A very powerful film which built on their ‘Climate Crusaders’ learning journey perfectly. The children were utterly brilliant and received much deserved praise! 😎 https://t.co/upjvGDSo4q

Safe School, Safe Staff

We will ensure that:

All members of the governing body understand and fulfil their responsibilities, namely to ensure that:

  • there is a Child Protection policy together with a staff behaviour (code of conduct) policy

  • that GLF Schools operates safer recruitment procedures by ensuring that there is at least one person on every recruitment panel that has completed Safer Recruitment training

  • GLF Schools has procedures for dealing with allegations of abuse against staff and volunteers and to make a referral to the DBS if a person in regulated activity has been dismissed or removed due to safeguarding concerns, or would have had they not resigned.

  • a senior leader in each school has Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) responsibility

  • on appointment, the DSLs undertake interagency training (SSCB Modules 1&2) and also undertake DSL ‘New to Role’ and the ‘Update’ Course every 2 years

  • all other staff have Safeguarding training updated as appropriate

  • any weaknesses in Child Protection are remedied immediately

  • a member of the SSB is nominated to liaise with the LA on Child Protection issues and in the event of an allegation of abuse made against the Headteacher

  • Child Protection policies and procedures are reviewed annually and that the Child Protection policy is available on each school website or by other means

  • the SSB considers how children may be taught about safeguarding. This may be part of a broad and balanced curriculum covering relevant issues through personal social health and economic education (PSHE) and/or for maintained schools through sex and relationship education (SRE).

  • that enhanced DBS checks are in place for all GLF staff and members of the GLF SSB

 

The Lead DSL in each school is a member of the Senior Leadership Team. There will also be at least one Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead. These Officers have undertaken the compulsory training delivered through the SSCB (2 days), or by an approved external training provider, and, upon appointment will undertake ‘DSL New to Role’ training followed by biannual updates.

The DSLs who are involved in recruitment will also complete Safer Recruitment Training to be renewed every 5 years

All members of staff and volunteers are provided with child protection awareness information at induction, including in their arrival pack, the school safeguarding statement so that they know who to discuss a concern with.

All members of staff are trained in and receive regular updates in e-safety and reporting concerns.

All other staff have child protection awareness training, updated by the DSL as appropriate, to maintain their understanding of the signs and indicators of abuse.

All members of staff, volunteers, know how to respond to a pupil who discloses abuse.

All parents/carers are made aware of the responsibilities of staff members with regard to child protection procedures through publication of the school’s Child Protection Policy.

Our lettings policy will seek to ensure the suitability of adults working with children on school sites at any time.

Community users organising activities for children are aware of the school’s child protection guidelines and procedures.

Our procedures will be regularly reviewed and up-dated.

The name of the designated members of staff for Child Protection, the Designated Safeguarding Lead, will be clearly advertised in the school, with a statement explaining the school’s role in referring and monitoring cases of suspected abuse. The DSL’s for each school will be listed in the front of the policy.

All new members of staff will be given a copy of the GLF Safeguarding Statement, and child protection policy, with the DSLs’ names clearly displayed for the appropriate school, as part of their induction into the school.

The policy is available publicly both on the GLF website and on each school website. Parents/carers are made aware of this policy and their entitlement to have a copy of it via the school website.


How to contact Children's Services

The Multi-Agency Safeguarding Hub (MASH) responds to initial enquiries about children, young people and adults. The MASH is based in Horsham and combines Children's Service social workers, Adult’s Service social workers, and health and police staff.

Prevent Duty

Published by the government in July 2015, the Prevent Duty outlines the expectations placed on schools and other childcare providers to protect children and young people from radicalisation and extremism.

They adjudge extremism to constitute views, attitudes or behaviours which run contrary to core British values such as democracy, the rule of law and individual liberty.

At Southgate Primary, we feel we prepare and protect the children from these dangers by our focus on community. Our values form an important part of this, but so do many of our topics and projects within class and in wider school life.
 

E-Safety

Whilst it is important that the correct technical systems are in place to guarantee that the children are safe whilst using the internet. It is equally important to ensure that the children are taught how to use the internet safely. They must understand how to keep themselves safe. We work with CEOPs to ensure that our children are given the necessary tools to keep themselves safe whilst using the internet.
