Rodney House aims to create and maintain a safe learning environment where all children and adults feel safe, secure and valued and know they will be listened to and taken seriously. Our school is committed to the principles outlined in 'Working Together to Safeguard Children 2015' and implements policies, practices and procedures which promote safeguarding and the emotional and physical well being of children, young people and staff.
Key staff in school
Debbie Morley - Headteacher with overall responsibility for Safeguarding and protecting all children in school (Head@rodneyhouse.manchester.sch.uk)
Dr Juliet Court - Named Governor for Safeguarding and Child Protection
Hannah Jones - Acting Deputy Headteacher - Designated Lead for Safeguarding and Child Protection/Early Help/Looked After Children (H.Jones@rodneyhouse.manchester.sch.uk)
All pupils will know that there are adults in the school whom they can approach in confidence if they are in difficulty or feeling worried that their concerns will be taken seriously and treated with respect. At Rodney House School we have the responsibility to ensure all pupils are able to communicate their thoughts, wishes and feelings; this is promoted through their own reports for meetings/through conversations and observation/social stories/therapeutic approaches/advocating on their behalf.
In our Ofsted inspection of October 2017 Behaviour and Safety was judged as Outstanding.
