Being Happy Staying Safe

In our academy family, we want all children to be happy and safe. In our academy, we respect all children and adults and help to keep them safe, strong and free. We do our best to help all children make good progress in their learning. We teach the children how to keep themselves safe in different situations and how to protect themselves.

SAFEGUARDING

Our priority is to keep all the children in our school safe.  We encourage children to talk to the staff and confide in them if they have any worries.  We listen carefully to children and generate a caring and considerate atmosphere where children can feel able to discuss their problems freely with others.

Designated Safeguarding Lead: Mr Trewinnard
Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead: Mrs Huish

Our staff are well trained and Safeguarding procedures in school are professionally and confidentially carried out when required. Information is passed on purely on a ‘need to know basis.’

We also value the importance of equipping children with lifelong skills. Learning about how to be safe is an important part of our learning across the school.

FAMILY GROUP

Through our Family Groups we visit aspects of Safeguarding.

NSPCC

We work with the NSPCC through their assembly workshops and their online resources to help children feel empowered to keep themselves safe and who they can talk to. We use the fun materials and resources linked to the Underwear Rule.

DEVON CAP UK

Each year the children work with Devon Child Assault Prevention Team (CAP). They enjoy workshops and assemblies to give them age sensitive information in a fun and informative manner.
