Safeguarding

 ‘All adults in school have a responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of children.’

 

Safeguarding children is a priority for Lowedges Junior Academy. We have clear aims, policies and procedures in place in order to keep all of our children safe.

Our Child Protection Policy complies with the South Yorkshire Local Safeguarding Children Boards Child Protection Procedures, and can be found on our academy website or by clicking this link….

 

The procedures place a statutory duty on Lowedges Junior Academy and adults in school to safeguard and promote the welfare of children with due consideration to equality.

Our systems are designed to:

  • Prevent unsuitable people working with children and young people
  • Promote safe practice and challenge poor and unsafe practice
  • Identify instances in which there are grounds for concern about a child’s welfare and give adults in school the route for them to take the appropriate action.

 

The recruitment of staff to the academy is carried out with due regard to the statutory documentation from the DFE ‘Keeping children safe in education' (2020).

 

There are different posters displayed around school to help advise anyone who has a safeguarding concern. These include posters with information on how to contact the Safeguarding Team, posters displaying the 9 Key Characteristics and posters about which documents are important to guide us. Leaflets about important agendas including prevent can be found in key locations.
