Safeguarding

The Central Learning Partnership Trust takes the safety of our young people extremely seriously.

Safeguarding is what we do for all children and young people to keep them safe whilst in our care. Child protected describes the policy and procedures specifically for those young people who are at risk of serious harm or have been seriously harmed.

The welfare of each and every student at Coppice is of paramount importance and we aim to provide a caring, supportive and positive environment where children can feel safe, are able to learn and develop themselves. Adults in our school take all welfare concerns seriously and encourage children and young people to talk to us about anything that may worry them.

Coppice use Impero Classroom and Network Management software as a tool to support safeguarding online in school.

The safeguarding team at Coppice has 3 named members of staff and a wider pastoral team including year leaders and pastoral managers, to meet the needs of our young people.

We support all pupils at Coppice, paying close attention to those, most vulnerable. We ensure they receive as much support as necessary, helping them to overcome barriers to learning, achieve the best results possible and help secure a post 16 place.

We work closely with professionals in outside agencies, including the Police, School Nursing team, CAMHS and Children’s Services (to mention a few) who help to offer wider support for our youngsters. The pastoral team deliver regular assemblies and in house mentoring to ensure key trends are addressed and students are made aware of the support available to them.

If you feel we can help, please contact the main reception where your call will be directed to us.
