Safeguarding Information

Warren Mead Junior School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children

and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

 

 

Safeguarding Statement

 

Warren Mead Junior School recognises our moral and statutory responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of all pupils. We endeavour to provide a safe and welcoming environment where children are respected and valued. We are alert to the signs of abuse and neglect and follow our procedures to ensure that children receive effective support, protection and justice.

Child protection forms part of the school’s safeguarding responsibilities.

 

Safeguarding at Warren Mead Junior School

Warren Mead Junior School recognises its responsibility for safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children.  The school's policy applies to the whole of the school's workforce, along with volunteers, governors and any contractors working on the school site.  The policy focuses on 5 main elements:

 

  • Staff recruitment and selection - ensuring that all staff (volunteers etc.) have been appropriately checked for their suitability, using the Safe Recruitment procedures.

  • Raising awareness of safeguarding issues and equipping children with the skills needed to keep them safe.

  • Developing and implementing procedures for identifying and reporting cases, or suspected cases, of abuse.

  • Supporting pupils who have been abused, in accordance with an agreed, child-centred plan.

  • Establishing a safe and nurturing environment free from discrimination or bullying, where children can learn and develop happily.

  •  

We recognise that because of their day-to-day contact with children, school staff are ideally placed to observe the outward signs of abuse.  Staff in schools will therefore:

 

  • Report any inappropriate behaviour / activities to designated staff.

  • Establish and maintain an environment where children feel secure, are encouraged to talk and are listened to.

  • Ensure that children know that they can approach any adult in school if they are worried and they will receive a consistent, supportive response.

  • Provide, within the PSHE curriculum, opportunities for children to develop the skills they need to recognise, and stay safe, from abuse.

 

It may be helpful for parents to know that the Local Authority requires Head Teachers to report any obvious or suspected case of child abuse which includes non-accidental injury, severe physical neglect, emotional abuse and/or sexual abuse. This procedure is intended to protect children at risk and schools are encouraged to take the attitude that where there are grounds for suspicion it is better to be safe than sorry. This does mean that Head Teachers risk upsetting some parents by reporting a case, which on investigation proves unfounded. In such circumstances, it is hoped that parents, appreciating how difficult it is for Head Teachers to carry out this delicate responsibility, would accept that the Head Teacher was acting in what were believed to be the child’s best interests.
