Safeguarding health checks - Project K9 this week
All schools should be free from the threat of anything that may harm anyone. From time to time we need to test this, just like we need to rehearse evacuations. On Tuesday as part of a whole range of events planned to reassure everyone we carried out a proactive measure to test this claim. This involved partnering with the Police and an independent organisation to bring trained dogs to search for the potential of any illicit substances, not just inside the school but in the local community.
The aim of the day was to demonstrate we are being proactive and unapologetic in our approach to ensuring a safe school and community for each one of you that we serve.
I wish to send out a clear message that this school, alongside all others schools in the city, must be free from the threat of anything that may harm anyone. Testing this is important to check our integrity but it should also sends out a clear message about how highly we take our safeguarding values. There will be other unannounced events that will take place in the immediate future as we are committed to ensuring the highest standards at KSCS.
Thank you for the positive feedback. I feel proud that this single action further confirms that we are ensuring the safeguarding is effective and always the foremost of what we do.
Talent and Pride within our school
Thank you to the Choir and the students involved in both the amazing Snowman event at the New Theatre on Wednesday and the wonderful Wizard of Oz. After watching both events I came away glowing about the talent inside our school. We have so many talented students and staff that make these extra special events happen. This as it does not happen by magic, but instead by the input of dedicated, talented people.
I take my hat off to all of them for the exceptionally dedicated effort to make the Snowman and Wizard of Oz happen.
