Safeguarding at Clutton Primary School

childlineRobust mechanisms are in place throughout school relating to Safeguarding. Child Protection procedures are followed carefully, in line with Keeping Children Safe in Education, June 2016 and the Trust’s Child Protection Policy & Procedures.

Pupils have a good understanding about being and feeling safe and understand that they are able to talk to adults in school at any time when worried about any issues met.

It is our duty to ensure that all children in our care are and feel safe.

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

For further information about Safeguarding please refer to our Safeguarding Policy. Find out more about our school’s Prevent Duty below.

Prevent Duty

Clutton Primary School is fully committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all its pupils. As a school we recognise that safeguarding against radicalisation is no different from safeguarding against any other vulnerability.

All staff are expected to uphold and promote the fundamental principles of British values, including democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect, and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.

On 1 July 2015 the Prevent duty (section 26) of The Counter-Terrorism and Security Act 2015 came into force. This duty places the responsibility on local authorities to have due regard to the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism.

As part of Clutton School’s commitment to safeguarding and child protection we fully support the government’s Prevent Strategy.

At Clutton Primary School, we build pupils’ resilience to radicalisation by promoting fundamental British values and enabling our pupils to challenge extremist views. You can read about what we do to promote British Values here.

Clutton Primary School is a safe place for children, where our responsibilities for safeguarding children are taken seriously.
