Our OFSTED report is now available Some of the positive comments made in the report include: “The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection”. “Pupils enjoy coming to school and say teachers make the learning enjoyable and interesting”. “New topics cleverly combine a range of national curriculum themes in ways that are engaging, practical and appealing to pupils”. “Teachers teach with enthusiasm”. “They hold high expectations which are clearly reflected in the great care all pupils take with their presentation of their work”. “Pupils’ books for this academic year already show considerable progress has been made”. “Displays in classrooms and around school showcase examples of writing that have flair and technical excellence”. “High expectations across the school mean standards of writing in English and topic books are consistently high”. “Pupils currently in the school are making strong progress because teachers have good subject knowledge and make clear how pupils can improve their work”. “The culture in school is one of high expectations and aspiration for all. You, your leadership team and all members of staff are determined pupils will thrive and attain the best possible standards”. Thank you once again for your continued support. Mr Hodgson Thank you for all your support over the last two years. The children of Green Gates Primary are very special and will always have a special place in my heart. Mr Hodgson

The welfare and safety of children who attend our school is our paramount concern. We promote the health, well-being and safety of the pupils in all we do.

Our children have the right to protection, regardless of age, gender, race, culture or disability. They have a right to be safe in our school.

As stipulated by the Children Act (1989), the Education Act (2002) and the Protection of Children Act (2001), the staff at Green Gates Primary School have a duty to report any concerns that they may have that any child may be at risk from significant harm or may be suffering significant harm, particularly as a consequence of possible abuse.

All adults working with or on behalf of children have a responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of children.

We are a listening school and will always take the time to listen to our pupils and parents and carers.

All staff at Green Gates Primary School undergo a thorough safer recruitment and vetting process. We have a Safeguarding Team which consists of:

  • Designated Safeguarding Lead: Mrs K Lowe (Head Teacher)
  • Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead: Mrs K Stone
  • Designated Safeguarding Governor: Mrs M Ovens (Vice Chair of Governors).

All staff undergo regular safeguarding training. Mrs K Lowe (Head Teacher) is CEOP trained.

We also access support from the academy’s Safeguarding Lead, Mrs Alison Lodge, who undertakes the following services:

  • Completion of Safeguarding Audit.
  • Formal supervision of Head Teacher and Safeguarding team on a term-by-term basis.
  • Staff and Governor Training
  • E-Safety training for children and parents.

Recent feedback from OFSTED parent view indicates that our parents feel that their child is safe in school. This is confirmed with parent questionnaires from June 2018.
