Comberton Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
Our safeguarding policy and procedures have been developed in accordance with the principles established by the Children Acts 1989 and 2004; the Education Act 2002; and in line with government publications the Teachers' Standards 2012, 'Working Together to Safeguard Children' and 'Keeping Children Safe in Education'.
There are five main elements to our policy:
Ensuring we practice safer recruitment in checking the suitability of staff and volunteers to work with children;
Raising awareness of child protection issues and equipping children with the skills needed to keep them safe;
Developing and then implementing procedures for identifying and reporting cases, or suspected cases, of abuse;
Supporting pupils who have been identified as in need of early help or at risk of harm in accordance with his/her agreed Child Protection, Child in Need or Early Help plan;
Establishing a safe environment in which children can learn and develop.
