Safeguarding

Safeguarding at South Farnborough Junior School 

 

We recognise our moral and statutory responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of all children. We make every effort to provide a safe and welcoming environment underpinned by a culture of openness where both children and adults feel secure, able to talk and believe that they are being listened to.

 

Safeguarding determines the actions that we take to keep children safe and protect them from harm in all aspects of their school life. As a school, we are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all of our pupils. 

 

Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is everyone's responsibility; all members of staff have a duty to safeguard our pupils' welfare and are trained to do so. All staff and volunteers at South Farnborough Junior School undergo checks by the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) and are fully familiar with our Safeguarding Policy and Child Protection Policy.

 

In all matters relating to safeguarding and child protection, the School will follow the procedures laid down by Hampshire Safeguarding Children Board together with DfE guidance contained in:

Working Together to Safeguard Children 2018 and

Keeping Children Safe in Education (KCSIE 2021).

 

If anyone has a concern about the safety or welfare of a pupil, they have a duty to report this concern.

At South Farnborough Junior School, concerns should be reported to one of the Safeguarding Leads who are:

E-Safety

E-Safety is a key aspect of our duty to keep children safe - both inside and outside of school. For parents and carers there is a wealth of online information which can be accessed in order to help to keep children safe online. 


Below are some useful links which can provide useful and impartial information

Peer on Peer Abuse

In England, the Department for Education (DfE) has published guidance on sexual violence and sexual harassment between children in schools and colleges.

The guidance states that schools and colleges should develop policies and procedures on responding to child-on-child sexual violence and harassment and that schools have a whole-school approach to safeguarding and child protection.

 

Within the DfE guidance it states that schools have a duty to teach children about sex and relationships and that this should include discussions about peer-on-peer sexual abuse, consent, healthy relationships and sexuality. At Junior school level, this is covered through our RSE curriculum; we cover these topics by ensuring we teach our children about what is acceptable, positive behaviour. We also do this at South Farnborough through our school values and by ensuring that we teach our children to speak up should they ever have concerns about behaviour they witness.

 

A copy of our parent information leaflet can be found below for your information. This can seem a lot for junior schools, but we do have to be open to the ‘it could happen here’ mentality, as then we can be aware, have policies in place and not be shut off to it. Rest assured the leaflet contains information for all schools, up to colleges, and we have included it to make you aware of the over arching situation for all school aged children.

 

If you have any queries or concerns, please feel free to contact the school.
