Safeguarding and Pastoral Care

Safeguarding at Al-Ashraf Primary School

We take the safety of all of our children extremely seriously at Al-Ashraf. All our staff receive regular training throughout the year. We listen carefully to our children and ensure that they have the opportunity to express their emotions so they can be happy in school.

Mrs K Panchbhaya (EYFS manager) is our Designated Safeguarding Lead and Mrs R Nanabawa (HLTA) is our Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead.

Mrs Jadwat is the Safeguarding governor and Moulana Abdullah AH Patel is the Chair of Governors.

The school's safeguarding policy is available here to view.

Pastoral Care & Welfare Support

In order to create an outstanding climate for learning, it is important for us at Al-Ashraf Primary School that our pupils feel happy, supported and cared for in order to offer their best in the classroom.

We have therefore set a pastoral system in place which we believe will provide the support and guidance that students need to help and guide them through any issues that may be affecting their emotional, physical or mental wellbeing.

Maulana Abdullah AS Patel (DH) is our Pastoral Care & Pupil Welfare Lead.

He is available via email:

Alternatively, a dedicated 'Pastoral Care' box is available on the ground floor, opposite the kitchen, outside the DH office.

Do not hesitate to contact him if you have any questions.
