Safeguarding and Prevent at Waveney Valley Partnership Schools

WVPS recognises that children in their care have the fundamental right to be protected from harm. We will do whatever is reasonable to promote our pupils’ safety and wellbeing. We are committed to create an ethos which contributes to the care, safety and wellbeing of children, staff and visitors of our schools.

The principles that underpin our ethos include ensuring that our children feel secure and are encouraged to talk, and are listened to, if they have any concerns. All staff, governors and regular visitors will be trained to know how to recognise a disclosure from a child and know how to manage it in accordance with Keeping Children Safe in Education (2015).The child will be made aware that we cannot make promises or keep secrets.

We will work in partnership and endeavour to establish effective working relationships with parents, carers and other relevant agencies. However, although we aim to balance the protection of the child with the rights and needs of the parents, the child’s safety must always come first.

Dr Margaret Sillis

Senior, Safeguarding and Prevent Governor
