At Upton St James, the health, safety and wellbeing of all children is of paramount importance. Parents and carers send their children to school each day with the expectation that school provides a secure environment in which their children can flourish. We therefore have to ensure that this expectation becomes reality. In order to do this a wide range of measures are put in place.
A very important aspect of the school’s role is to ensure we keep all our children safe. This takes many forms from the obvious and straight forward such as ensuring the building and equipment we use is fit for purpose to putting risk assessments in place. It also covers aspects such as e-safety – making sure your children know how to keep themselves safe online and it also includes safeguarding – keeping children safe from harm.
Regular training for all staff ensures that everyone is fully aware of our policies and procedures with regards to all aspects of safeguarding.
