At Woodlands Primary School, we aim to provide a safe, supportive and inclusive environment, which secures the well-being and very best outcomes for the children in our care. We have a duty of care to safeguard and promote the well-being of children. We take this responsibility seriously and as such, we have clear systems and procedures in place to ensure that no child should suffer from harm, at home or at school. All staff have a statutory responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of children.
If you are worried about the safety or welfare of any young person at home or at school, please ensure that you report your concerns to either Mrs. Papa or Miss Jackson (our school Designated Safeguarding Leads).
The Designated Member of Staff for Child Protection may refer the matter to Social Care, the Police or other agencies, as all adults who come into contact with children at Woodlands Primary School have a duty of care to safeguard and promote their welfare.
To ensure our children are safe and supported when working online, it is important that children have very clear reporting routes in place so they can raise any concerns whilst online.
As well as reporting routes back to Woodlands Primary School, we would also like to signpost you to the following links below:
- Childline - for support on how to stay safe when working online
- UK Safer Internet Centre - to report and remove harmful online content
- CEOP - for advice on making a report about online abuse
