Safeguarding Keeping children healthy and safe from harm
Our pupils are continually taught and encouraged to live healthy lifestyles and adopt safe practices. Our safeguarding policies and practices help to ensure that they are safe, happy and healthy - whether in the real or virtual worlds. School policies are in place to ensure that there is a consistent approach to practices throughout the school and that they are followed by staff, governors and volunteers.
The staff of All Saints recognise we have a full and active part to play in protecting our pupils from harm, that the child's welfare is our paramount concern and that all staff receive regular training to ensure our familiarity with child protection issues. All Saints, along with other services for children and families, works hard to support the needs of children.
There are Designated Safeguarding Leaders for child protection in school: the Headteacher, Mr Rhodes, is the Designated Safeguarding Lead. The School Business & Welfare Leader (Mrs Hales), the SENDCo & Inclusion Leader (Mrs Fahy) and the Assistant Head & Pastoral Leader (Mr Mckrell) are all Deputy Designated Safeguarding Leads.
There is also a named Governor for Child Protection: Mrs Fielding.
The Safeguarding & Child Protection Policy can be viewed online (below) and in school. The policy is reviewed at least annually in line with any changes that may have occurred within the safeguarding environment. We also have a Whistleblowing Policy for dealing with allegations against staff. A link to the safeguarding referral system can be found on this page.
A key document which governs safeguarding in schools is Keeping Children Safe in Education, the latest version of which is also provided below.
