no other children within the picture, or you have obtained permission of the parents or carers of other children concerned.
