Birchwood Grove CP School

 

Safeguarding

The governors and staff of Birchwood Grove CP School are fully committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare and well-being of all our pupils. 

We recognise that all adults, including temporary staff, volunteers and governors, have a full and active part to play in protecting our pupils from harm, and that the child's welfare is of paramount concern.

To provide a safe, secure and caring environment in which all children flourish, we implement a wide range of measures and policies including our Safeguarding & Child Protection and Health & Safety policies.  All staff appointed to the school are subject to a DBS and qualifications check.  The headteacher, deputy headteacher and inclusion manager are trained Designated Safeguarding Leads.

We believe part of our curriculum should be embedding online safety and promoting good digital citizenship throughout. We of course need to work with our community to do this effectively, here you will find weblinks and resources to support your children to stay safe online. National online safety provide a wealth of resources and advice, and as a school we use them to help us teach children about online safety.
