Safeguarding & E-Safety
We take the safety and well-being 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 Fildes 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
Woodseaves Primary Academy supports the Government’s PREVENT agenda and promotes RESPECT, TOLERANCE and KINDNESS through our School values. For more information and practical advice, please visit the Educate Against Hate website.
Our Safeguarding Policy and other related policies are below, a paper copy is available by request.
Internet and e-safety form an integral part of ICT at Woodseaves. We understand that use of the internet is expanding and it is becoming an important part of learning and communication. With this is mind we raise awareness of e-safety through the teaching of ICT and acknowledge Safer Internet Day each February with classroom activities and dedicated assemblies from staff and the NSPCC who also conduct workshops for KS2 At Woodseaves all student access to the internet is supervised and monitored by school.
