Safeguarding

Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is everyone’s responsibility.

 

In order to effectively fulfil this responsibility we aim to work in partnerships with our families and other professionals to make our approach child-centred and should consider what’s in the best interests of the child.

As part of our curriculum we have regular PSHE and E-Safety lessons where children are educated about how to keep themselves safe and who to talk to if they need help.

We are proud to work collaboratively with the NSPCC, the UK’s leading children’s charity in delivering key messages via a variety of programmes. The school have successfully participated in the NSPCC’s ‘Speak Out, Stay Safe’ programme. This was a huge success whereby all children across the school positively engaged in the activities and opportunities to interact. In fact one Y6 pupil expressed…

“That’s one of the best assemblies we had in a long time”.

We are committed to ensuring our staff receive regular safeguarding training, our staff will identify concerns early, provide help for children, with a view to preventing concerns from escalating. At Wombridge Primary School we will provide a safe environment in which children can learn and are committed to identifying children and families who may benefit from early help.

We have an experienced team at Wombridge of Designated Safeguarding Leads (DSL). Should you ever have a safeguarding concern about a child, family or online incident, please come and speak to one the team immediately. The DSL  role is to advise on safeguarding concerns, support others to carry out their safeguarding duties and liaise with other agencies.
