Safeguarding and Wellbeing
At Orchard School we take the safeguarding and wellbeing of every student very seriously. There are many aspects to this and we think it is important that parents know what the potential risks are and how we as a school, along with the families, can reduce or eliminate those risks.
Our Designated Safeguarding Leads can be reached here.
Among the areas we cover are:
On this page, you'll find a list of useful websites which offer support and advice on how to stay safe online. You will also find some FAQs with some useful answers. If you have any online safety concerns, please speak to a trusted adult, for example your parents/carer or a member of staff at OSB.
We all have mental health, yet it's often something we find difficult to talk about when we're struggling. With one in 10 children and young people in the UK - that's three in every classroom! - suffering from a diagnosable mental health problem, we think it's important that parents know who to turn to for help. Besides speaking to an OSB member of staff, or a trusted adult, this page has a list of useful contacts offering advice and support.
Orchard School Bristol is aware of its responsibilities under Section 26 of the Counter Terrorism and Security Act 2015 and the Prevent Strategy to safeguard pupils at risk of radicalisation. We do this by identifying and risk assessing individuals who may be drawn into terrorism, violent or non-violent extremism.
Recently, the Momo app craze caused concern and we have advice here for parents.
