School was graded 'GOOD' for Behaviour & Safety at its last OFSTED inspection!

We are VERY PROUD of the behaviour of the pupils in our school.  Lower Kersal has only seen one permanent exclusion occur in the last seven years.  Children in our school are polite, happy and behave well.


School has a programme of safety talks and safety education sessions.  Qualified life guards visit school to talk to us about the dangers of open water.  Fire fighters come and speak to children about fire safety and escape plans.  School crossing patrol officers teach us all about road safety and local police officers work with us on a range of things including personal and internet safety.  Finally school nurses teach our children about food safety and how to stay healthy.


Children are taught about how the school keeps them safe.  They are aware of the red and green badge system utilised in school to let people know if visitors are allowed in school unescorted or not.  Responses to questionnaires show that children feel very safe here at Lower Kersal.

New statutory safeguarding arrangements came into force in April 2014. Our school has amended its Safeguarding and Child Protection Policies in light of this.  This new policy was ratified by our Governing Body in June 2014.  A copy of our new policy can be downloaded for view here
