Safeguarding Children in Banbury (SCIB)

We consider the health, safety and wellbeing of our students to be of the utmost importance and strive to promote the welfare of our students, believing  ‘Every Child Matters’ and supporting them and enabling them to keep themselves and others safe.

Student’s Mentors and Co Mentors are the first port of call should you have a concern, you can also contact their Head of College.  If you have any concerns of a safeguarding nature please contact our Welfare Manager, Elaine King, who is available to support and offer help when students are experiencing issues both in and out of school through providing a welcoming and supportive environment.

Mrs King is one of five Designated Safeguarding Leads on our campus. This means that there are always at least two staff at any one time on site who have had level 3 safeguarding training.

From left to right: Designated Safeguarding Lead: Ms Justine Williams; Deputy Designated Safeguarding Leads: Mrs Elaine King, Miss Sylvia Thomas, Mrs Julia Ingham, Mr Martyn Stowe.

Also we have three Family Support Workers: Ms Chrissie Carter, Ms Nicky Andrews and Ms Julia Humphries.

Mrs King liaises with a number of outside agencies who are further able to support our students including PCAMHS, CAMHS, Health and Social Care and Early Intervention Services.
