Your Child’s Safety

At the heart of the government’s “Every Child Matters” agenda lies the aim that children at school should “stay safe”.

Child Protection

Parents should be aware that the school will take any reasonable action to secure the safety of its pupils. Where there is reason to be concerned that a child may be subject to ill-treatment, neglect or other forms of abuse, staff have no alternative but to follow Child Protection Procedures and inform Social Services of their concern. The Senior designated Officers are Mr McAleese and Miss Boyne.


Bullying is not tolerated at Sir Thomas Boteler Church of England High School. In PSHE lessons and in assemblies we work at preventing bullying and we always encourage children and parents to report bullying. If you have any concerns, please contact your child’s Head of House or Form Tutor.


The Internet is a powerful tool that can contribute to raising educational standards and help to promote achievement.  It is an essential element in 21st century life. The school has a duty to provide pupils with a safe and secure online learning environment. We use a monitoring and filtering system which is very effective in blocking inappropriate material and misuse of the Internet. If a pupil abuses the system the school will withdraw access for that pupil for a fixed period or permanently.
