SEN School Offer
For your information, this document (attachment above) has recently been produced for the LEA. It includes contact details for our SENCo and information about how LRGS supports pupils with SEN.
The school has recently implemented several measures to help ensure pupil safety on the internet, including putting a button on the VLE.
It links through to the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (CEOP) and pupils and parents can click on this button if they wish to report incidents of online abuse, or fear they are in danger of online abuse. There is a 24-hour response. For more information see their website www.ceop.gov.uk
There is some useful information for young people and parents about online safety on the Think U Know website www.thinkuknow.co.uk
Safeguarding Our Pupils
Lancaster Royal Grammar School is committed to ensuring the welfare and safety of all our pupils. We believe that pupils have a right to learn in a supportive, caring and safe environment which includes the right to protection from all types of abuse; where staff are vigilant for signs of any pupil in distress and are confident about applying the/our safeguarding processes to avert and alleviate any such problems.
Safeguarding is about ensuring that everyone is safe from harm – safe from bullying, safe from people who could abuse, safe from radicalisation, discrimination or harassment – and that we all feel safe in our environment.
If you are ever concerned about the safety or well‐being of someone at our school please talk to one of the school’s Designated Safeguarding Leads (DSLs) and Prevent Officers.
