Safeguarding

St Luke's CE Primary School and RISE fully recognise the contribution we can make to protect children and support pupils in school.  Our policies and practice reflect our commitment to safeguard and promote our pupils’ welfare, safety and health by fostering an honest, open, caring and supportive climate.  The pupils’ welfare is of paramount importance.

 

We recognise the following four elements as pivotal to our responsibilities:

 

  • Prevention (e.g. positive school atmosphere, teaching and pastoral support for pupils, safer recruitment procedures);
  • Protection (by following agreed procedures, ensuring staff are trained and supported to respond appropriately and sensitively to Child Protection concerns);
  • Support (to pupils and school staff and to children who may have been harmed or abused);
  • Working with parents (to ensure appropriate communications and actions are undertaken).

 

St Luke's is an Operation Encompass school. Operation Encompass aims to ensure that schools have timely information about all police-attended incidents of domestic abuse, no matter where in the world the child lives.
