Rooks Heath School Safeguarding Statement
Rooks Heath School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all governors, staff and volunteers to share this commitment. The school community ensures that students are cared for appropriately and safeguarded from harm. Rooks Heath promotes the health, safety and welfare of all members of the School. Students may have had a variety of challenging life experiences, as a school, our aim is to provide a safe and supportive environment which secures the wellbeing and very best outcome of students in our care.
All Harrow schools, including Rooks Heath School, follow the Harrow Local Safeguarding Children Board procedures. The school’s Safeguarding & Child Protection and Safer Recruitment policies are available and can be viewed on the school website.
Safeguarding is about ensuring that everyone is safe from harm - safe from bullying, safe from people who could abuse, safe from discrimination or harassment, safe from radicalisation - and that we all feel safe in our environment.
If your child is ever concerned about safety or well-being or about a friend, we hope to empower students to talk to someone such as a parent, a member of staff at school, including our dedicated Safeguarding Team, Ms Rockell, Miss Dale, Mrs Geoghegan and Ms Cobblah-West.
Rooks Heath provides a framework of in-school interventions, as well as support from outside agencies. These include Compass, Harrow Horizons, Young Carers and WISH.
