At Niton Primary School we are fully committed to Safeguarding.

Please find our Safeguarding Statement detailed below.

At Niton Primary School we are committed to inspiring, challenging and safeguarding our pupils and enabling them to become:

•   Successful learners who enjoy learning, make progress and achieve;
•   Confident individuals who are able to live safe, healthy and fulfilling lives.

We are fully committed to ensuring that consistent effective safeguarding procedures are in place to support families, children and staff at school. All concerns are passed through the members of staff who are trained as ‘Designated Child Protection Officers’ in school in compliance with the ‘sharing of information’ guidance.

The following safeguarding measures are in place.

Cause for Concern

All staff are asked to report any causes for concern to the Designated Persons for Child Protection using a written proforma.
Any concerns will be shared with parents/carers as early as possible as more often than not there are extremely reasonable explanations for the concern.
Concerns may range from children being visibly upset to persistent lateness to children ‘disclosing’ concerns.

Our designated safeguarding lead is:

Duncan Mills – Executive Headteacher

Deputy safeguarding lead is:

Louise Glover – Head of School  

Governing Board Safeguarding Representative – Debbie Andre   

 

Attendance

All lateness and absences are recorded by the class teachers and the Admissions Officer. Reasons will be sought for all absence or lateness. Attendance is monitored through these systems and referrals to the Designated Child Protection Officers can be made. Parents and carers will always be informed of concerns around attendance at the earliest point. If attendance concerns continue, the school may refer to the Education Welfare Service.

Absence During Term Time

We would encourage parents and carers not to take their children out of school during term time. Every day of your child’s education counts.  If holidays during term time are necessary, then a request must be put in writing to the Headteacher. Holidays will only be authorised in extenuating circumstances. In some cases, parents and carers will be asked to discuss the reasons for extended school holidays.

Keeping Children Safe in Education 2019

 

NSPCC Campaign

Talk PANTS and you’ve got it covered

The Underwear Rule is a simple way to help keep children safe from abuse and has been developed by the NSCPP. It teaches children that their body belongs to them, they have a right to say no, and that they should tell an adult if they’re upset or worried.

Each line of PANTS covers a different part of the Underwear Rule and provides a simple but valuable lesson that can keep a child safe.

How and when you talk PANTS to your child is your choice. You’ll know when they’re ready and how much detail you need to go into. If you wish to speak to your child’s class teacher about this subject, then please do. 

More information about the Underwear Rule, including a short film and a parent guide can be found at nspcc.org.uk/underwearrule.

PANTS is a really easy way for you to explain the Underwear Rule to your child:

Privates are private

Always remember your body belongs to you

No means no

Talk about secrets that upset you

Speak up, someone can help

Thank you for helping to keep your child safe.
