Always Learning and Achieving Together

Keeping your children safe (Child Protection)

Frogwell Primary School fully recognises its responsibilities for child protection and that because of our day to day contact with children, school staff are well placed to observe the outward signs of abuse. The school will therefore:

  • Establish and maintain an environment where children feel secure, are encouraged to talk, and are listened to
  • Ensure children know that there are adults in the school who they can approach if they are worried
  • Include opportunities throughout the curriculum, including ICT and PSHE, for children to develop the skills they need to recognise and stay safe from abuse (including online abuse)

 

All adults working in school (including staff, governors, volunteers, and contractors) have a duty to protect children and take actions if they are worried or concerned. Through our actions and use of a clearly defined and consistent approach to keeping children safe and responding to concerns, we aim to create a caring, enabling and effective learning environment. We lead by example where courtesy and good manners are expected at all times by all members of the school community.  No one will walk past concerns.

Our aims are built around the values at the core of the International Primary Curriculum. These values are interpreted within the aims of our Child Protection Policy in the following ways:

 

Adaptability / Resilience

 

Providing a safe environment in which children can learn and develop.

 

Never ignoring a concern, always taking it seriously and following procedures to ensure our pupils remain safe and secure and have their needs met.

 

Morality

Ensuring we practice safer recruitment in checking the suitability of staff and volunteers to work with children.

 

Taking all concerns seriously.

 

Communication

Developing and implementing policies and procedures for identifying and reporting cases, or suspected cases, of abuse.

 

Raising awareness of child protection issues and equipping children with the skills needed to keep themselves safe.

Thoughtfulness

Supporting pupils who have been abused or neglected in accordance with their agreed child protection plan.

Cooperation

Working with parents and other agencies to keep our children safe.

Respect

Recognising that all people need to be treated with respect and courtesy.

Keeping Your Child Safe Online - E-Safety 

 

The Internet is a wonderful place, full of new ideas and experiences, but we all know that it has it's own unique set of dangers, especially to children.

At Frogwell, children are always under supervision when they are using the internet, our staff have had e-safety training and our network has a number of e-safety measures permanently in place - this may not be the case at home! 

This section of the website is all about making sure you, as parents and carers, have access to all the information, help and advice you need to help ensure that your children are safe on the internet at home.
