Safeguarding Policy Statement

If any conduct in relation to the safeguarding of children or young people gives cause for concern, the Council’s agreed Child Protection procedures will be followed, alongside implementation of the school’s Disciplinary Procedure.

As part of our whole school Safeguarding Summer focus in collaboration with Brent and Ealing council, we are currently supporting the NSPCC in sharing their Talk PANTS campaign in school. This has been developed to help prevent abuse from happening to any child. Talk PANTS encourages parents to have simple conversations with their children to help keep them safe, teaching children five key messages:
• Privates are private.
• Always remember your body belongs to you.
• No means no.
• Talk about secrets that upset you.
• Speak up, someone can help.
