Keeping Children Safe
"Everyone and everything gets looked after here and that makes me feel safe."
Pupil comment to Ofsted Inspectors, March 2023
Safeguarding in a Primary School is much more than compliance with statutory documents. It is about embedding a culture across the whole school that is steeped in the understanding that children are only ready to learn when they feel safe.
It is about accepting and expecting that ‘It can happen here’ and being knowledgeable about the signs and indicators of when things go wrong.
It is about knowing that abuse doesn’t only come from adults and that we have a responsibility to ensure our curriculum educates our children to keep themselves safe and know what to do if they are worried or in need.
It is about creating a culture where every member of the community speaks up to keep children safe.
