Safeguarding and Child Protection

The welfare of our pupils is the school’s paramount concern. We  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. We recognize that all adults have  a full and active part to play in protecting our pupils from harm.

School owners will ensure that:

– DBS checks are in place for teachers and teaching assistants  – the school operates safe recruitment procedures

– the school has procedures for dealing with allegations of abuse  against staff and volunteers

– teachers undergo regular trainings on Safeguarding and Child  Protection regulations

– our school will support all pupils by encouraging self-esteem and  self-assertiveness, through the curriculum as well as our  relationships

– our school will support staff by providing opportunities to talk  through their concern and seek to take further support as  appropriate

– we notify Social Care as soon as there is a significant concern – we recognize that all matters relating to child protection are  confidential

– we recognize that the school plays an important part in the  prevention of harm to our pupils by providing pupils with good  communication with trusted adults and supportive friends

– we carry out annual risk assessment of the teaching venue to  ensure the health and safety of our pupils

Our Safeguarding and Child Protection policy will be monitored and  evaluated annually before the start of a new academic year.
