What we are doing to make sure we keep you safe
Making sure that you are safe both at school and at home is our top priority. We do lots of work in school to ensure that you know how to keep safe - we have our wonderful PSHE curriculum which is taught; we also keep you safe by teaching you about first aid, road safety, water safety, how to be safe when out riding your bike, about drugs and online safety to name just a few things.
We also do lots of work about relationships, feelings and emotions because we recognise that life can change very quickly and growing up can be difficult. Our aim is that you will move on from our school and be well equipped with all the survival tactics you need! Remember though - once part of the Acomb First School family, always part of the Acomb First School family - you are welcome back any time and we will still help and support you...it doesn't matter how old you are!
There's always someone here for you to talk to.
There is always someone you can talk to in school - ANY adult will ALWAYS make time to listen to you and offer help and advice. They will never promise to keep a secret though because sometimes it is important that we are able to speak on your behalf - we will always be your advocate. We have specially trained people in school to help in all sorts of situations.
We would like to encourage all of you to have a ‘trusted adult’ (parent, grandparent, family member, friend or teacher) at home that you can go to for help, advice and support from too.
There's lots of help and support online from official sources - try these:

We are here to talk to, to seek advice from and as a way of getting help. Don’t keep problems locked away inside: speak out! There is always something that someone can do to help.
