Safeguarding permeates every aspect of our School life and many of our school policies make reference to safeguarding and the Keeping Children Safe in Education documents and principles which we follow in all our practice.
Safeguarding is the action that is taken to promote the welfare of children and protect them from harm.
- protecting children from abuse and maltreatment
- preventing harm to children’s health or development
- ensuring children grow up with the provision of safe and effective care
- taking action to enable all children and young people to have the best outcomes.
Child protection is part of the safeguarding process. It focuses on protecting individual children identified as suffering or likely to suffer significant harm. This includes child protection procedures which detail how to respond to concerns about a child.
Teaching children to be safe online is a key priority for us and e-safety is part of our Computing curriculum, as well as permeates our use of IT in all areas. In January 2018 Green and Yellow Class children took part in an e-safety questionnaire so that we could better engage with their issues online. You can see a copy of it by clicking here Pupil e-safety questionnaire and their answers by clicking here E-Safety Answers January 2018 We plan a school community meeting on e-safety early in the Summer term 2018 to respond to some of these challenges.
