Safeguarding, Prevent and GDPR

Everyone at Eyam CE Primary School fully recognises the contribution school can make to protect and support children in school. The aim of the implementation of the policy is to safeguard and promote welfare, safety and health by fostering an honest, open, caring and supportive environment. We encourage children to talk about their worries and to report their concerns to us. The children's welfare is of paramount importance. We recognise that some children may be especially vulnerable to abuse and that children who are abused or neglected may find it difficult to develop a sense of self worth, to view the world in a positive way or achieve academically. We will always take a considered and sensitive approach in order that we can support all of our children and their families.

All adults working with or on behalf of children have a responsibility to safeguard and promote their welfare. This includes a responsibility to be alert to possible abuse and to record and report concerns to staff identified with child protection responsibilities within the school. 

Any volunteers or new members of staff have to have an induction with the Headteacher and Health and Safety officer to discuss safeguarding within school and their responsibilities. All staff and volunteers are kept up to date with any recent changes or any new documents.
