Safeguarding children is given the utmost importance at St Luke's.

It is our firm belief that all children must feel safe and happy in their environment if they are to achieve their potential.  We have developed policies and strategies to ensure that this is the case, and some of these can be seen here.

The Designated Lead for safeguarding in school is Mrs Cowey, our Headteacher; the Deputy Safeguarding Leads are Mrs Govan, our Deputy Head and Mrs Wilson our SENCO; the link governor for safeguarding is Mr George Lyons.


School has been made aware of a video game called 'Poppy Playtime' which is a horror game BUT has no age restrictions. A character in the game called 'Huggy Wuggy' is also a youtube video with horrifying song lyrics and images. 'Huggy Wuggy' videos are also on Tic Toc. The terrifying character is also a soft 'toy' on Amazon. This content is very frightening and last week Reception pupils have reported to staff that children in school are playing the game and recreating scenes in school.

Please remember that YOUTUBE FOR KIDS, which filters out horrifying content, is available by setting up this link: 

YOUTUBE FOR KIDS can also be downloaded from the APP store on your smart devices. 

On a different note pupils in school are asking questions about the crisis in Ukraine - as this features so prominently in the news. BBC newsround has a short video to support us in dealing with worrying news items that make us feel anxious. It is called 'Advice if you are upset by the news' and can be found at

We hope parents and carers find this information useful.
