All staff at Chipping Sodbury School play a significant part in safeguarding children and young people.  To this end, the school expects all staff and volunteers to share the commitment to keeping children and young people safe.  All postholders and regular volunteers are subject to employment and an enhanced check via the Disclosure and Barring Service.

Here are some quotes taken from our most recent Ofsted report, December 2013.

“All aspects of safeguarding are fully met. The governing body and senior leaders consider that keeping students safe is one of their prime responsibilities.”

“Students are very proud of their school. They show respect to one another and to adults. Students feel safe and their behaviour is good in lessons and around the school.”

“Students feel safe in school and the curriculum supports them well in learning how to stay safe. They have a good understanding of e-safety, including how to avoid unsafe websites.”

“Students report that incidents of all types of bullying, including cyber bullying, are rare and are dealt with swiftly by the school’s staff. There is hardly any evidence of racial or other forms of prejudice-based bullying.”

“The school promotes good relations, equal opportunity and will not tolerate any form of discrimination.”
