Fleetville Junior School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. We have a number of policies and procedures in place that contribute to our safeguarding commitment.
In order to effectively safeguard our pupils in all contexts, we are committed to the continued professional development of our staff team. All staff receive statutory training and updates linked to Keeping Children Safe in Education, First Aid (including Paediatric) and Health and Safety. We have a dedicated member of staff who, with the correct paperwork and parental permissions, is able to administer medication on site.
Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a child's welfare. We will ensure that our concerns about our pupils are discussed with his/her parents/carers first unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child's welfare.
We actively support the Government's Prevent Agenda to counter radicalism and extremism.
Our Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSLs) at Fleetville Junior School is Ms Clare Whitehouse. The Deputy Safeguarding Leads are Mr Josh David and Mrs Di McDonald.
At Fleetville Juniors, we spend a lot of time sharing the importance of being safe online with the children as the access and use of digital devices becomes ever increasing in our current world. We start each Autumn term focusing our computing lessons on 'E-safety'. We recap they ways that the children can remain safe whilst online and provide them with scenarios that allow for great and crucial discussions.
Assemblies are used to reinforces messages and external agencies are used to target key year groups. Year 6 received tailored sessions that look at using social media safely and how to identify and respond to relevant risks.
