Safeguarding

Safeguarding is everybody’s responsibility

Safeguarding is an integral part of our life at St. Andrew's and is everyone’s responsibility.  All St. Andrew's staff receive yearly training to help them to recognise abuse and to promote the welfare of our children.  All staff and Governors are asked to read and sign to say that they understand the St. Andrew's Safeguarding Policy and the most recent version of Keeping Children Safe in Education document on a yearly basis.

It is important for children to feel safe.  Our day-to-day practices, our curriculum and through the use of specialist organisations such as the NSPCC, help empower our children by teaching them how to recognise abuse, stay safe on and offline and to use their voices to speak out.  Children are encouraged to talk to a trusted adult if they are worried about anything. This can be done face to face or a note can be put in their class talk boxes. Zones of Regulations information in displayed as pupils enter the school and in every classroom. Our Learning Mentors complete check-ins with pupil upon entry in the morning and at various times throughout the day.

At times, we may need to share information, get advice or work in partnership with other agencies if we are concerned about a child’s welfare. We believe it is always better to be transparent with all parties at these times and work together to achieve the best outcomes.

There may be times when you need extra help and support. If this is the case, please come and talk to us. There are many ways in which we can help.
