All adults in our school have a responsibility for Safeguarding. All staff have completed Basic Awareness of Safeguarding Training, led by the Local Safeguarding Children Board (LSCB). The most recent whole school staff training took place in November 2013.
All adults in school are required to wear an Egerton Primary School identification Badge, and they must sign in at the school office to receive this.
All staff, governors, students and volunteers undertake a DBS check and details of these checks are kept in a single central record in school.
All the policies in school are kept centrally, the safeguarding policy is reviewed annually and its related policies and practices are reviewed regularly. Our practices and policies reflect the guidance outlined in ‘Working Together to Safeguard Children’ – DfE March 2013.
We believe that it is important to make children and young people aware that unacceptable behaviour towards them should not be tolerated. Our PSHE curriculum supports children to be able to recognise when their safety becomes compromised and to know what they can do about it.
Egerton Primary school supports its pupils by providing contact details for support systems such as Childline. We engage specialists such as the NSPCC and the Local Safeguarding Team in providing engaging learning experiences for children to develop and enhance their understanding of how to keep themselves safe
All staff are committed to multi-agency working in order to ensure that the best possible outcomes exist for all of the pupils at Egerton Primary school.
