Safeguarding

Safeguarding is what we do for all children to keep them safe whilst in our care.  Child Protection describes the policy and procedures specifically for those children who are at risk of serious harm or have been seriously harmed.

 

Safeguarding starts as soon as children enter the school and aims to ensure that all our staff are well trained and know how to behave appropriately.  Our staff and volunteers go through all safeguarding checks on successful appointments to the school.  When staff have concerns they know who to speak to and understand the next steps that will take place.

 

Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is everyone’s responsibility. Everyone who comes into contact with children and their families has a role to play. In order to fulfil this responsibility effectively, all practitioners should make sure their approach is child-centred. This means that they should consider, at all times, what is in the best interests of the child. (Keeping Children Safe in Education, 2019)

Deputy Designated Safeguarding Leaders Mr Nick Hart

 

Staff with designated responsibilities for safeguarding undertake regular specialist training.  All staff members and anyone who volunteers with us undertakes training in child protection and this is refreshed as changes take place. We also undertake comprehensive background checks on all staff and any volunteers.

NB. Our safeguarding policy has been redrafted in light of the changes to KCSIE 2019 and will be published once it has been agreed by the governing body.
