Mission Statement

Safeguarding

Nothing is more important to us than the safety and welfare of our pupils. We take rigorous steps to ensure that children stay safe and do not come to any harm. We work closely with parents / carers and a range of professional external agencies in order to secure this.  If you have any concerns, no matter how small they may seem, about the safety or welfare of any child, please contact the school's Designated Lead for Child Protection, Peter Edgington, Headteacher or, Kathryn Beaven, Deputy Headteacher.

 

The ‘Think you know’ website gives very useful advice for children and adults about staying safe onlineLEARN MORE

Prevent Strategy

Prevent is part of CONTEST, the Government’s strategy to address terrorism. The main aim of Prevent is to stop people becoming terrorists or supporting terrorism. Prevent focuses on all forms of terrorist threats e.g. international terrorism and far right extremists (among others).

The Government’s Prevent strategy can be found at the following address: www.homeoffice.gov.uk

The police, Local Authorities, and our partner organisations are working together to help strengthen and empower our communities to reject those who want to cause harm. We work together and focus on three key themes:

  • Safeguarding vulnerable individuals through the provision of advice and support and intervention projects;
  • Working closely with institutions such as Universities, Schools, Prisons, Health, Charities and faith establishments;
  • Challenging terrorist ideology by working closely with other local and national agencies, partners and our communities.

Prevent Team

The Prevent Engagement Team of officers and police staff aim to encourage discussion ensuring that terrorism is prevented from taking root in our communities. They support the wider engagement activities already taking place in schools, places of worship and community groups.

Through this work they aim to strengthen communities in order to challenge the ideologies and messages of hate which lead to terrorism. 

How you can help?

It is important that we all work together so that we can protect our communities. There are many ways you can help:

  • You can get in touch with your local neighbourhood or Prevent team for advice and support, if you are worried about someone you know who you believe may be vulnerable to radicalisation
  • You can speak to your local officers or Prevent contact about helping run community events to bring people from different communities together
  • You can provide facilities that could help us and our partners hold community engagement events.
PLEASE READ OUR 'PREVENT POLICY' IN CONJUNCTION WITH OUR POLICIES ON 'SAFEGUARDING' AND 'CHILD PROTECTION'.

ESafety

When used properly, the internet is a wonderfully positive tool for children and young people. But we need to take a balanced approach, making sure that we promote the positive opportunities, as well as responding to the risks and equipping children and young people to deal with them.

Working together is important in helping us to equip children to stay safe. The conversations that we have with them help gain the real experiences children and young people need to make them safer.
