Safeguarding children is a core priority for all of us and we prioritise best practice in this regard at all times.
The school has two fully trained Level 3 Safeguarding Officers:
In addition, all our staff have General Level 2 safeguarding training, which is updated every two years and we practice safer recruitment so that all our staff, volunteers and governors have an enhanced DBS check prior to working with our children.
The school policies relating to safeguarding can be found on our policies page.
If you have any concerns regarding safeguarding/child protection please come in and talk to a member of the above designated team. You can also find more information via the links at the bottom of this page.
Prevent relates to the Counter Terrorism and Security Act 2015 which came into force on 01 July 2015.
Since July 2015 there has been a duty on schools to have "due regard to the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism". This is called the Prevent duty.
Prevent is part of the Government's counter terrorism strategy. Its aim is to stop more people from becoming terrorists or supporting terrorism in all its forms.
All our staff have been Prevent trained. Our designated Prevent Officer is Head Teacher, Mr Wilder.
Following the introduction of the Computing curriculum in September 2014 it is the responsibility of all schools to teach e-safety. This will be through specific lessons and continuous provision, advice and support.
At Key Stage 1
Children will be taught to use technology safely and respectfully, keeping personal information private; identify where to go for help and support when they have concerns about content or contact on the internet or other online technologies.
We believe that what you need to do is to help minimise the risks and dangers.
Keeping your child safe is a daily, sub-conscious activity. Whether you are a digital native or digitally naive the good news is that you have all skills you need to help keep your children safe on the internet – you may just not have the knowledge or experience.......yet. It's not possible for children to have a risk-free life. Nor will it help to ban the access and use of the internet.
Do you allow your child to use the internet?
Do you understand Social Networking?
Do you know what a blog is?..or Wiki.....?
Do you know what your child is doing online RIGHT NOW ?
