Safeguarding

 

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. We have a number of policies and procedures in place that contribute to our safeguarding commitment, including our Safeguarding Policy which can be viewed on this link –   Current Year  Safeguarding Policy

Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies, when there are concerns about a child’s welfare. We will ensure that our concerns about our pupils are discussed with parents/carers first, unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child’s welfare.

We actively support the Government’s Prevent Agenda to counter radicalism and extremism.

Our Designated Safeguarding Lead is Mr Wilken (Headteacher). Our Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead is Mrs Robinson (Year 6 teacher). The Governor with responsibility for safeguarding in our school in Mrs Tomkinson.

British Values

A key part of our plan for education is to ensure children become valuable and fully rounded members of society who treat others with respect and leave school fully prepared for life in modern Britain. These values are:

​•    Democracy, 
     We have a school council from R to Y6 which acts on the voice of the pupils and reports to them. In addition the curriculum throughout encourages respect of public institutions and services.
•    Rule of law,
     Children follow rules in school and understand the purpose of them. They are aware of the role of police officers as part of the curriculum (Reception – People who help us).
•    Individual liberty,
     Assemblies and class teaching cover this area with clear messages on responsibility and choices. We have a clear bullying policy and procedure.
•    Mutual respect,
     Similar to above, children receive message about respect which goes hand in hand with liberty.
•    Tolerance of different cultures and religions.
      RE and religious stories in assembly encourage tolerance. Fundraising for others is an important part of the school culture.
British values is a discrete part of the Year 5 Curriculum.

Governors have updated their understanding of British values and how it links to school vision which can be found here.
