Keeping Children Safe

 

Ensuring the safety and well-being of the children at Claycots School is vital to our core services and the highest of priorities; therefore, we have policies and procedures that surround the issue of safeguarding our young children and an outstanding team of professionals to help deal with any concerns 

We aim to ensure that the safety and well-being of both students and staff are at the utmost of importance and we will take the appropriate steps in order to ensure that they are not at risk, either from themselves or from others.

If you have any concerns about safety and wellbeing of someone you know, please talk to a member of the safeguarding team.

The following steps may be taken by the school to support anyone who may have any safeguarding concerns:

  • Meet with the young person and/or family to explore the concern.

  • Speak to other agencies and professionals for further advice.

  • Make a referral and to work with Early Help/Social Services and/or the police.

If we have to work with other professionals’ and share information about any concerns, we will ensure that they 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.
