The Importance of Safety

14 januari 2016

Taking care of children is one of our priorities here at BISS Puxi. We feel privileged to have your child entrusted to our care and know that children need to feel secure and safe to get the best from their school and life experiences. 

  • Primary Students

Our teachers are skilled at building warm positive relationships with the children, recognising and responding to them as individuals, and providing positive support and encouragement. It is important to us that your children are, and feel safe.

You can help us in a variety of ways. Keeping the teacher informed through the Communication Book, or other means, of any concerns that the children may express at home. This means that any small problem can be addressed with your child quickly before things escalate.  Often it can be a worry about work or friendships. We can help in many ways, especially by discussing the matter with you, and working with you to give the child skills and support so they are confident in dealing with the situation themselves. In this way we help them become independent, and build up their confidence and resilience for the future. 

Children feel safe when there is routine. Arriving on time to collect your child at the end of the day is important, or else they worry. Please remember also to keep us fully informed about any change of arrangement. There is nothing more upsetting for a child if the adults around them in school are not sure where they should be. However, we do try to reassure children when we have to phone you to check. Keeping your contact details up to date and being available when we phone is essential.

Finally, please support our new security system. This is designed to try to keep children safer, but its smooth running depends on you knowing the new system and having the appropriate cards for swift entry and exit. The new cards can be ordered online from our website here. If you have ordered one and it has not been sent home, please contact Violet in Primary Reception.

Together we can work to ensure that the children feel comfortable and safe at school. That way they get the most from the school experience and show us happy faces ready to learn.
