Safeguarding and Pastoral Support 
iBOS is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. We have a number of policies and procedures in place that contribute to our safeguarding commitments, including our Safeguarding, Child Protection and Student Welfare Policy.
All staff receive annual Child Protection and Safeguarding update training and are aware of the procedures for passing concerns within school. If any members of the school or local community have concerns about the welfare of a child, please pass them on to the Designated Safeguarding Lead, Mr. Jaumbocus or via the school office on +442039076464 or by email to f.jaumbocus@ibos.education.

Anything you write will be sent anonymously and is confidential. Your report will be sent to Mr. Jaumbocus in the first instance

Spotlight on Wellbeing

We believe success at school is determined as much by well-being as it is by academic ability: if pupils feel healthy and content within themselves and their environment, then they are far more likely to perform to the best of their academic ability.

These links encourage pupils to take responsibility for their health and wellbeing alongside the support they can expect from our staff.

Headspace has a mobile app that makes practising mindfulness much easier! Helping you learn easy techniques that you can transfer from the session into your everyday life. You can sign up for free on their Take 10 programme – just 10 minutes a day for 10 days.

Have a look at the Mental Health Foundation to download free wellbeing podcasts on mindfulness, exercise, diet, relaxation, stress and anxiety.

Happify will develop skills in order to boost emotional wellbeing.
