Safeguarding

At New Siblands School we are committed to creating and maintaining a safe and secure environment for pupils, students, staff, governors, volunteers and visitors and to promoting a climate where children, young people and adults will feel confident about sharing any concerns which they may have about their own safety or the well-being of others. We aim to create a culture of vigilance to safeguard our children.

 

Our policy draws on all relevant legislation and guidance including:

  • The Children Act (1989 and 2004); 

  • Keeping Children Safe in Education: Statutory guidance for schools and colleges (Sept 2020)

  • The Prevent Duty (2015) 

  • The The four guiding principles of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC); and Working Together to Safeguard Children (2018) updated Dec 2020.
