Child friendly Safeguarding Policy
The welfare of our pupils is the school's paramount concern. As a School we do all that we can to promote the welfare of pupils and to ensure that children are protected from harm both within the School and beyond our direct control. To that end we are committed to:
- Establish and maintain an ethos where children feel secure and are encouraged to talk and are always listened to.
- Ensure that all children know there is an adult in the School whom they can approach if they are worried or in difficulty.
- Include across the curriculum, including RPSE (PSHE), opportunities which equip children with the skills they need to stay safe from harm and to know to whom they should turn for help.
It is the responsibility of all staff to be fully aware both of the County's Child Protection Manual (a copy is kept in the Deputy Head's Office) and the School's procedures in relation to child protection.
This policy has been developed in accordance with the principles established by the Children Act 1989; and in line with government publications:
- Keeping Children Safe in Education (KCSIE), 2014
- Working Together to Safeguard Children, 2013
- Framework for the Assessment of Children in Need and their Families 2000
- What to do if You are Worried a Child is Being Abused, 2003, Circular 10/95 DfEE
- Safeguarding Children: Child Protection: Guidance about Child Protection Arrangements for the Education Service, 2004
- DCSF guidance 'Safeguarding Children and Safer Recruitment in Education', ISI Regulations, 2009
- Surrey Area Safeguarding Children Inter-agency Committee Procedures.
All members of staff are provided with a copy of part 1 of KCSIE, 2014, and new staff are provided with a copy as part of our safeguarding induction.
The Trustees takes seriously their responsibility under section 175 of the Education Act 2002 to safeguard and promote the welfare of children; and to work together with other agencies to ensure adequate arrangements within our school to identify, assess, and support those children who are suffering harm.
