The safety and wellbeing of all children and young people is of paramount importance. Parents and carers send their children to school each day with the expectation that the school provides a safe and secure environment in which their children can flourish. We, therefore, have to ensure that this expectation becomes reality. In order to achieve this, a wide range of measures are put into place:

 

  • Acceptable Use Policy
  • Anti-Bullying Policy
  • Attendance Policy
  • Behaviour Policy
  • Child Protection Policy
  • Clubs Policy
  • Confidential Reporting Policy
  • Equalities Policy
  • First Aid and Medicines Policy
  • Health and Safety Policy
  • Looked After Children Policy
  • Photograph Policy
  • Safer Recruiting Policy
  • Site Security Policy

 

The Governing Board keep these policies under regular review. They ensure the Head Teacher provides termly updates on safeguarding as part of her report to Governors. The Governing Board appoints a named Governor for Child Protection and Looked After Children.

 

Safeguarding children and young people is everyone’s responsibility.

 

The West Sussex Safeguarding Children Board (WSSCB) is a partnership of all the different organisations working to protect children and young people across the county. Their website brings together information for children, young people and their families and the professionals who work with them.

 

 

The National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC) is a national charity which works to fight child abuse.
