Grange Primary School fully recognises its responsibilities for child protection and safeguarding.
Our policy, which is reviewed and approved by the governing body annually, applies to all staff, governors and volunteers working in the school. There are six main elements to our policy:
A. Establishing a safe environment in which children can learn and develop.
B. Equipping children with the skills needed to keep them safe.
C. Raising awareness of child protection issues with staff and ensuring we practice safer recruitment by checking the suitability of prospective staff and volunteers to work with children.
D. Training and supporting our staff to equip them to appropriately recognise, respond to and support children who are vulnerable and may be in need of safeguarding.
E. Implement and review regularly, in the light of experience, our procedures for identifying and reporting cases, or suspected cases, of abuse.
F. Supporting pupils who have been abused in accordance with his/her agreed child protection plan.
We will follow the procedures set out by the Derbyshire Safeguarding Children Board in the Derby and Derbyshire Safeguarding Procedures (www.derbyshirescb.org.uk) and take account of guidance issued by the Department for Education (Keeping Children Safe in Education September 2018)
