As part of the Every Child Matters (ECM) program Belmore Primary school takes a whole school approach in implementing the 5 National Outcomes of this agenda. 2 of the outcomes were; Feel Safe and Make a Positive Contribution. Feel safe; My setting guarantees that every child attending the school feels secure and protected in the school setting and that they accomplish high standards of behaviour. Every child will feel safe from bullying and discrimination, any child with a worry or problem is encouraged to talk it through with someone who they trust, parents also have the right to know that their child is being well looked after and our school have an ‘Open door policy’ where any parent who has concerns are able to meet with the Head teacher to talk through any worries or anxieties that they may be experiencing. Make a Positive Contribution; My setting ensures that the views of the children attending the school are reflected in the curriculum planning and teaching.
