Safeguarding

Abbots Hall Primary Academy takes seriously its responsibility to protect and safeguard the welfare of children and young people in its care.

We recognise that for our pupils, high self-esteem, confidence, supportive friends and clear lines of communication with a trusted adult helps to prevent abuse.

 

Our school therefore aims to:

 

  • Establish and maintain an environment where pupils feel safe and secure, are encouraged to talk and are listened to.
  • Ensure that pupils know that there are adults within the school who they can approach if they are worried or are in difficulty.
  • Include in the curriculum activities and opportunities for PSHE which equip pupils with the skills they need to stay safe from abuse and to develop healthy and safe relationships.
  • Include in the curriculum materials that will help pupils develop realistic attitudes to the responsibilities of adult life, particularly with regard to childcare and parenting skills.
  • Make parents/carers aware of the school policies and practice for safeguarding and ensure that, wherever possible, every effort will be made to establish open and honest effective working relationships with parents and colleagues from partner agencies.
