Safeguarding and Child Protection  

Safeguarding  and  Child  Protection  

Lingua4Kids  

The  welfare  of  our  pupils  is  the  school’s  paramount  concern.  We   believe  that  our  school  should  provide  a  caring,  positive  safe  and   stimulating  environment  that  promotes  the  social,  physical  and   moral  development  of  the  individual  child.  We  recognise  that  all   adults  have  a  full  and  active  part  to  play  in  protecting  our  pupils   from  harm.

School  owners  will  ensure  that:

-­‐ DBS  checks  are  in  place  for  teachers  and  teaching  assistants

-­‐ the  school  operates  safe  recruitment  procedures

-­‐ the  school  has  procedures  for  dealing  with  allegations  of  abuse   against  staff  and  volunteers

-­‐ teachers  undergo  regular  trainings  on  Safeguarding  and  Child   Protection  regulations

-­‐ our  school  will  support  all  pupils  by  encouraging  self-­‐esteem   and  self-­‐assertiveness,  through  the  curriculum  as  well  as  our   relationships

-­‐ our  school  will  support  staff  by  providing  opportunities  to  talk   through  their  concern  and  seek  to  take  further  support  as   appropriate

-­‐ we  notify  Social  Care  as  soon  as  there  is  a  significant  concern

-­‐ we  recognize  that  all  matters  relating  to  child  protection  are   confidential

-­‐ we  recognize  that  the  school  plays  an  important  part  in  the   prevention  of  harm  to  our  pupils  by  providing  pupils  with  good   communication  with  trusted  adults  and  supportive  friends

-­‐ we  carry  out  annual  risk  assessment  of  the  teaching  venue  to   ensure  the  health  and  safety  of  our  pupils

Our  Safeguarding  and  Child  Protection  policy  will  be  monitored  and   evaluated  annually  before  the  start  of  a  new  academic  year.
