Why The Valley?
Dear parents and friends of the school, may I, on behalf of all my staff, say a big ‘hello and welcome to the Valley Community School Website’. At the Valley Community School a warm welcome awaits you, the school places a great emphasis on achievement, transparency and openness.
As a ‘National Support School’ (NSS), we pride ourselves on the ability to use our expertise to support other schools both locally and nationally.
We believe that we share a partnership role with parents to nurture the very best in our pupils, as a recognised ‘Inclusion Quality Mark Centre of Excellence’, we believe every child matters and we support all pupils to maximise their potential because:
‘Together we’re better’.
Mr Kevan Naughton
Safeguarding at The Valley
We have a number of policies and procedures in place that contribute to our safeguarding commitment, including our Child Protection Policy which can be viewed in the Policies section of our website. Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a child’s welfare. We will ensure that our concerns about our pupils are discussed with his/her parents/carers first unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child’s welfare.
The following VCS Safeguarding Policies are available on request from the school
- ANTI-BULLYING POLICY
- BEHAVIOURAL POLICY
- CENTRAL STAFFING RECORD
- CHILD PROTECTION AND SAFEGUARDING POLICY
- CHILD PROTECTION EARLY INTERVENTION CONNEXIONS
