Mrs Notman is the School’s Designated Child Protection Officer. The Head of the Preparatory School fulfills this role in her absence. All staff receive training in Child Protection and follow the procedures set out in the Child Protection Policy.

The safety and well-being of all our pupils is of the utmost importance. It is our collective responsibility to protect pupils from physical, sexual, & emotional harm, and neglect. Please let us know if you or your children have any problems or worries which the school needs to know about such as bullying or upsetting online behavior.

SELFIECOP

Selfiecop is a new app that protects children and teenagers from the dangers of sexting and selfies.  Selfiecop works by emailing parents a copy of every photo or video taken on their child’s smartphone or tablet.  This includes photos and videos captured by the most popular social networking apps.

CHAPLAIN

Our School Chaplain, The Rev’d Fiona Wimsett, organises collective worship, which reflects the Christian ethos of the school.  We continue to enhance and develop our strong Christian ethos. She leads special services in the Preparatory School as well as teaching much of the Religious Education curriculum. Assemblies are an educational experience and provide opportunities for the teaching of certain facts, discussions of particular values and the sharing of insights both locally and around the world.

Pupils may visit the Chaplain if they wish and parents may contact her by calling the main school office on 01626-354505.

Stover employs a School Counsellor who is a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. Teachers or parents may refer a child to the School Counsellor. She can be contacted by parents or staff.

SAFEGUARDING LEADS

Parent Toolkit – Challenging Behaviours

This Toolkit was produced by the South Devon and Dartmoor Community Safety Partnership along with the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner as a response to the difficulties that agencies and
the police are seeing, particularly in South Devon.

Updated guidance for keeping children safe online

We have updated our guidance for parents and carers to keep children safe online. The measures announced over recent weeks to tackle coronavirus (COVID-19), although essential, have disrupted people’s day-to-day lives.

As a result of these necessary measures, almost all of us are likely to be spending more time online, including children. This guidance contains resources for parents and carers to help keep their children safe online.
