Although educating our pupils is at the heart of what we do - enabling each to discover their strengths and helping them to build their resilience and confidence through the learning process, all this is compromised and much more challenging if pupils and their families are going through difficulties. It is recognised that when children have stability, consistency and a good level of care, they are more likely to thrive through this learning journey. Seeking help is a sign of strength and a form of proactive care, not a sign of weakness. Schools can direct families to a variety of support so please don’t suffer in silence.
Radbrook Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children. We make every effort to ensure that consistent, effective safeguarding procedures are in place to support children, families and staff at school.
All members of staff have completed the relevant Child Protection Training and follow a comprehensive policy so that we can provide staff, volunteers and governors with the framework they need in order to keep children safe and secure in our school and to inform parents and guardians how we will safeguard their children whilst they are in our care.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding the safeguarding and well-being of any of the pupils at our school, these should be brought to the Designated Safeguarding Lead, Miss Linnell or the Deputy Safeguarding leads, Mrs Appleton or Mrs Walsh.
You can also report your concerns online to the Initial Contact Team on 0345 678 9021.
SAFEGUARDING POLICY LINK
As part of our school’s ongoing safeguarding and child protection duties we fully support the government's Prevent Strategy.
From 1 July 2015, all schools have been subject to a duty under section 26 of the Counter-Terrorism and Security Act 2015, in the exercise of their functions, to have “due regard to the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism”. This duty is known as the Prevent Duty for Schools.
If you are concerned about extremism in school or if you think a child might be at risk of extremism, you can contact the counter terrorism helpline on 020 7340 7264.
