Supporting your child at home
Homework provides children with the opportunity to consolidate what they have been doing at school, building firm foundations for the next steps in their learning. It also provides parents with an insight into their childs’ progress. It is important that all children undertake their homework regularly, whether it is reading every night or learning weekly spellings and timetables.
For more information about how you can best support your child please take a moment to view the following documents.
Safeguarding and Child Protection
At Harrowbarrow School staff have a duty of care to keep children safe from harm. All employees receive Safeguarding and Child Protection training. The Designated Safeguarding Lead is Headteacher Andrew Hunt. The Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead is Emotional Health & Wellbeing Support Assistant Abi Nicolle. If you have a concern about a child please speak to one of these officers or contact Cornwall Council’s Multi-Agency Referral Unit (0300 123 1116). For more information about our Safeguarding arrangements please read the school policy.
At Harrowbarrow School we welcome many visitors and volunteers to work alongside the staff and children. All visitors and volunteers must sign in on arrival at reception and will be issued with a Code of Conduct and a Staff & Volunteer Handbook if this is their first visit. It is the policy of the school that all visitors and volunteers who work directly with children should undertake a DBS clearance, otherwise they will not be permitted to work unsupervised. Annually, we ask all staff, governors and volunteers to complete a Disqualification by Association Disclosure Form in line with DfE guidance.
