Safeguarding & Wellbeing

Safeguarding and Student Wellbeing

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, Inclusion and SEND policies.
All staff receive annual Child Protection and Safeguarding update training and are aware of the procedures for passing concerns within the 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 at or via the school office on 0203 907 6464.

Spotlight on Wellbeing

We believe success at school is determined as much by well-being as it is by academic ability: if students 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 their teachers.
