The school has a responsibility for ensuring children receive the right help at the right time. We have a duty to refer to early Help provisions or Social Care if there are concerns for a child's care of welfare or in cases of suspected abuse or neglect.
Keeping children safe is our highest priority and we expect all staff, governors, volunteers and visitors to share this commitment. Anyone with a concern about a child, however minor it may seem, should report it immediately to a designated person. Further advice on this can be found in the DFE document:
Our child protection policy details the signs and indicators of abuse and neglect, and all adults in regular contact with children receive regular training. The Buckinghamshire Safeguarding Children’s Board website www.bucks-lscb.org.uk has information for professionals, parents and carers and children and young people. Their recommendations of safe working practices and a code of conduct for staff and volunteers are practised in school.
Please be aware of the impact of new technologies on sexual behaviour, for example ‘sexting’. This is referred to in the ‘Keeping Children Safe document’. More information can be found on sexting at www.parentsprotect.co.uk. We have an excellent record for organisational health and safety. Our procedures for emergencies are regularly practised.
'Together, we can tackle child abuse'
This National Campaign reminds us that we all have a role to play in protecting children and young people from child abuse and neglect. Many people do not act because they’re worried about being wrong.You don’t have to be absolutely certain; if you’re concerned a child is being abused or their safety is at risk, speak to someone.
