Anti-Bullying

We take bullying very seriously at Cofton. If you are a child suffering from bullying, speak to a trusted grown up. Below is some advice for our pupils and our parents/carers.

Advice for Parents/Carers

 Safeguarding Concerns

If you have safeguarding concerns about a child or family, you can speak with Mrs Dudt, our Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL), or Mr Bentley (Deputy DSL) or put your concerns in writing. You can also contact the Local Authority on: 0121-303-1888 to report an urgent  concern or to seek advice. If you believe a child is in immediate danger, please call 999.  

Childline

Childline can be contacted on: 0800 1111. Calls are free. It is a private and confidential service for children and any young person up to the age of nineteen. You can contact a ChildLine counsellor about anything - no problem is too big or small.  

Support for Families

If you feel you are finding it difficult to cope for any reason (e.g. children's behaviour at home, mental health issues, debt, bereavement, illness etc...), please come into school to talk with either Mrs Dudt (DSL) or a member of staff you find it easy to talk to. If not, send a letter to school or make a telephone call to us. We can help you to access a number of services that can provide free support and advice for you.  

The Prevent Duty

As part of Cofton Primary School's ongoing safeguarding and child protection duties, we are fully supportive of the government's Prevent Strategy.

At Cofton, we build pupils’ resilience to radicalisation by promoting fundamental British Values, enabling our pupils to challenge extremist views.
