Safeguarding

At Bay House we understand that it is our collective and moral accountability to provide the best quality learning for all – so everyone in the school community makes progress, achieves to their best, and is happy and well.

This School therefore recognises its prime responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of all learners.

The latest version of our Child protection and Safeguarding policy can be found on our policies page here.

If you have a safeguarding concern or something you would like to discuss please contact a member of the safeguarding team.

You can do this by speaking to a member of reception staff.

If your child has an issue or a concern please encourage them to speak to their tutor, year team (HOY or DHOY) or any member of the Safeguarding Team.

Advice for parents

  • Safe4me is a website developed by Hampshire police to offer support and guidance to parents when dealing with a range of issues (anti social behaviour, sexting, drugs etc…). It aims to link the knowledge students gain at school to real life and helps parents address these issues with their children. The safeguarding team have found the teachers sections of the website really useful when delivering information about difficult topics to young people.

  • Keeping Children Safe in Education (KCSIE) is a really helpful document for all school staff and parents. It talks through the different types of safeguarding concerns we may encounter with young people and the methods in which we may choose to use when dealing with these concerns.
