DESIGNATED SAFEGUARDING LEAD
THE WELFARE TEAM
We have a team of staff committed to the welfare of the children and families at our school. They are available for children and their families to talk to if they have any concerns. They are able to complete CAF forms and will attend CAF meetings with you in order to help get the right support for your families. They are trained in counselling techniques as well as behaviour management, Specialist interventions and are first aid trained.
Welfare & Behaviour Support
Sometimes 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.
If your child has a medical condition of which the school needs to be aware, 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.
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. The following website contains a lot of relevant and useful information:
The NHS also recommends the NSPCC website:
The NSPCC can also be contacted on 0808 800 5002. They are able to offer support with setting up parental controls, adjusting privacy settings and getting advice on your child's social networking.
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 Mr Lee (E-Safety Safeguarding) or the Welfare Team if you have any questions or concerns.
