Wykeham Primary School

Committed to Excellence, Equality and Enjoyment

  1. Our School
  2. Safeguarding


At Wykeham Primary School, we are committed to promoting a culture of safeguarding.

We continually teach and remind our children to ensure they know how to keep themselves safe and to speak out when they feel worried or do not feel safe.

Our children are aware of the trusted adults in their Safety Network. These are five adults at home and at school that children can go to and speak to.

We also work with agencies such as Childline, NSPCC and Place2Be to safeguard children.


NSPCC Speak Out & Stay Safe

We use ‘Speak Out and Stay Safe’ to encourage children to speak out if they have a problem or are being hurt.  Click the NSPCC image to find out more:



With the help of the NSPCC, we teach the children that privates are privates and that nobody should ask to see or touch any areas covered by underwear. Sometimes a family member, nurse or doctor may have to but this should be explained why. We teach the children that No means no and if they are concerned about the underwear rule or feel unsafe they should speak out.

Operation Encompass

Wykeham Primary School participates in the Operation Encompass project. This is an early information sharing partnership between the Police and Education that enables schools to support children experiencing domestic abuse.

Following an incident of domestic abuse, where a child attending this school has experienced it or been exposed to it, and the Police have attended the child’s home, Operation Encompass will contact the Designated Safeguarding Leads so they can support the child.
