At Jubilee Park Academy safeguarding and pupil well-being is of paramount importance and to that end we will always put the physical and mental well-being of pupils first.  This sometimes requires us to share information with other agencies such as the police and children’s services.  We understand that in order for children to achieve their best there needs to be a positive relationship between home and school. Our partnership with parents is extremely important to us.

 

 

As a school we work closely with Sandwell Children’s Safeguarding Partnership to ensure our practice and policies reflect current legislation and guidance.  We invest in high quality training to ensure our staff can recognise the signs of a child whose well-being is being compromised by physical or emotional abuse/neglect.  Staff are also trained in how to manage disclosures from young people and they also receive regular safeguarding updates.

 

 

We are committed to safeguarding and working together to ensure our pupils thrive in a safe and supportive environment whatever their age, ethnicity, religion, disability, sexual identity or gender.

 

 

Anyone visiting the school shares the responsibility to keep children safe whilst on our premises and will be required to work within the guidelines of our safeguarding procedures.  Parental permission is also obtained to publish photographs on the school's social media, external literature or website.

 

 

Our staff work as a team to nurture our pupils and prepare them for the future.  We aim to provide a happy, secure environment in which children will develop intellectually, emotionally, socially and physically.  Meeting the needs of our children is our priority and we consider it a privilege for us to be part of each child’s learning journey.

 

 

 

eSafety

 

Technology and the internet can be fantastic – they can help our children to learn, to create amazing things, to communicate and to entertain themselves and each other. Our children are surrounded by this technology – it is part and parcel of their daily lives.   

  

Using technology and the internet well is about using it safely and responsibly.  Things can go wrong by accident or if behaviour is not sensible or respectful.  Our job is not to stop our young people from using technology but to ensure that they have the necessary knowledge, skills and understanding to successfully navigate themselves through the online world, so they become good digital citizens. 

 

Please review the linked documents at the bottom of the page and the below weblinks for guidance and support around online safety and how you can further protect yourself and your children.

We understand that families are the foundation of communities and play a critical role in the wellbeing of all family members. Families can only thrive if they are connected to, are valued by and have a sense of belonging in their own communities.

 

We have therefore provided information below of how to access support that will strength your own and your families wellbeing.

 

We inspire our pupils to become confident individuals who take ownership of their learning and development through:

 

*  HERO attendance

 

*  House Teams

 

*  School Council

 

*  Safeguarding Council

 

*  School buddies

 

 

 

 

Health & Wellbeing

 

 

At our school, we aim to promote positive mental health and well-being for our pupils, parents / carers and staff.  We pursue this aim using both universal whole school approaches and specialised targeted approaches.

 

The school can provide the following specialised support:

 

*  Nurture provision including Lego therapy

 

*  Focused special needs provision within the MAT ‘Rainbow room

 

*  Counselling sessions

 

*  Focused 1:1 or small group interventions

 

 

 

 

Parent Support Advisor

 

 

Mrs C Green (PSA) is available, through direct contact via our school office plus is regularly available on the playgrounds at peak drop off and collection times.  She remains on hand to discuss any adult learning opportunities, services you may require and general advice.

 

Her work involves providing a number of learning opportunities and events for our parents and the wider local community.  Courses and events we run are held on site and at partner locations in the Tipton area. 

 

She works closely with a number of services to manage local learning opportunities, community events and maximise the facilities available to you in the area.  Most activities are offered free of charge and crèche facilities will be provided (according to the number of adults involved and the need).

 

At present there are a number of parent workshops, parent pop-ins and courses running in our school.  These can be found on the school diary.

 

 

 

 

Healthy Eating

 

 

Healthy food choices are important to a child's physical and mental development.

Family Support

 

 

At Jubilee Park Academy we value the contributions that parents and carers make to the school and offer many opportunities to get involved.

 

Most parents/carers/families need support from time to time.  We hope as a school community, we can offer support, advice and guidance to assist families if requested. 

 

We have a school based family support worker, who work with families on a variety of different issues ranging from behaviour management advice to safeguarding concerns. We work closely with other agencies, such as housing and have good links to local community groups.

 

We run a 'pop in and see us' session on Monday and Friday afternoons.  If you have any concerns or require any advice please ask the reception for an appointment.

Nurture

 

We have a designated Nurture facility, which has been successful running in the school for over 6 years.  Nurture is an important support mechanism for many of our children and allows for the social and emotional needs of pupils to be targeted and developed in a purposeful environment.  We use Boxall Assessments to set individualised targets and track progress against these.?

 

At Jubilee Park Academy it is our vision that all children are entitled to develop to their fullest potential academically, socially and emotionally.  We encourage our pupils to be healthy individuals, enabling each child to grow in confidence and be able to fully participate in the wider community with confidence.
