Chilton Trinity School

Safeguarding

Our Child Protection and Safeguarding Policy applies to all staff, governors and volunteers working at Chilton Trinity School. The policy will contribute to the safeguarding of students within the school by:

  • Clarifying safeguarding expectations for members of the school community, staff, School Governance Committee, learners, and their families.
  • Contributing to the establishment of a safe, resilient, and robust safeguarding culture in the school built on shared values; that learners are treated with respect and dignity, taught to treat each other and staff with respect, feel safe, have a voice and are listened to.
  • Supporting contextual safeguarding practice recognising that the school site can be a location where harm can occur.
  • Setting expectations for developing knowledge and skills within the school community (staff, learners, parents/carers) to the signs and indicators of safeguarding issues and how to respond to them.
  • Early identification of need for vulnerable learners and provision of proportionate interventions to promote their welfare and safety.
  • Working in partnership with learners, parents, and other agencies in the Local Safeguarding Partnership.

 

Our school will support all students by;

  • Encouraging self-esteem, self-assertiveness and healthy relationships through the curriculum whilst not condoning aggression or bullying.
  • Promoting a caring, safe and positive environment within the school.
  • Liaising and working together with all other support services, and those agencies involved in the safeguarding of children.
  • Notifying Social Care as soon as there is a significant concern.
  • Providing continuing support to a child about whom there have been concerns who leaves the school, by ensuring that appropriate information is copied under confidential cover to the child's new setting and ensuring the school medical records are forwarded as a matter of priority.
