Safe Guarding

Wykebeck Primary School recognises that safeguarding encompasses the duties of child protection and promoting the rights and welfare of children. As such, it is:

 
  • Everyone’s responsibility to safeguard children and provide a safe environment in which children can learn.
  • All school and college staff should be prepared to identify children who may benefit from Early Help.
  • All professionals should make sure their approach is child-centred. This means that they should consider, at all times, what is in the best interests of the child. (KCSiE 2016)

 

And we believe:

 

  • Schools can contribute to the prevention of abuse.

  • All children have the right to be protected from harm.

  • Children need support that matches their individual needs, including those who may have experienced abuse.
