“Safeguarding is not just about protecting children from deliberate harm. It includes a
wide range of issues relating to pupil’s welfare, health and safety.”

(Briefing for Section5 Inspectors on Safeguarding Children, Ofsted April 2015)

The Craylands School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this committment.

We have a number of policies and procedures in place that contribute to our safeguarding commitment.

Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a child’s welfare. We will ensure that our concerns about our pupils are discussed with his/her parents/carers first unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child’s welfare.

We actively support the Government’s Prevent Agenda to counter radicalism and extremism.

We are aware that child protection and safeguarding are fundamental to the welfare of
all children in our care. This statement, therefore, should be read in conjunction with the school’s wider safeguarding policies . All policies will be reviewed on an annual basis by the Governing Body which has responsibility for oversight of school safeguarding and child protection systems.

The Designated Safeguarding Lead / Head Teacher will ensure regular reporting onsafeguarding activity and systems in school to the Governing Body. The Governing Body will not receive details of individual pupil situations or identifying features of families as part of their oversight responsibility.
