A Statement from the Governors

Posted on October 20th, 2017 A Statement from the Governors

It has come to our attention that there have been some negative comments about our school and staff on social media regarding bullying.

The safeguarding of our children is of the utmost importance. All allegations of bullying are taken seriously and we operate a zero tolerance policy towards bullying.

If any parent/carer has any concerns regarding the safety of their child, then please contact the School directly for an appointment to discuss with our senior leadership team.

The governors fully support Mr Bond and all staff at Woodfield and thank them for their continued commitment. We encourage our parents new and existing to raise any concerns directly and read our recent Ofsted report that supports the changes that we have made and will continue to make to ensure our children learn to be the best they can be in a happy, successful, safe environment.

Ofsted March 2017 – “Safeguarding is effective.

You have ensured that all safeguarding arrangements are secure and thorough. Your recruitment procedures are effective and meet statutory guidance. You make sure that staff are aware of their duties and know what might indicate a pupil is at risk of harm. Staff say they understand what to do if they have concerns about safeguarding and to whom they should refer disclosures. You work well with other agencies to keep pupils safe, communicating regularly and efficiently. Pupils say they know how to keep themselves safe and how to help others stay safe. You have created a culture where safeguarding is a top priority for staff and pupils.”

“Improving learning and pupils’ welfare are obvious priorities for the school.”
