At Chaucer School Every Child Matters

At Chaucer we want all students to feel safe. You need to let someone know. In school you can speak to any member of staff who will ensure the information is given to the right people to deal with any bullying issues or you can fill in the form below. Don't be afraid to tell someone and don't suffer in silence.

We all have a statutory duty to safeguard all children and promote their welfare. If you have any concerns about any child or feel that something may be troubling them you should tell a member of the safeguarding team straight away, particularly if you have serious concerns about physical, emotional or sexual abuse or neglect.

Issues such as a child's appearance, poor personal hygiene, risk taking lifestyle/behaviours etc should also be reported to a member of the Safeguarding Team. We would rather have too many small referrals than miss a worrying situation. We also may have other information which added to your small concern builds into a worrying picture.

We strive to ensure all our students meet the Governments Agenda for the Every Child Matters Outcomes and believe passionately that all our students have a right to ;

  • Be Healthy
  • Stay Safe
  • Enjoy and Achieve
  • Make a positive contribution
  • Achieve Economic Well-Being
