At Wykeham Primary School, we are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and we expect everyone who work in our school to share this commitment. All staff are encouraged to have an attitude of ‘it could happen here’.
We believe that our core school values of respect, responsibility, tolerance and co-operation and the British values are not mutually exclusive. We focus on ensuring our work is effective in securing these values; challenging children, staff and parents who express opinions contrary to the British values with regard to our duty to prevent extremism and radicalisation.
Our safeguarding procedures include:
- ensuring children within our school are kept safe from harm and abuse;
- ensuring all adults, in this school, have been properly vetted and cleared as suitable to work and support children in our care;
- ensuring all stakeholders feel they are able to put the welfare of the children first without concern that there will be any negative consequences attached to their actions; and
- ensuring that all adults who have contact with children in school have been trained to undertake their safeguarding responsibilities effectively.
We have a number of policies and procedures that contribute to our safeguarding commitment and some of these can be viewed at the bottom of this page or on the policies page.
For any queries relating to safeguarding during the school day, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
