Our safeguarding team:
We follow Keeping Children Safe in Education, a statutory guidance for schools and colleges from the DfE. You can read it in full on the Gov.uk website by clicking the link below:
You can also read our school Safeguarding Policy below.
The safety and wellbeing of all children and young people is of paramount importance. Parents and carers send their children to school each day with the expectation that the school provides a safe and secure environment in which their children can flourish. We, therefore, have to ensure that this expectation becomes reality. In order to achieve this, a wide range of measures are put into place with policies including but not limited to:
- Acceptable Use Policy
- Anti-Bullying Policy
- Attendance Policy
- Behaviour Policy
- Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy
- Equalities Policy
- First Aid and Medicines Policy
- Health and Safety Policy
- Looked After Children Policy
- Safer Recruiting Policy
These policies are kept under regular review and the Head of Academy provides termly updates on safeguarding to their seniors.
Safeguarding children and young people is everyone’s responsibility.
The National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC) is a national charity which works to fight child abuse.
Goldthorpe Primary Academy is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
- We are fully committed to ensuring that consistent effective safeguarding procedures are in place to support children, families and staff at school.
- We ensure that all staff receive appropriate training, guidance and support to undertake the effective safeguarding of children.
Any concerns are passed through the designated safeguarding leaders within the school.
