Self-Evaluation and Review

Wigton Moor Primary School takes its commitment to safeguarding and child protection very seriously. We conduct regular self-evaluation and audits of our policies, practice and procedures. Governors hold school leaders to account for ensuring that planned actions are completed within the timeframes indicated.

 

Staff Training

Safeguarding is the responsibility of all staff at Wigton Moor Primary School and all staff undergo regular training in Safeguarding, including (but not limited to): Child Protection, Safer Recruitment, First Aid, Prevent (the name given to the training which aims to prevent young children becoming radicalised) and Identifying Children at Risk of FGM and other safeguarding risks.

 

Preventing Radicalisation

Prevent Strategy Information for Parents explains our responsibilities in protecting children from extremist and violent views. It also supports us in promoting and teaching important values such as tolerance, respect and the celebration of diversity.

 

Prevent Duty Information is also included in the Safeguarding Policy.

 

 

Bullying

We work hard to ensure that any instances of bullying are dealt with quickly and followed up over time. We care about all the children at our school and work closely with children and families to give every child the best experience.
