Safeguarding and Wellbeing Committee
As a school we have a fantastic Safeguarding and Wellbeing Team, consisting of Key Stage Two children who are working with Miss Wood to look at safeguarding and wellbeing within the school.
This term the team are working very hard on a range of tasks. Anti Bullying Week this year is 15th-19th of November, the team are working on a power point assembly for the whole school to mark this. As a school we are also having a visit from the local Police to discuss Anti Bullying and the whole school are celebrating Odd Sock Day on the 15th of November.
The team are also preparing some Pupil Voice questions to use with their peers to gather their views and safeguarding and wellbeing within our school community.

Reading Well for children provides quality-assured information, stories and advice to support children’s mental health and wellbeing.
The booklist is targeted at children in Key Stage 2 (aged 7-11), but includes titles aimed at a wide range of reading levels to support less confident readers, and to encourage children to read together with their siblings and carers.
Our Safeguarding & Wellbeing Team are encouraging all children in school to take part in ‘The Big Ask’ – the largest ever consultation held with children. In this survey the Children’s Commissioner is asking children and young people what they think is important for their future and what is holding young people back. The Children’s Commissioner will use what children and young people tell her to show the Government what they think and what they need to live happier lives. It’s an exciting opportunity to help us think big and it’s a chance for every child in England to have their voice heard. For more information click the link below.
On the 29th of March the children safeguarding and wellbeing committee delivered a very informative assembly to our children in key stage 2. This included looking at what power for good means here at Vernon and then taking time to introduce all of our “Captains for Good”. The children also delivered a presentation they had written looking at Anti Bullying. The children in the audience got involved and there were some great questions and comments.
Well done team “Captains Assemble”
Finally we have lots of planning underway for our celebration of children’s positive mental health during our Rainbow Day May 20th 2022.
