Safeguarding at Clutton Primary School

 

At Clutton Primary School, the safeguarding of our children is the highest priority. Please use the links below to view our school policies and guidance for parents/guardians in relation to keeping children safe in school and at home.

Pupils have a good understanding about being and feeling safe and understand that they are able to talk to adults in school at any time when worried about any issues met.

It is our duty to ensure that all children in our care are and feel safe.

 

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

Prevent Duty

Clutton Primary School is fully committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all its pupils. As a school we recognise that safeguarding against radicalisation is no different from safeguarding against any other vulnerability.

All staff are expected to uphold and promote the fundamental principles of British values, including democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect, and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.

On 1 July 2015 the Prevent duty (section 26) of The Counter-Terrorism and Security Act 2015 came into force. This duty places the responsibility on local authorities to have due regard to the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism.

As part of Clutton School’s commitment to safeguarding and child protection we fully support the government’s Prevent Strategy.

At Clutton Primary School, we build pupils’ resilience to radicalisation by promoting fundamental British values and enabling our pupils to challenge extremist views. You can read about what we do to promote British Values here.

The internet is amazing. Children can play, learn, create and connect - opening up a whole world of exciting possibilities. But with the digital world changing all the time, how can you make sure your child’s staying safe?

If you have any concerns about online safety, please talk to your class teacher, 

or make an appointment to see the Head Teacher. Contact

NSPCC net aware

 

The NSPCC online safety website has a ton of helpful advice on managing on line safety in your family.

T - Talk about staying safe online

E - Explore their online world together

A - Agree rules, what's ok and what's not

M - Manage your family's settings and controls 

 

 

Thanks to you, we’re one step closer to keeping children safer online. 


On 1 July 2019, we handed in our Wild West Web petition to Downing Street.

Almost 46,000 of you took action by signing our petition - calling for statutory regulation so that social networks have a legal duty of care to protect every child.

Earlier this year, the government published their White Paper, setting out how they plan to keep children safe online. This is set to be a significant step towards a safer internet.

 

 

 

NSPCC workshops

Buddy

In Term 2 2018, the NSPCC visited our school to talk to the us about being and feeling safe, everywhere we go.

The children took part in assemblies covering the NSPCC Speak out Stay Safe programme.  KS2 also took part in follow up workshops, exploring what is meant by Speak Out, Stay Safe. Please do have a look at the NSPCC  website and click on the links for more information.

All children met Buddy, a friendly, green speech bubble who believes that children should be able to speak out to someone if they're worried or unhappy.

In EYFS and KS1 the assembly explains:

  • that all children have the right to speak out and be heard, to be safe and to get help when they need it.
  • the different ways that children can be hurt in a simple, age appropriate way, so that children understand when something's not right.
  • how to think about grown-ups who may be good to talk to, both in school and out of school.
  • Children learn about Childline, and how they can get in contact if they're worried or need to talk.

In KS2 the children attended an assembly and took part in follow up workshops looking at:

  • some of the reasons why a child may feel sad, worried or anxious and need someone to talk to.
  • The NSPCC representative explains the different types of abuse in a simple, age appropriate way, so that children understand when something's not right.
  • Children think about trusted adults who they could talk to if they're worried, both in school and out of school.
  • Children learn about Childline, and how they can get in contact if they're worried or need to talk.

 

We also raised a wopping £296.98 for the NSPCC. Well done all!
