Carleton Endowed CE (VA) Primary School is committed to ensuring the welfare and safety of all children in school. We endeavour to provide a safe and secure environment for children, staff and visitors and promote a climate where children feel confident sharing concerns about their own safety or the well-being of others. Safeguarding Intent

  • To support all pupils who may have been or are at risk of abuse
  • To establish and maintain an ethos where pupils feel safe and secure
  • All staff and governors are trained and fully committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all pupils
  • Child Protection concerns are dealt with sensitively following policies and procedures in place

Safeguarding Implementation

Safeguarding in our school involves all staff, governors, parents and pupils. Staff and governors are committed to undergoing annual safeguarding training and are aware of the correct policies and procedures to follow when concerns arise. Pupils are taught safeguarding context through PSHE lessons and also though assemblies and workshops delivered by outside agencies. Here, pupils learn the skills to equip them to stay safe and know how to respond to personal concerns. We aim to maintain positive relationships with parents and carers wherever possible and we will, in most circumstances, endeavour to discuss all concerns with parents about their children.

Safeguarding Impact

We endeavour to ensure that we support all pupils who may be or are at risk of abuse of any form. Together with the Headteacher, the Designated Safeguarding Lead monitors safeguarding concerns across the school. Staff and governors help to maintain a safe ethos within school and are aware of the correct procedures to follow in case of concerns arising. We intend the impact of Safeguarding within our school will ensure that our pupils have the skills to help them to face their problems by sharing these with a chosen member of staff or appropriate service.
