Safeguarding Children at Broadheath CE Primary School and Pre-School

Broadheath CE Primary School and Pre-School believes that it is always unacceptable for a child to experience abuse of any kind.  We recognise our responsibility to safeguard the welfare of all children.  We will provide staff and volunteers with guidance to follow when they suspect a child may be experiencing abuse or at risk of harm.  We work co-operatively with other agencies to safeguard and promote the welfare of children.  We ensure that our concerns about our pupils are discussed with parents/carers first - unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child's welfare.

Safeguarding Statement

Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy

DoWMAT Child Protection and Safeguarding Statement 2023-2024

We believe that pupils have a right to learn in a supportive, caring and safe environment which includes the right to protection from all types of abuse; where staff are vigilant for signs of any pupil in distress and are confident about applying our safeguarding processes to avert and alleviate any such problems.

Safeguarding is about ensuring that everyone is safe from harm – safe from bullying, safe from people who could abuse, safe from discrimination or harassment, making sure that we all feel safe in our environment.

We believe that it is completely unacceptable for a child to experience abuse of any kind. We recognise our responsibility to safeguard the welfare of all children. We provide staff and volunteers with guidance to follow when they suspect a child may be experiencing abuse or at risk of harm. We work cooperatively with other agencies to safeguard and promote the welfare of children. We also ensure that our concerns about our pupils are discussed with parents/carers first - unless we have reason to believe that such a move would have an adverse effect on the child's welfare.

If you are ever concerned about the safety or well-being of someone at our school please talk to one of the school’s Designated Safeguarding Leads (DSLs)

Our school has been given the opportunity to take part in a national project, which is being run locally in partnership with Worcestershire County Council and West Mercia Police. Operation Encompass is a process whereby the police and county council will inform a member of staff if a child or young person has experienced any domestic incident. This will be done prior to the start of the next school day. Information sharing between professional agencies allows school staff to provide emotional and practical support to their pupils experiencing domestic abuse.
