Safeguarding

Keeping the school community safe

You can speak to any member of staff about anything that is worrying you. Every child has the right to be safe from harm and danger. Every adult at Arnbrook has a responsibility to ensure pupils are safe at home and school. We will always listen to you and do everything we can to help. There are four staff in school with the specific job of keeping children and families safe:

Arnbrook Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of young people and expects all staff, visitors and members of the school community to share this commitment and adhere to our principles and policies. At Arnbrook we recognise our moral and statutory responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of all pupils. We endeavor to provide a safe and welcoming environment where children are respected and valued. We are alert to the signs of abuse and neglect and follow our procedures to ensure that children receive effective support, protection and justice.


Our policy and practice takes into account the Keeping Children Safe in Education guidance (September 2019).

Our Safeguarding Principles

Safeguarding for all
As stated in KCSiE (2019) safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all children, regardless of age, gender, ability, culture, race, language, religion or sexual identity, is of paramount importance.

Everyone’s responsibility
Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is everyone’s responsibility. Everyone who comes into contact with children and their families has a role to play.

Child First
In order to fulfill our responsibility effectively, all members of the school community make sure their approach is child-centred. This means that they should consider, at all times, what is in the best interests of the child.

It could happen here
Staff working with children are advised to maintain an attitude of ‘it could happen here’ where safeguarding is concerned.

In addition to this, throughout the curriculum children are taught how to stay safe, including online. Click here for our page all about staying safe online or here to find out more about safeguarding within the school's curriculum.
