Look under policies for our Child Protection Policy.
As outlined in Section 11 of the Children’s Act 2004; there is a great emphasis and it places a responsibility on Ocker Hill Infant to safeguard and promote the welfare of our children. This responsibility complements the statutory requirements placed on the school under Section 157/175 of the Education Act 2002.
In order to meet these expectations the school will ensure that it will :
- · Have a Senior Management Team who are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of our children at school and in the community
- · Have a team of staff, volunteers and governors who understand how to protect and safeguard our children and know how and when they must report concerns about their welfare. This is a continual rigorous process to our school.
- · Have a clear statement of its responsibility to safeguard our children as defined in safeguarding policies and any training undertaken with staff, volunteers and governors.
- · Have clear lines of accountability for staff, volunteers and governors in the school as defined in our child protection policy and other safeguarding policies
- · Ensures that our children are free to express their wishes and feelings throughout their experience and within a rich environment that Ocker Hill Infant and Nursery is a 'listening' school and all staff are committed to the ethos of 'A love of learning gives you wings'.
- · Ensure that staff, volunteers and governors access training in relation to the welfare and protection of our children within the expectations of local and national guidance
- · Have robust recruitment procedures which promote the welfare of our children as laid out in the schools recruitment policy and are in line with national guidance
- · Work in close partnership with parents/carers and other services concerned with the safeguarding of our children to meet both local and national expectations.
