Safeguarding

HAYDON ABBEY SAFEGUARDING STATEMENT

At Haydon Abbey School we want our children to be happy, safe and secure and we do our best to provide a positive and caring environment in which they can thrive.

 

To achieve this we –

 

  • Prevent unsuitable people working with our children through rigorous recruitment
  • Ensure all staff are well trained
  • Have in place the right policies and procedures, taking advice from bodies such as the LA and DFE
  • Promote safe practice and challenge poor / unsafe practice
  • Work in partnership with parents and families
  • Listen to our children and take seriously what they tell us
  • Identify when there are grounds for concern about a child’s welfare and initiate or take appropriate action to keep them safe: both at home and within the school
  • Have high expectations of behaviour and conduct
  • Give our children the opportunities to learn about keeping themselves safe

 

All our staff are responsible for the well being of all children but some staff have specific roles such as the staff in the Pastoral Team based in the Seaton Suite. The school has a supportive, nurturing ethos and we encourage children to talk if something is worrying them and equally hope parents feel able to talk to us too.

Based in the Seaton Suite are:

Hannah Jones   –   Deputy Safeguarding Lead and SENCO
