Behaviour support

CAF processSometimes we all need a little extra support. The CAF process helps to find solutions.

What is a CAF? (Common Assessment Framework)
A CAF is a way for people who work with children to help get them and their families the correct support, when they need it.  There is a huge variety of support available, that parents and carers are not always aware of. This is a way to assess your child’s needs and to find the correct route to help them. The support a child or family need can vary immensely.  It can be concerns with behaviour, emotional wellbeing, learning difficulties, housing, etc. The form is usually filled in at school by a member of our welfare team, alongside the parent/carer. All information is used only with parental consent.

Care Plans
If your child has a medical condition that the school needs to be aware of then a care plan will be initiated by the school health team at your request. These plans ensure that all appropriate staff are fully up to date with your child’s needs and any medical intervention they may need.

Anti-bullying
At Roman Hill we are committed to preventing all forms of bullying and are constantly reviewing our policies and procedures to ensure that concerns are identified early to provide rapid help for children.All staff at Roman Hill are aware of the importance of being pro-active in dealing with incidents of bullying.  We endeavour to prevent bullying from happening in the first place.

Keeping Children Safe – Sexting

There has recently been advice from the NHS about how to help your children understand the dangers of sexting:

http://www.nhs.uk/Livewell/Sexandyoungpeople/Pages/sexting-images-risk-young-people.aspx

This website had a lot of relevant and useful information.

The NHS also recommends  the NSPCC website:

https://www.nspcc.org.uk/preventing-abuse/keeping-children-safe/sexting/

The NSPCC  can also be contacted on 0808 800 5002. They are very helpful  if you want to know how to set up parental controls, adjust privacy settings, and get advice on social networks.

We hope that the above information will help be of help.  Please feel free to call the school at any time and make an appointment to see Mrs Etteridge (DSL) or Mrs Baldwin (E-Safety Safeguarding) or the Welfare Team if you have any questions or concerns.
