We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. We have a number of policies in place that contribute to our safeguarding commitment; please find them on our policies page.
Our designated member of staff for Child Protection and Safeguarding is Odette Morgan, Children's Centre Group Manager. In her absence, Mrs Lee Routledge is also DSP trained.
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 his/her parents/carers first unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child's welfare.
Prevent Duty aims to prevent young people from being radicalised by, for example, far right extremists or religious extremists. We work positively to protect young people from radicalisation and actively supports the Government's Prevent Agenda to counter radicalism and extremism.
We have a duty to care for 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.
