Safeguarding

At Whitchurch CofE Primary School the health, safety and wellbeing of every child is our top priority. We expect all staff, governors and volunteers to share this commitment to safeguarding our pupils. Our child protection policy outlines our guidance.

Many of you may know that the Government has put into place something called the ‘Prevent’ strategy. It is designed to prevent people becoming terrorists or supporting terrorist organisations. Schools, including primary schools, are required to include this as part of their safeguarding procedures and so I am including a link to a pamphlet for parents for you to see. In practice, for us, this means challenging prejudice and racist comments, promoting British values and exploring other cultures and religions to promote diversity. It is not about discussing extremism with children, it’s about teaching children values such as tolerance and respect, which as you know we do. I hope this all makes sense, does not alarm anyone and lets you know what our response to this strategy is. Please click here for a copy of the pamphlet.
