We Safeguard Children In Our School By...

  • Having designated safeguarding staff; Mrs Wilmer (Primary Executive Headteacher), Mrs Robson (Head of School), Mrs Huggett (Inclusion Manager), Mrs Gordon (Business Manager) and Mr Brockman (Safeguarding Governor) and making sure they are well trained. 
  • Having clear steps to follow if anyone is worried or concerned.  We ask the Medway Safeguarding Children Partnership for advice if we need it. 
  • Ensuring our curriculum helps children understand how to keep themselves safe and know what to do if they need help.
  • Encouraging all our children, parents/carers and staff to be themselves, no matter what their race, religion, family background or state of health.
  • Making sure we know why children are off school, and helping them to be in school if we can. 
  • Attending meetings about individual children or families to plan any support they may need, working with other professionals where necessary.
  • Making sure that personal information is kept confidential. 
  • Being open and honest with children and parents/carers when something is wrong and working together with them to make things better. 
  • Working with the Police as part of Operation Encompass, which ensures we receive timely information about incidents that have happened at home which may impact on children.
