Safeguarding is about ensuring that everyone is safe from harm – safe from bullying, safe from people who could abuse, safe from discrimination or harassment – and that we all feel safe in our environment.
We listen to our pupils and take seriously what they tell us. All school staff are trained in Child Protection, and children are made aware of the adults they can talk to if they have any concerns. Staff are trained to look out for signs of physical/emotional harm or neglect and are required to report these to the Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL).
Are you Ace aware?
Childhood experiences, both positive and negative, have a tremendous impact on immediate and lifelong health and opportunity. Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) are traumatic events that affect children while growing and could include neglect, physical abuse, domestic abuse, adult mental health and substance misuse.
Exposure to ACE’s could lead to risky health behaviours (smoking, alcoholism, drug use), chronic heath conditions (eg: obesity, diabetes, depression, heart disease and cancer), low life potential (poor academic achievements and employability) and early death. A public health video has been released to help all adults understand the impact of ACEs.
