Safeguarding and Policies
Safeguarding and Child Protection
At Whitchurch CE Primary School the health, safety and wellbeing of every child is our top priority. We have a child-centered and coordinated approach to safeguarding. We expect all staff, governors and volunteers to share this commitment to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of our pupils. Safeguarding is everyone's responsibility.
Our child protection policy outlines our guidance.
The following information is designed to provide our whole community with information about the PREVENT duty. placed upon schools.
The PREVENT approach at Whitchurch CE Primary School is very much part of our curriculum, culture and processes. We see it as an integral aspect of promoting the safeguarding and wellbeing of our children.

Early Years Foundation Stage
At Whitchurch behaviour is exemplary. Children play and work well with each other and enjoy school life. Mutual respect is evident between staff and children and the whole school has a lovely family atmosphere. At our school we have 3 simple rules that we follow based on the UN Rights of the Child:
We have the right to learn
We have the right to have friends
We have the right to be happy and safe
These are supported by our Behaviour and Anti bullying policies, both available on request from the school office or by clicking the links below. There have been no exclusions in the last 5 years and no racist or homophobic incidents.
Where children don’t get along we have simple systems in place. There is a 'Trust Box' in the library for children to use. Children talk to staff about any problems they are having and we talk to parents where children have fallen out or bullying has occurred. If we see any problems or find out about any, we intervene. We use our rules and Learning Council agreed sanctions in talking to children about making good choices, putting bad choices right and then moving on.
