Private fostering is when a child or young person under 16 years old (or 18 if they have a disability) is looked after for a period of 28 days or more by someone who is not a close relative, legal guardian or person with parental responsibility. Close relatives include parents, step-parents, aunts, uncles and grandparents.
Parents and Private Foster Carers should notify the Local Authority about a planned arrangement six weeks in advance of it starting or in an emergency, within 48 hours. This is a legal requirement.
Once informed, the Local Authority will work in partnership with the child, parents and private foster carer to make sure that the best possible arrangements are in place for the child.
If you would like more information regarding private fostering, please follow this link https://www.hillingdon.gov.uk/privatefostering. Remember our school Designated Safeguarding Lead is always available for help and support also.
Educate Against Hate
Cherry Lane Primary is a place that inspires and engages young minds. Our school believes in democracy and law, where every individual has a voice that is heard and respected, no matter what their faith or belief. Our school values discussion, debate and learning from others. We believe that division belongs in mathematics, not our community.
There is no place for extremism at Cherry Lane Primary
Following our visit from the NSPCC last month, we continue to instil values in our pupils that we can all be proud of, and also prepares them for life in modern Britain. Our PSHE lessons and ethos in class, echo the message above. The Educate Against Hate website has lots of resources to use with young people and was developed by the Department for Education and the Home Office. It offers advice to parents, teachers and adults who work with young people, so that we can support pupils in an age appropriate manner and tackle conversations about radicalisation and extremism.

We are able to provide our families support from a Family Support Worker, who can signpost parents to services and provide support with many aspects of family life. We also work closely with the Participation Team at The London Borough of Hillingdon to support children in attending school regularly. Our Welfare Assistant is also able to support families and provide access to services.
