3 Introduction CHILD PROTECTION POLICY St John s school fully recognises the contribution it can make to protect children and support pupils in school. The aim of the policy is 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 are committed to ensuring our pupils achieve the statutory outcomes identified in this document as:- Being Healthy Staying Safe Enjoying and Achieving Making a positive contribution Achieving economic well being This policy sets out how the school s Governing Body discharges its statutory responsibilities relating to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children who are pupil s at the school. This policy is consistent with :- The legal duty to safeguard and promote the welfare of children, as described in section 175 of the Education Act 2002, Working together to Safeguard Children, March 2015 and the DfE guidelines on Safer Recruitment as outlined in Keeping Children Safe in Education, Statutory Guidance for Schools & Colleges July The Local Safeguarding Children Board (LSCB) Procedures, which contain procedures and guidance on safeguarding children There are 4 main elements to our Child Protection (CP) Policy 1 Prevention eg positive school atmosphere, teaching and pastoral support to pupils, preventing unsuitable people working with children. 2 Protection- by following agreed procedures, ensuring staff are trained and supported to respond appropriately and sensitively to CP concerns. 3 Support to pupils and school staff and to children who may have been abused. 4 Working with parents to ensure appropriate communication and actions are undertaken, support structures are put in place and links with external agencies are established. This policy applies to ALL staff (all adults working with children paid or unpaid), governors and visitors to the school. We recognise that CP is the responsibility of all staff within our school. We will ensure that all parents and other working partners are aware of our CP policy by referring to it in our school prospectus, displaying appropriate information in our reception and by raising awareness at initial meetings with parents of new pupils as well as regular parent teacher meetings. Document Name: Child Protection Policy Page 3 of 14

4 Extended school and before and after school activities Where the Governing Body provides services or activities directly under the supervision or management of school staff, the school s arrangements for CP will apply. Where services or activities are provided separately by another body, the Governing Body should seek assurance in writing that the body concerned has appropriate policies in place to safeguard and protect children and there are arrangements to liaise with the school on these matters where appropriate. PREVENTION The school is open and caring towards all individuals as part of its pastoral care. Staff work hard to ensure children and parents will feel free to talk about any concerns and see school as a place where they can receive help and support. Worries and fears that children may have are taken seriously and children are encouraged to seek help from members of staff. Our school will therefore:- Establish and maintain a caring Christian ethos where children feel accepted and cared for and where they feel secure in addition to promoting fundamental British Values through SMSC All children are encouraged to talk about their concerns and know that they will always be listened to. They know that there are adults in school whom they can approach if they are worried or are in difficulty. Include in the curriculum activities and times of collective reflection and worship, opportunities for issues relating to PSHE and C which equip children with the skills they need to stay safe from abuse and which will help children develop realistic attitudes to the responsibilities of adult life, particularly with regard to child care and parenting skills. Ensure every effort is made to establish effective working relationships with parents and colleagues from other agencies. Operate safer recruitment procedures and make sure that all appropriate checks are carried out on new staff and volunteers who will work with children, including DBS Checks (Disclosure and Barring) and list 99 checks. Ensure those responsible for recruitment eg Head teacher, nominated Governor, have successfully completed the required National College of School Leadership Safer Recruitment training and that other senior members of staff, if involved in leading on recruitment, have also successfully completed the training. Ensure that all staff and volunteers are aware of the need to maintain appropriate and professional boundaries in their relationships with pupils and parents and follow the School s Staff codes of conduct Guidance for Safe Working Practice for the Protection of Children and Staff in Education Settings, September 2006 reference has been removed as the information is out of date and is in the process of being updated) PROTECTION Document Name: Child Protection Policy Page 4 of 14

