Keeping Children Safe - Safeguarding, Behaviour and Wellbeing - Policies & Guidance

Our school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people regardless of age, ability, race, culture, religion, sexuality or class. Everyone who comes into contact with children and their families and carers has a role to play in safeguarding children.

 

This section contains the information you need to be able to find and understand what we mean by safeguarding and how we ensure we have the systems and processes in place to keep children safe. This section also contains information on how we assure that our work is effective.

 

If you have any questions then please contact either the Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) or Deputy DSL.

  • Glenn Fraser is the DSL.
  • Julia Howard is the DDSL.

The DSL is the person appointed to make sure that schools adhere to their safeguarding policies. The role is to commit resources to safeguarding actions and issues and support and direct staff and parents on safeguarding issues. 

Both staff can be contacted via the school office. You can leave a message and contact details and we will call you back.

 

Our Five Guiding Principles Are:

 

1. Nothing is More Important Than Keeping Children Safe.
 

2. Everyone Has a Part to Play.
 

3. Everyone Must be Vigilant.

 

4. Everyone has an Absolute Duty to Report Concerns and Ensure they are Acted Upon.
 

5. Concerns Must be Reported Immediately.
 

What is Child Protection and Safeguarding?

 

When we talk about safeguarding, we mean things which promote children’s welfare and reduce the risk of them suffering harm. Our polices on our buildings, routines, curriculum planning, behaviour and attendance to name a few are all designed to:

 

  • Protect children from maltreatment;
  • Prevent impairment of children’s health or development;
  • Ensure children grow up with safe and effective care;
  • Allow us to take action to enable all children to have the best outcomes.

 

Child protection is part of this definition and refers to activities undertaken to prevent children suffering, or being likely to suffer, significant harm.
