Safeguarding - It takes a village to raise a child

Safeguarding is the responsibility of everyone in our school community and staff are especially aware of the vulnerability of our pupils who may have barriers to communication.

There is ongoing training throughout the year to ensure that all staff understand school policy and procedures, are up to date with changes to legislation and are aware of issues relevant to our local community. 

Training is also offered to families to help them understand how the safeguarding and child protection systems work and why they are there.

Safeguarding includes ensuring an ongoing safe and secure environment and putting appropriate checks in place for recruitment. We have staff members trained in 'safer recruitment’ processes.

We work closely with the ‘Children with Disabilities Team’ to help support families to keep children safe along with our transdisciplinary team. We also work with Brent Educational Welfare Service regarding unexplained pupil absence from school.

Every opportunity within the school day we take opportunities to develop independence and communication skills. Children are encouraged to look after their belongings and learn how to keep themselves safe.
