The welfare of our pupils is of paramount importance. We listen to our pupils and take seriously what they tell us. All staff have a duty of care and a collective responsibility for safeguarding.
Any concerns about children are reported to the designated Child Protection and safeguarding staff:
There is a clear policy on Safeguarding and Child Protection procedures in the school. Adults on site are subject to security and identity checks, including the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) checks. ICT systems are subject to appropriate controls and restrictions. Pupils learn about keeping safe online through a specific unit of work and assemblies. Anti-bullying work is explored through the PSHE curriculum and assemblies.
The Internet is an excellent way to learn, to communicate and to have fun.
With the pace of change so rapid nowadays, and with so many opportunities to get on the Internet with computers, tablets, consoles and phones it's important that everyone knows how avoid problems.
We work hard in school to educate our children on how to stay safe online. We also put in place a content filter and rules about online behaviour.
Beyond school we rely on parental support to help children stay safe.
