Our school is committed to safeguarding all learners. School staff are trained to a high standard and reflect the school’s philosophy of “Safeguarding first”.
We work closely with Devon and Cornwall Safeguarding Children’s Boards, following all statutory advice. Our school adheres to “Keeping Children Safe in Education” and Guidance for Safer Working Practice for Adults who work with Children and Young People in Education Settings. Information about local safeguarding arrangements can be found using the links below:
Every member of staff at our school holds a current Safeguarding Child Protection Training Certificate, which is renewed every three years. Staff are trained in recognising signs of abuse and know the procedure to follow if they have concerns about a child.
We operate a continuous cycle of additional training in areas including, PREVENT, British Values, Child Sexual Exploitation and Online Safety.
We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expect all staff to share this commitment. All adults working in school are required to complete a DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) Enhanced Check.
CEOP helps any child or young person under the age of 18 who is being pressured, forced or tricked into taking part in sexual activity of any kind. This can be something that has taken place either online or in ‘the real world’, or both. The CEOP Safety Centre has clear information and advice on what can be reported to CEOP, the reporting process and what will happen if you do decide to make a report.
