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 In Education (September 2019) Training includes a range of safeguarding issues, including the Prevent strategy to protect children from radicalisation and extremism, child sexual exploitation and Female Genital Mutilation.

 

 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 and Miss Coward.

We have 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.

Important information during the COVID-19 Lockdown

#EmergingMinds

This blog presents a recent series of webinars on how we can best support the mental health of children and young people during COVID-19. These free online events (eight in total) bring together experts in the field to answer questions that parents and carers may have. Topics include: managing worries, anxiety, screen time, self-harm, sleep and more.

Right now, vulnerable children and adults may be particularly isolated, meaning that the family, community and professional networks they usually rely on may be unavailable or hard to access. At the same time, living under the current arrangements may increase the pressures that can contribute to abuse and neglect, or allow it to go unseen. Neighbours, volunteers and professionals – like pharmacists, shop and supermarket workers – can play a vital role in keeping adults and children safe. Please see this guide for more information.
