Safeguarding Children within the Curriculum

 

Handling dangers outside school

 

  • Children are taught about the potential dangers associated with the use of ICT and the internet. They are taught that they should switch off the monitor immediately, if they see anything they don’t like.

  • Children are taught in an age-appropriate way about the importance of Bonfire night safety and the ways in which they can enjoy themselves safely.

  • The Fire Crew come to school every year to speak to Year 2 and Year 6 about fire safety.

  • Year 3 learn about water safety in their swimming lessons

 

Travelling to and from school

 

  • Cycle training is provided in Year 6 in order to encourage a safe and healthy way to travel to and from school.

  • Community Support Officers come into school to discuss the importance of car seats and seatbelts.

 

Supporting children’s emotional needs

 

  • The Worry Box is used to support children with any problems they may identify. Children post worries in the box and these will be addressed by the Pupil Support Mentor. Children understand that in most cases the discussion remains private, but where the adult is concerned for their safety, the discussion will be reported to the Headteacher.

  • Our Pupil Support Mentor is ELSA trained and delivers bespoke programmes to children with emotional needs.

  • All staff are ACE aware
