Safeguarding

Together we will create a respectful, caring and safe learning community that inspires all to achieve and flourish.

‘Start children on the way they should go, and even when they are old, they will not turn from it’
Proverbs 22:6

Safeguarding is central to everything we do at Woodseaves C.E. Primary Academy we are committed to safeguarding all children.

Copies of our Safeguarding and Child Protection policy can be obtain on request from the school office as well as the ‘Policies’ section of this website.

Our Designated Safeguarding Lead is Michelle Easthope (Head teacher) and our deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead is Libby Fildes (Deputy Head teacher and Class One teacher).

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.

The toolkit provides three resources that offer practical tips and advice on different aspects of keeping your child safe online. These resources can support parents and carers of any age child to start discussions about their online life, to set boundaries around online behaviour and technology use, and to find out where to get additional help and support.
