Safety in our School
Keeping children safe is a high priority at Horn's Mill Primary School. Our curriculum supports the children's safety in addition to an open, trusting and child focussed ethos in school.
If you have any immediate concerns about a child's safety or wellbeing then please contact the Cheshire West and Chester team at iART 0300 123 7047 during office hours (8.30-5pm Monday to Thursday ) or the Emergency Duty Team out of hours on 01244 977277. The police can also be contacted on 0845 458 0000 (999 in an emergency).
Alongside a carefully planned PSHE curriculum, we endeavour to support children's personal development by providing a range of opportunities to enrich and consolidate their understanding of how to keep themselves safe. These include assemblies and activities in the themes of anti-bullying, Childline, NSPCC, road safety, building site safety, online safety, bonfire and halloween safety, stranger danger and appropriate behaviour and conduct in school.
We want children to feel safe at all times and this means that both our Behaviour and Relationships, and our Anti-Bullying policies are robust and effective. The 'Child Friendly' versions of these policies are shared with the children in school, and are below if you would like to reinforce these messages with your child at home.
Let's Walk (for Team 3/4)
Let's Walk is a child pedestrian training programme which aims to increase children's knowledge and understanding through practical experience and training, to prepare them to become independent road users.
Bikeability (for Team 5/6)
Let's Bike is an off-road cycle training course, similar to Level One of the national Bikeability scheme. It takes place on the school playground and is run by volunteer instructors from the school that are fully trained and supported by the Road Safety Team.
