IT’S the Hampshire school that goes the extra mile to make sure its children are safe.

Teachers at Marchwood Church of England Primary School have loads of ways to teach their pupils about safeguarding.

From not giving out personal details online, to crossing the road carefully, not playing with matches and knowing when to say ‘no’ to someone, the children are being taught how to look after themselves.

But it’s all done within the Christian ethos of the school, and an emphasis on British values including listening to each other.

And as young as the children are they are already learning about democracy, being self-reliant and how to care for the people and animals around them.

The children themselves come up with ‘charters’ for how they want the school day to run, and how to treat each other.

At their 2013 Ofsted inspection they were rated ‘good’ and inspectors said: “Children make a good start in the reception classes because teaching is consistently good and there are good opportunities for play and exploration”.

They added that the leadership team is “ambitious” and that children make “good progress” - while provision for disabled children is “a strength”.
