We follow the statutory guidance laid out in the DFE document ‘Keeping children Safe in Education 2021’ which can be found here.

We actively support the Government’s Prevent agenda to counter radicalisation and extremism.

The Safeguarding Governors are  Mrs Emma Skyner Andrews and Miss Carol Chapman, if you have concerns about the Headteacher.

All our staff are fully trained in Safeguarding and Child Protection procedures (Autumn 2021) including the PREVENT duty. Volunteers are also trained as part of their induction process and are required to pass an online Safeguarding test in order to volunteer in our school.

This duty to report concerns regarding extremist views and radical ideologies being expressed by children is fully embedded in our safeguarding procedures.
