Our Safeguarding Policy meets the requirements of the latest relevant legislation:
- Working Together to Safeguard Children: A Guide to Inter-Agency Working to Safeguard and Promote the Welfare of Children, March 2015.
- Keeping Children Safe in Education: Statutory Guidance for Schools and Colleges, March 2015.
It should be read in conjunction with school’s Prevent Strategy which is available below.
At Frogmore Infant School ensuring the safety of children is paramount.
We do this by:
- providing a safe environment for children to learn
- listening to what children tell us
- identifying children who are suffering or likely to suffer significant harm, and taking appropriate action with the aim of making sure that they are kept safe both at home and in the education setting.
To achieve this objective, we:
- identify instances where there are grounds for concern about a child’s welfare and initiate or take appropriate action to keep them safe.
- contribute to effective partnership working between all those involved in providing services for our children.
- aim to prevent unsuitable people from working with children.
- promote safe practice and challenge any poor or unsafe practice.
The Designated Lead for Safeguarding at Frogmore Infant School is Mrs King.
Prevent is 1 of the 4 elements of CONTEST, the government's counter-terrorism strategy. It aims to stop people becoming terrorists or supporting terrorism.
The Prevent strategy:
- responds to the ideological challenge we face from terrorism and aspects of extremism, and the threat we face from those who promote these views
- provides practical help to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism and ensure they are given appropriate advice and support
- works with a wide range of sectors (including education, criminal justice, faith, charities, online and health) where there are risks of radicalisation that we need to deal with.
