Keeping Our Children Safe

At Newton Tony Primary School we recognise that our primary responsibility is to safeguard and promote the welfare of the children, and that everyone who comes into contact with children has a role to play in that. As part of our safeguarding policy and in line with our PREVENT Duty, we promote tolerance and respect for all cultures, faiths and lifestyles, and expect our visitors to share this commitment. Safeguarding is an important part of our everyday life. Our staff  maintain an attitude of ‘it could and does happen here’ where safeguarding is concerned, they maintain professional curiosity and zero-tolerance to child on child abuse and sexual violence and harassment between children. Please be vigilant and share any concerns if you think a child is at risk of harm either at school, within a family setting or in the wider community.

Sharing Worries

We actively encourage children to share their worries and concerns.  We have a worry box and worry monster for children to write down their worries if they feel they cannot initially talk about them. We use the JIGSAW PSHE programme which promotes the importance of valuing discussion.  We are proud to have our Silver Anti-bullying award and include our school council when reviewing our school leaflet.  We take part in the Anti-bullying alliance and Online Safety programmes. We also promote the NSPCC events and the importance of Childline.

We consider Safeguarding everyone’s responsibility. To support this we use ‘CPOMS’ to share information within our staffing team and when transferring information to other schools.  We work in partnership with Wiltshire Safeguarding Vulnerable People Partnership  https://www.wiltshiresvpp.org.uk/ and the Wiltshire LA Safeguarding Effectiveness Team. If you would like a copy of our School Safeguarding Action Plan please contact Miss Priestley.
