Cedar Road Primary School

At Cedar Road we are committed to being an inclusive school, providing the best possible standard of education for every child.

Parent Information

At Cedar Road, we believe that it is important that the academy works in partnership with parents and carers to ensure the best for all our pupils.

Parents are invited to contact the Class Teacher whenever they wish to discuss anything concerning their child and meetings can be arranged over the telephone or by letter at mutually convenient times.

If you need to speak to the Class Teacher urgently, then you will usually be able to catch them on the playground after school finishes, alternatively please arrange an appointment through the office. Parents should bear in mind, however, that teachers may have prior arrangements or other commitments.

As well as informal visits, parents will have the opportunity to attend the school on two formal evenings to discuss their child’s progress and to view their work. The first consultation is usually held in October. This occasion gives parents and teachers the opportunity to discuss the new year group and the period of ‘settling in’. A second parents’ evening is held in the Spring Term, usually in March. In July the annual written report is sent home and parents are invited into school to look at their child’s work as part of an informal open evening.

We use My Family Coach to help our parents and carers understand their children’s behaviour. My Family Coach is a free website written by behaviour experts with 20 years’ experience working with over 5,000 schools.

Cedar Road Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of young people. Providing a safe environment for all our students, staff and visitors is at the upmost importance to us.

Our Safeguarding Team

Safeguarding Team (ID 1137)




 Safeguarding Information for Visitors

An important aspect of our ethos is ensuring that our students feel safe and secure at school at all times. We hope that this information will provide you with useful advice when visiting us.

What are my responsibilities as a visitor?
All of those who come into contact with students through their paid or voluntary work are responsible for their own actions and behaviour. We all have a duty to safeguard and promote the welfare of the students. Visitors should act promptly if they witness any incident which could give rise to concern. All incidents must be reported to a member of the Safeguarding Team named below.

Signing in and out 
All visitors to Cedar Road Primary School must sign in at reception. Visitors will be issued with a visitor’s pass which must be worn at all times. When leaving, all visitors must sign out and return their visitor pass. You may be asked to provide ID and a copy of your DBS certificate.

Fire & Evacuation
• There will be a continuous bell 
• You must leave the building by the nearest exit and move onto the school field reporting to the office staff
• You must not re-enter the building until told it is safe to do so

What should I do if I am worried about a student?
If whilst working with a student you become concerned about:
• Comments made by the student
• Physical appearance of the student
• Changes in the student’s behaviour or demeanour
Please report these concerns to a member of the Safeguarding Team named below.

What should I do if a child makes a disclosure to me? 
If a child says something to you which you think involves a concern about their safety or protection, please take the following four steps:
1. Listen
2. Do not promise confidentiality 
3. Report immediately to a DSL
4. Record the details of what they said

How do I assure my behaviour is always appropriate? 
Appropriate relationships with children should be based on mutual trust and respect. Do not photograph children without permission, exchange emails or text messages, contact students on social media or give out your own personal details.

Safeguarding at Cedar Road

Here at the Cedar Road Primary School, we take our Safeguarding role extremely seriously; striving to provide the strongest possible support for all our students.

The welfare and safety of all our children is paramount.  Very occasionally we have concerns that are raised that we may feel, by talking directly to you, may put the child more at risk.  In some instances, these cases are then referred to Social Services.  This procedure enables us to protect children at risk and we make no apologies for ensuring that the students in our care remain safe.

Our formal Safeguarding & Child Protection policy is below, and we remind parents/carers to speak to us if you are worried.

If you have any concerns about a child outside of school time you can call the local Multi Agency Support Hub (MASH) for advice (anonymously if needs be) on 0300 126 7000 or click on the following links:

Northamptonshire Safeguarding Board or Young Northants website

All members of staff receive Safeguarding training. Overseeing any concerns are our Designated Safeguarding Leads:

Clair Mills / Helen Perumalla / Harriet Dowling

Our aim is to be as transparent as possible, to share safeguarding concerns with relevant personnel to ensure we are providing a safe environment for students and staff alike.

Throughout the academic year, our Safeguarding team plan to deliver varying focus to students through assemblies, guest speakers and class group activities to develop their own understanding of keeping safe and supporting each other during difficult times; protective behaviours, e-safety, anti-bullying, anxiety, wellbeing, healthy relationships and more.

The School Nursing team work closely with our Safeguarding and first-aid team to ensure students continue to receive support around keeping healthy, immunisations, emotional health, sleep difficulties and more.

Should you, as a parent/carer or student, have any safeguarding concerns that you wish to share with the School please follow our contacts link below to direct to the right member of our Safeguarding team.

Contact can be made through our main school telephone number 01604 712645.

From time to time we will release useful and relevant safeguarding notices to parents/carers – these will be sent via email and/or MCAS.
