SAFEGUARDING

The welfare and safety of all those on site is paramount. We follow Safer Recruitment processes when employing staff.

 
Staff receive regular Child Protection and Safeguarding training, and are aware of how to monitor the children. In particular we focus on how to teach our children how to stay safe. This includes all aspects of e-safety.

 
Volunteers are also reminded of the expectations with in this area.

 
It is important for parents to maintain open dialogues with their children so that should their child have any worries or fears they will feel comfortable and speak directly to their parents. ICT equipment needs very careful and strong defence mechanisms in place so that parents can be reassured about the activities their children get involved with. 
We are rolling out the NSPCC Programme, 'Talk PANTS and Stay Safe' to the children in school. Parents are advised to look at the following leaflets and to visit the NSPCC website where there are lots of resources that can help you. Please follow the links below:
