Safeguarding & E-Safety
At Woodseaves CE Academy we take the safety and wellbeing of the children in our school very seriously and we expect all staff, volunteers, governors and parents to do the same.
We are fully committed to ensuring that consistent, effective safeguarding procedures are in place to support families, children and staff at school. This means that we ensure that everyone working in our school has successfully completed the necessary clearances to enable them to work with children. All staff must also complete level 1 Child Protection Training and have read the ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education’ document.
All concerns are passed through the members of staff who are trained as “Designated Safeguarding Leads” in school in compliance with the “sharing of information” guidance.
Mrs Gallant is Designated Safeguarding Lead and Miss Hulme is Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead
Safeguarding is not just about protecting children from deliberate harm. It relates to aspects of school life including:
Pupils’ health and safety within school and on visits
The use of reasonable force
Meeting the needs of pupils with medical conditions
Providing first aid
Internet or E-safety
Promoting British Values and preventing Extremism
