Safeguarding

 Safeguarding at Warrender school:

 

Children and young people have a fundamental right to be protected from harm: at Warrender School we are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of the children in our care. The protection of children from abuse – both at home and in school – is a key part of our commitment.

 

Child abuse can come in many forms: neglect, physical injury, sexual or emotional abuse. It can happen to any child at any time.

 

At Warrender School our aims are:

  1. To work together to create an environment where every individual is respected and valued, and where everyone feels safe
  2. To have clear and straightforward Safeguarding procedures which are known and understood by all staff
  3. To ensure that all members of staff understand their responsibilities with regard to Safeguarding
  4. To support all in our community to have access to any support needed

 

To achieve these aims our staff should:

  1. Know the main signs and symptoms of suspected abuse
  2. Be aware of lines of communication within the school
  3. Understand their own role in reporting concerns to appropriate staff
  4. Take advantage of opportunities in the curriculum to promote Safeguarding

 

We provide regular training for our staff and governors about Safeguarding and follow our rigorous policy.

 

Through our PSHE lessons, children are taught about keeping safe and different types of behaviour which are not acceptable. We also have regular visits from children’s charities such as ‘Childline’ who deliver assemblies and workshops.

 

If you have any concerns about the safety of your child either inside school or outside of school please speak to Mrs Connolly (Safeguarding Lead).
