  • Crockham Hill C E Primary School recognises the importance of providing an ethos and environment within school that will help children to feel safe, secure and respected; encourage them to talk openly; and enable them to feel confident that they will be listened to. We are alert to the signs of abuse and neglect and follow our procedures to ensure that children receive effective support, protection and justice.
  • Our school core safeguarding principles are:
    • That schools are an important part of the wider safeguarding system for children.
    • It is a whole school responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of children as its paramount concern
    • All children (defined as those up to the age of 18) regardless of age, gender, ability, culture, race, language, religion or sexual identity, have equal rights to protection
    • All children have a right to be heard and to have their wishes and feelings taken into account
    • All staff understand safe professional practice and adhere to our code of conduct and other associated policies
    • All staff have a responsibility to recognise vulnerability in children and act on any concern in accordance with this guidance
  • There are four main elements to our safeguarding policy
  • Prevention (e.g. positive, supportive, safe school culture, curriculum and pastoral opportunities for children, safer recruitment procedures);
  • Protection (by following the agreed procedures, ensuring all staff are trained and supported to respond appropriately and sensitively to safeguarding concerns);
  • Support (for all pupils, parents and staff, and where appropriate specific intervention for those who may be at risk of harm);

Working with parents and other agencies (to ensure appropriate communications and actions are undertaken).