5 All adults working with or on behalf of children have a responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of children. This includes a responsibility to be alert to possible abuse and to record and report concerns to staff identified with CP responsibilities within the school. SUPPORT The school aims to provide support to pupils and school staff who may have been abused. WORKING WITH PARENTS We aim to ensure appropriate communication and actions are undertaken, support structures are put in place and links with external agencies are established. Staff will follow in all instances of suspected child abuse the Leicester City Education CP Procedures, which are fully compliant with Local Safeguarding Children Board Procedures. Roles and Responsibilities of the Governing Body The Governing Body will ensure that:- The school has a CP policy and procedures in place, and the policy is made available to parents on request. There is a senior member of the SLT who is designated to take lead responsibility for dealing with CP (MR A MARSHALL) There is an appointed deputy/deputies for CP, in the event of the unavailability of the designated senior person (MR J PIBWORTH/ MRS E ORTON) The designated senior person and the appointed deputy/deputies for CP undertakes training for designated senior persons, in addition to inter-agency CP training, that is provided by, or to standards agreed by, the Local Safeguarding Children Board (LSCB) and has refresher training at two yearly intervals. The Head Teacher, and all other staff and volunteers who work with children, undertake appropriate training which is kept up to date by Whole School refresher training at two yearly intervals and that new staff, temporary staff and volunteers who work with children are made aware of the school s arrangements for CP and their responsibilities. The current document is, Keeping Children Safe in Education, Staturoy Guidance for School & College Staff (Part 1) July 2015 There are procedures for dealing with allegations of abuse against members of staff and volunteers. The Headteacher or DSL will in the first instance contact the Local Authority designated Officer (LADO) to gain advice The chair of Governors (or in the absence of a chair, the vice-chair) deals with any allegations of abuse made against the Headteacher, in liaison with the LADO. The Governing Body nor individual governors will have a role in dealing with individual cases or a right to details of cases except when exercising their disciplinary functions in respect of allegations against a member of staff. Any deficiencies or weaknesses brought to the attention of the Governing Body are rectified. Document Name: Child Protection Policy Page 5 of 14

6 Policies and procedures are reviewed annually and information is provided to the Local Authority on how the Governing Body discharges its duties regarding safeguarding and CP. There is an individual member of the Governing Body who will champion issues to do with safeguarding children and CP within the school, liaise with the designated senior person, and provide information and reports to the Governing Body, and that person is appropriately trained to discharge their responsibilities effectively. That the Chair of the governing body completes the annual Safeguarding in Education Check List supporting schools to exercise their duties in relation to Child Protection & Safeguarding, and returns the document to the local authority Allegations against Staff/Volunteers There are procedures for dealing with allegations of abuse against members of staff and volunteers. The chair of Governors, (or in the absence of a chair, the vice-chair) deals with any allegations of abuse made against the Head teacher, in liaison with the LADO If there is a concern that a staff member has harmed a child, or is at risk of harm to a children, a referral by the Headteacher/Chair of Governors will be made to the LADO Service by contacting the Allegations Duty Manager on All policies and procedures are in line with the LSCB, Section 39, Allegations Against Persons Working with Children; Violent extremism (Taken from Working Together to Safeguard Children: A guide to inter-agency working to safeguard and promote the welfare of children ) Exposure to, or involvement with, groups or individuals who condone violence as a means to a political end is a particular risk for some children. Children and young people can be drawn into violence themselves or they can be exposed to messages if a family member is involved in an extremist group. Experience suggests that young people from their teenage years onwards can be particularly vulnerable to getting involved with radical groups through direct contact with members or, increasingly, through the internet. This can put a young person at risk of being drawn in to criminal activity and has the potential to cause significant harm. The cross-government strategy to stop people becoming terrorists or supporting violent extremism is known as Prevent. One of Prevent s primary objectives is to support individuals who are vulnerable to recruitment or have already been recruited by violent extremists. There are a number of local projects across the country that contribute to this aim. All local authority areas should have an agreed process in place for safeguarding vulnerable children and young people susceptible to violent extremism. All staff should understand the nature of the risk and how to respond. Levels of risk vary across different areas so LSCBs, safeguarding adults boards and children s services practitioners should ensure they are informed of the particular risks in their area. Most local Document Name: Child Protection Policy Page 6 of 14

