Safeguarding is an area of key importance to Belmont Park School and one that is regularly reviewed to ensure that we continue to meet all areas of need. To support this, we have developed a Safeguarding Suite of Policies and all staff have received safeguarding training. We also have named senior members of staff who hold specific areas of safeguarding responsibility and a Safeguarding Governor.
As part of our ongoing holistic approach to safeguarding pupils against any threat to their health, safety and wellbeing, we support the teaching of Traditional British Values at Belmont Park School. We also work closely with partner agencies to promote the safety of our community.
Working with the Local Authority, we have made sure that we have clear procedures in place to address any concerns that we may have about potential radicalisation or extremist views.
Our Anti-Radicalisation & Extremism statement sets out our beliefs, strategies and procedures we have adopted to protect pupils from being radicalised or exposed to extremism. Our Teaching Traditional British Values statement outlines how we aim to effectively address this area within school.
We have also provided parents/carers with specific information about the Prevent Strategy within the Parents & Carers section of this website so that they are also empowered.
We review our Safeguarding Suite of Policies annually to ensure compliance with current guidance. Most recently they were reviewed using guidance from the Keeping Children Safe in Education (September 2016) document (attached). Our safeguarding policies are listed below for your information.
The above guidance has also been cascaded out to all staff and governors and we have attached a copy below for your information.
