'Whatever you do, do it well'
Safeguarding of children and the promotion of fundamental British values are a core business of our work within the Federation. Great importance is place on identifying opportunities in the taught curriculum for children to learn about safeguarding. Our curriculum gives children opportunities;
to experience life in all it diversity;
to acquire knowledge, understanding and skills that significantly impact on personal development, behaviour and welfare
and equips every child with the knowledge and skills required for personal safeguarding.
In terms of online abuse, children and young people may experience cyberbullying, grooming, sexual abuse, sexual exploitation, emotional abuse, radicalisation and other ideologies that reinforce unhealthy messages.There are risks from inappropriate content.
Children and young people could be at risk online from people they actually know as well as strangers (who the child believes, over time, that they know).
We plan constantly to challenge children to think deeply about safeguarding matters and their own personal physical and mental wellbeing. We look at the following themes;
Managing emotional needs,
what makes a family,
stereotyping, bullying, water safety,
dangers of extremism,
We have developed an open and safe environment in which pupils express their views, seek help and help others. The exceptionally well planned promotion of equal opportunity and diversity of pupils and staff, help prevent any form of direct or indirect discriminatory behaviour. Our children learn to not tolerate any prejudiced behaviour. Our behaviour policy promotes making good choices and the consequence of making choices.
We have due regard for the information produced by the DFE and weave this into our online safety curriculum, SRE Curriculum and PSHE curriculum; Our Teaching and Learning Ambassadors support all pupils and staff about staying safe online.
Our Ambassadors have worked with the pupils in the school and have created a poem to help children remember how to stay safe online as well as 10 Top Tips!
Stay Safe Online
When you are online there are dangers,
Lurking in the shadows of the web are strangers.
No, No, No, please don’t show,
Your identity to those you don’t know.
Hey, Hey, Hey watch that word,
No foul language to be heard!
Strong passwords are the key
To keep strangers away who may want to see.
Chat, Chat, Chat, not always needed,
To stay safe online let this be heeded.
Fun online isn’t a crime,
But, be aware eyes open all of the time!
