Safeguarding

Safeguarding and Welfare of our Pupils

Safeguarding our children is embedded in our curriculum and everyday culture. 

The staff and governors at Grove Primary School and Nursery believe that it is always unacceptable for a child to experience abuse of any kind. We recognise our responsibility to safeguard the welfare of all children.
Our aim is to work together to safeguard children by:

  • protecting children from maltreatment;
  • preventing impairment of children’s health or development;
  • ensuring that children are growing up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care;
  • taking action to enable all children to have the best outcomes;
  • teaching children how they can keep themselves safe;
  • taking action to ensure that children attend school every day.

On-line Bullying

Cyberbullying and online harassment can be extremely distressing. They can be even classed as criminal offences in some cases. There are lots of places that offer information and help to children and parents.

Here are some of the key websites that you can share with your child at home:

Kidscape: www.kidscape.org.uk

CBBC website: www.bbc.co.uk/cbbc

ChildLine: www.childline.org.uk

BeatBullying: www.beatbullying.org

 

What is cyber bullying and online harassment?

Making comments or posts that are deliberately abusive, offensive, threatening or inflammatory. Liking and sharing this kind of abuse can also count as bullying and harassment.

There's a very detailed definition of cyberbullying at:

How you can stay safer

  • Think before you post;
  • Keep personal information personal;
  • Make the most of your privacy settings;
  • Report cyberbullying to internet service providers.

Buzz Assembly

With a large building site next to and behind the school, Mrs Bilke arranged for Spellar and Metcalfe to come into school and talk to the children about the dangers of building sites.

H&S Manager Tony and Buzz Sitegear lead a very amusing but serious assembly to help keep us all safe.

Road Safety Week

On Tuesday 20th November, two police officers came into school to talk to the children about Road Safety. They learnt about where to sit in the car in order to keep themselves safe. They enjoyed the 'Car Seat' limbo which helped the children understand whether they needed to still use a car seat when travelling. Children that needed a car seat received a red sticker and children that didn't need a car seat received a green sticker. So we now all know how to stay safe - Thank you Kerry-Ann and Andrea.
