Safeguarding

 

This page is all about safeguarding our children - keeping them safe in every way within our school community, and helping them to learn about how they can keep themselves safe. 

​Safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility and all staff working in school receive regular training and are familiar with the statutory guidance of Keeping Children Safe  (September 2018).  Training includes a range of safeguarding issues, including the Prevent strategy to protect children from radicalisation and extremism, child sexual exploitation and Female Genital Multilation.

 

 At Christ Church the health, safety and well-being of all of our children is our highest priority.

 The school’s designated safeguarding lead people are Mrs Midgley, Miss Ellis and Miss Coward.

There is a detailed Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy, which is available on our Policies page.

 .................................................................................................................................................................................................................

Physical restraint: Christ Church follows advice that physical restraint may be used by using the Team Teach approach, if there is the possibility that a child may be about to cause harm to him/ herself or to another, Team Teach will be used, this is only carried out by trained members of staff. Parents will always be informed if your child has had to be restrained in school for any reason.
