Safeguarding… Everybody… Everyday
Newdale Primary School is committed to the safety and the well-being of its pupils and staff.
The school recognises the importance of providing an ethos and environment that will help children to feel safe, secure and respected; encourage them to talk openly; and enable them to feel confident that they will be listened to.
In order to help promote this ethos within school, we have a number of resources which provide clear information and support to all pupils and stakeholders.
We also have our safeguarding champions who other children and staff can identify by their bright red jumpers. They meet regularly, attend Governor meetings to discuss any safeguarding issues and participate in assemblies.
Across our school site, safeguarding displays are an integral fixture. Our displays which are aimed at pupils and parents/guardians are located in our main school corridor. Our staff safeguarding displays are present in the staffroom. All of the displays are regularly updated to reflect changes in policy/procedure. They are regularly referred to and have an element of interaction to ensure they don’t become ‘wallpaper’ but instead are useful sources of information.
