Safeguarding Children - Information

Guidance and Legislation states that safeguarding ensures;

  • Protecting children from maltreatment
  • preventing impairment of a child's health or development
  • ensuring children are growing up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care
  • taking action to enable all children and young people to have the best outcome

Anyone who comes in to contact with children and families has a role to play in safeguarding.

Safeguarding in School

Our children learn how to keep themselves and others safe and how to recognise and respond to dangers. We encourage all our children to discuss and explore their rights, responsibilities and personal safety through a wide range of activities within the curriculum and through extra curricular experiences.


As a school we take the safeguarding of children extremely seriously and we always encourage the reporting of any concerns no matter how minor they may initially appear to be. All staff and governors are trained in relation to their responsibilities for safeguarding children. All staff have undertaken PREVENT training and are aware of the issues around radicalisation, sexual exploitation and female genital mutilation.


Senior staff have responsibility for reporting incidents to the relevant authorities and wherever possible you are kept informed at all stages of our procedures.


In order to help us keep all children safe the school security is regularly reviewed. For practical safety reasons we have to ask that:


• Children only enter and leave school by the doors allocated to them

• The children do not ride their bikes or bring their dogs on to the school premises

• School gates remain locked to the public during the day

• Children are picked up after taking part in our after school activities unless other written instructions have been received


A manual register is taken at Breakfast Club each morning to ensure we know which children are on premises and that they are safe in school.


Children leaving the premises during the day are signed out using a book and pass system.
