Safeguarding Processes and information for Rainbow Room
All staff have been recruited in line with KCSIE safer recruitment – all checks in place.
All staff have had up to date safeguarding training based on KCSIE 2023.
All children who attend The Rainbow Room will have gone through a referral process via our Tamworth SEND and inclusion Hub. This helps to identify that the intervention support that The Rainbow Room can offer will be of help to the child.
All of the children who attend The Rainbow Room remain on the roll of their mainstream school. The register will be taken for each session at The Rainbow Room, and this information will be shared with their mainstream school. The mainstream school remain responsible for the child.
If your child is going to be absent from The Rainbow Room for their learning session, please ensure that you inform your child’s mainstream school (in your normal way) and inform The Rainbow Room lead teacher – Mel Brindley. This can be done by calling Anker Valley Primary School on 01827 949319. If you are absent without informing us, we will try to contact you to ensure everyone is safe and well.
