SAFEGUARDING

We are firmly committed to the safety and well-being of all our pupils; feeling safe and happy is critical to successful learning.  Keeping your child safe is our first priority.  We follow strict and stringent safeguarding policies that are designed to protect and support all children in our care.

  1. We recognise that all adults, including temporary staff, volunteers and governors, have a full and active part to play in protecting our pupils from harm, and that the child’s welfare is our paramount concern. 

  2. All staff believe that our school should provide a caring, positive, safe and stimulating environment that promotes the social, physical and moral development of the individual child. This is carried out within our Christian values. 

  3. To support the child’s development in ways that will foster security, confidence and independence.

  4. To provide an environment in which children and young people feel safe, secure, valued and respected, and feel confident to approach adults if they are in difficulties, believing they will be effectively listened to. 

  5. To raise the awareness of all teaching and non-teaching staff of the need to safeguard children and of their responsibilities in identifying and reporting possible cases of abuse. 

  6. To provide a systematic means of monitoring children known or thought to be at risk of harm, and ensure we, the school, contribute to assessments of need and support packages for those children. 

  7. To emphasise the need for good levels of communication between all members of staff. 

  8. To develop a structured procedure within the school which will be followed by all members of the school community in cases of suspected abuse. 

  9. To provide training for staff in recognising signs, symptoms and behaviour which are symptomatic of abuse and in responding appropriately.
