We take the safety of our young people extremely seriously.

Safeguarding is what we do for all children and young people to keep them safe whilst in our care. A child protected describes the policy and procedures specifically for those young people who are at risk of serious harm or have been seriously harmed.

The welfare of each and every student at Newbridge is of paramount importance and we aim to provide a caring, supportive and positive environment where children can feel safe, are able to learn and develop themselves. Adults in our school take all welfare concerns seriously and encourage children and young people to talk to us about anything that may worry them.


Concerns about the safety of a child must be reported immediately through “CPOMs”

“CPOMs” is the school online safeguarding system, available to all staff. The safeguarding team will receive a notification and will take the appropriate action.

If you do not have access to CPOMs please contact a member of the safeguarding team.

Supporting Families Offer

At Newbridge School we recognise the challenges that families face in bringing up children. There may be times when you need extra help and support. If this is the case please come and talk to us. There are many ways in which we can help as outlined in this offer of Supporting Families. We can also help to plan specific support for families in the forms of Supporting Families Plan and My Assessment where we can work together to set and achieve outcomes.

The diagram below shows the range of needs at different levels. We use this graduated approach to make sure we provide the best support for different families’ individual situations


Providing Supporting Families to our pupils and families at Newbridge means we are more effective in promoting support as soon as we can. Supporting Families means providing support as soon as a problem emerges, at any point in a child’s life, from the foundation years through to teenage years.
