Child Protection Policy
Beaconsfield Primary School are committed to a strong culture of safeguarding, ensuring that all staff embrace the concept of “it could happen here.” We are fully committed to creating a culture of vigilance and we expect everyone who works in and visits our school to share this commitment.
We encourage staff, pupils and visitors to report anything that concerns them and we will always act in the best interest of the child. Our pupils are taught how to stay safe, including when online, and to recognise when they may be at risk. We ensure our pupils know how to get help when they need it.
In line with Working Together to Safeguard Children (2018), we place importance on contextual safeguarding and consider risks in our local community when assessing the safety of our pupils.
We provide parents and carers with regular updates about how the school is supporting Safeguarding and Child Protection as well as offering support and guidance to keep children safe at home. Please click here to read more.
As a school, we are committed to providing appropriate support to children who may have experienced or witnessed domestic violence. We therefore work in partnership with the Metropolitan Police Service through a project called 'Operation Encompass' which allows the school to make adjustments or provide additional support to children who may be going through a difficult time.
