Safeguarding

Safeguarding

There can be no issue of greater importance to parents and carers, or to schools, than the safety of their children.

Claire Nerval is the Safeguarding Awareness Officer for the Federation. Claire has a regular slot within the federation staff meetings to ensure that all staff are aware of the current guidance surrounding Safeguarding and considering the children within our care from a Safeguarding perspective. She also uses the opportunity to feedback about training she has been on and raise awareness of Safeguarding.

All teachers and support staff across the federation are completing their online Prevent training and all members of staff are at least trained to Safeguarding level 2. Some of our teachers have had LADO (Local Authority Designated Officer) training and we have also had Rob Ellis, an e-learning specialist, in school to do E Safety training for the parents.

Awareness of British Values has been raised through our topic planning across the federation and we have looked to make links to the British Values more explicit.

According to Ofsted, ‘fundamental British values’ are:
  • democracy.
  • the rule of law.
  • individual liberty.
  • mutual respect for and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs and for those without faith.

However, British Values are also complemented by our school Christian Values of respect, determination and relationships.

Prevent – Prevent is a government strategy designed to stop people becoming terrorists or supporting terrorist or extremist causes.

The school recognises its duty to protect our students from indoctrination into any form of extreme ideology which may lead to the harm of self or others.  This is particularly important because of the open access to electronic information through the internet.  The school aims to safeguard young people through educating them on the appropriate use of social media and the dangers of downloading and sharing inappropriate material which is illegal under the Counter-Terrorism Act. The school vets all visitors carefully and will take firm action if any individual or group is perceived to be attempting to influence members of our school community, either physically or electronically. Our definition of radical or extreme ideology is ‘a set of ideas which could justify vilification or violence against individuals, groups or self.’  Staff are trained to be vigilant for spotting signs of extremist view and behaviours and to always report anything which may suggest a student is expressing opinions which may cause concern.  Our core mission of diversity permeates all we do. We place a strong emphasis on the common values that all communities share such as self-respect, tolerance and the sanctity of life. We work hard to broaden our students’ experience, to prepare them for life and work in contemporary Britain. We teach them to respect and value the diversity around them as well as understanding how to make safe, well-considered decisions.

All staff are expected to uphold and promote the fundamental principles of British values, including democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect, and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs. We believe that children should be given the opportunity to explore diversity and understand Britain as a multi-cultural society; everyone should be treated with respect whatever their race, gender, sexuality, religious belief, special need, or disability.
