Safeguarding Audit

Pupil Voice

Stephen Fisher, our LDBS advisor, recently held safeguarding conversations with children in the school. Three formal conversations took place with groups of Key Stage 2 children. The groups comprised: boys, girls, children with SEND, children with medical conditions, children deemed vulnerable and EAL learners. 

"I was enormously impressed by their maturity and by their knowledge of a range of safeguarding matters. They said without hesitation that the staff keep them safe and they described some of the measures that the school has put in place to keep them safe. For example, they know: 

- what bullying is and know what to do if they feel that they are being bullied or if they see someone being bullied

 - how to keep safe online

 - how to maintain a feeling of wellbeing – such as having friends, playing games, playing musical instruments, playing music, exercising and reading 

- what to do when the school emergency alarm sounds 

- that if they approach a member of staff for help that they will be listened to and that their concerns will be acted upon. In particular, they appreciated the help provided by the HSLW."
