At Dean Trust Rose Bridge, we make pupil safety and well-being a priority. During school’s partial closures Pupil Support Mangers have been, and will continue to make; daily, weekly and twice weekly phone calls to 172 of our most vulnerable pupils to ensure they are safe, well and supported during this challenging time. In addition to this, other staff have been working hard in order to make welfare and ‘check in’ phone calls to all of our DTRB pupils on a regular basis.
At DTRB we support pupils in numerous ways from daily form time, designated year group Pupil Support Managers, weekly PDC sessions, access to a specialised councillor if needed and targeted support to name but a few.
Our pastoral team within school are highly trained in a variety of different areas in order to be able to support pupils and our families. These include…
In addition to this, we also liaise with a number of external agencies to enable us to provide effective support to both pupils and their families.
Online sexual abuse is a concern for many parents, carers and young people. Visit the website below for more information how you can support your child and ensure that they are safe: https://talk.iwf.org.uk/
The Police Digital Security Centre (PDSC) have produced a number of handy parent guides to support social media use for pupils. You can see them here: https://www.policedsc.com/security-advice/safeguarding
We have produced a number of YouTube videos to support pupils’ self-regulation and to equip them with more coping strategies. Head over to our YouTube Channel to see them!
