Safeguarding and Child Protection at Whitton Community Primary School

 

Safeguarding at Whitton Community Primary School is considered everyone's business, both Staff and Governors are committed to ensuring every child, who is a pupil at our school, is safe and protected from harm.

 

Our Safeguarding policy has been developed to also ensure that there is appropriate provision in place to ensure that our pupils are safe and adopt safe behaviour, and that staff, governors, volunteers, visitors and parents are aware of the expected behaviours and legal responsibilities in relation to the safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all of our pupils.

 

To achieve this we aim to:

  • Promote safe practice, including regular staff training updates and ensuring safer recruitment procedures are in place.
  • Identify instances where there are grounds for concerns regarding a child's welfare and take appropriate action to keep them safe.
  • Contribute to effective partnership working between all those involved in providing services for our pupils.

 

Whitton Community Primary's Designated Safeguarding Lead is: Clare Hurren (Home School Liaison) supported by the following alternate: Rachel Walker (Deputy Headteacher), Jane Hardy (Deputy Home School Liaison),  Crystelle Edwards (Deputy Headteacher), Our Safeguarding Governor is Carol Pickering.

E-Safety

 

Keeping safe online is very important to us at Whitton Community Primary School.

We aim to keep our pupils safe online and also when using mobile phones, games consoles and wireless technology. We feel it is important to educate our children on the benefits, risks and responsibility of using information technology.

 

All of our pupils and staff have signed our acceptable use of technology agreements and regular updates, reminders and training is given to both staff and pupils.

 

Our e-safety lead is Mr Pitt
