At Parkwood Primary School we see the health, safety and well-being of all our children as of paramount importance to all the adults who work in school.
Our children have the right to protection, regardless of age, race, culture or disability. They have the right to be safe in our school. At Parkwood we respect our children. The atmosphere within our school is one that encourages all children to do their best. We provide opportunities that enable our children to take and make decisions for themselves. Our teaching of personal, social and health education and citizenship, as part of the National Curriculum, helps to develop appropriate attitudes in our children and make them aware of their decisions on others. We also teach them how to recognise different situations, and how to behave in response to them.Our school fully recognises the contribution it can make to protect children and support pupils in school.
