Our Commitment to Safeguarding
We ensure the safety and wellbeing of our pupils and recognise the importance of educating them in these matters. We also recognise and celebrate the importance of spiritual, social and moral education in our curriculum and effectively prepare our pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of life in British society.
The requirement to ensure that children and young people are able to use the internet and related communications technologies appropriately and safely is addressed as part of the wider duty of care to which all who work in schools are bound. Our E-Safety and Acceptable Use Policy ensures safe and appropriate use. The development and implementation of such a strategy involve all the stakeholders in a child’s education – from our Principal to the senior leaders and classroom teachers, support staff, parents, and the pupils themselves.
There is no place for extremist views of any kind in our school, whether from internal sources – pupils, staff or governors, or external sources – school community, external agencies or individuals. Our pupils see our school as a safe place where they can explore controversial issues safely and where our teachers encourage and facilitate this; we have a duty to ensure this happens. Our Prevent Policy is in line with the Counter-Terrorism and Security Act 2015.
