Safeguarding Statement

Safeguarding 

 

This school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. The Governing Body has a duty of care to pupils and all members of the school community. There is a comprehensive Safeguarding policy in place which, along with a policy for Health and Safety and a Prevent strategy, is regularly reviewed by the Governing Body.

 

Our Safeguarding policy can be found on the school website under the Policies section and is also available upon request from the school office. The children have also developed a child friendly safeguarding policy which is displayed around school, under the Policies section, and on the Class pages of this website

 

Our designated member of staff for safeguarding is Ms Lisa Mansfield, our Headteacher. Miss Elliman, our Assistant Headteacher, is deputy safeguarding lead.

 

Our governor with responsibility for safeguarding is Ms Nayna Ahmed.

 

Further information about Kent safeguarding procedures are available at http://www.kent.gov.uk/education-and-children/protecting-children.

 

A copy of our safeguarding guide, which is given to every visitor to the school, and has been sent to every parent, is available here.

Prevent Duty

 

The Prevent Duty aims to prevent young people from being radicalised by, for example, far right extremists or religious extremists.

 

In school we have a duty to care for the children and take note of any child who is at risk of radicalisation, regardless of their background. We also have to take steps to help prevent children being exposed to extremist ideas.  Our overriding concern is that children feel safe and also express tolerance towards all cultures and religions, even when personal views may be different.