7 authority areas have a Prevent partnership group that is responsible for co-ordinating work on this agenda across all agencies. Children s services departments should be involved in this partnership group to ensure services that support children and young people are contributing to Prevent. Working Together to Safeguard Children All children and young people s partnerships should have an agreed process in place for safeguarding vulnerable individuals, including children s transition and vulnerable adult services. In some areas, there is a bespoke multi-agency process known as Channel, which is an agreed mechanism for referring those at risk and providing support. Channel guidance states that if a referred individual is under the age of 18 the Channel co-ordinator must liaise with Early Help Services or Children s Social Care (who should be represented on the Prevent partnership and multi-agency Channel panel) to agree how best to handle the case. Following initial discussion a decision needs to be made on how to progress the case (for example, as a safeguarding issue, under Channel, Early Help, or another support process) and establish how this will be reviewed. This decision can be taken on a case by case basis or a decision can be made by all local partners to use one particular system for the referral of all under 18s. If an area does not have Channel, local areas should incorporate referrals of under 18s within safeguarding procedures. Protecting children from the risk of radicalisation should is seen as part of schools wider safeguarding duties and is similar in nature to protecting children from other forms of harm and abuse. The school will ensure; We raise awareness of the Prevent Agenda Staff have a clear understanding of what Prevent is and where/when to raise concerns Prevent is within the schools Safeguarding Policy DSP is made aware of making referrals to Channel Programme (if required) Monitoring absences Roles and responsibilities of the Headteacher The Headteacher of the school will ensure that:- The policies and procedures adopted by the Governing Body are fully implemented and followed by all staff. Sufficient resources and time are allocated to enable the designated senior person and other staff to discharge their responsibilities, including taking part in inter agency meetings and contributing to the assessment of children. All staff and volunteers feel able to raise concerns about poor or unsafe practice in regard to children, and such concerns are addressed effectively and sensitively in a timely manner. All staff are made aware that they have an individual responsibility for referring CP concerns promptly and using the proper channels. All staff are made aware of their right to whistle blow and understand whistleblowing procedures Document Name: Child Protection Policy Page 7 of 14

8 Roles and Responsibilities of the Designated Senior Person for CP & Safeguarding The responsibilities of the designated senior person for CP: Provision of information to the LA on how the Governing Body discharges its duties regarding safeguarding and CP Liaison with the Governing Body and the LA on any deficiencies brought to the attention of the Governing Body and how these should be rectified Deal with all safeguarding concerns raised/allegations of abuse within the school Referral of cases of suspected abuse or allegations to Social Care and Safeguarding Act as a source of support, advice and expertise within the educational setting. Ensure each member of staff has access to and understands the school s CP policy especially new or part-time staff who may work with different educational establishments. Ensure all staff have CP induction and update training and are able to recognise and report any concerns immediately they arise. Work with the Governing Body to review an update annually the school s CP policy Is responsible for maintaining and monitoring the child protection records. Liaison with other agencies: contributing to CP work with families The school will: Work to develop effective links with relevant agencies and cooperate with enquiries regarding CP matters Attend and contribute to CP conferences and core groups and provide reports as required Contribute to assessments and the implementation of CP plans Be proactive in communicating with Social Care and Safeguarding any significant changes/developments including exclusion or any other absence that raises concern. Record Keeping The school will keep detailed written CP records including when there are concerns about children that do not reach the threshold for referral to Social Care and Safeguarding. All CP records will be kept securely and confidentially and will be separate from the pupil file. The designated senior person is responsible for maintaining and monitoring the CP records. Transfer of Records The designated senior person will ensure that when children move school the CP records are transferred in accordance with the LA Guidance. Document Name: Child Protection Policy Page 8 of 14

9 Confidentiality and Information Sharing The school will: Ensure confidentiality protocols are adhered to and information shared on a need to know basis Support to pupils and school staff Support to pupils The school recognises that children who are abused, neglected, bullied or who witness violence may find it difficult to develop a sense of self worth and view the world in a positive way. For such children school may be one of the few stable, secure and predictable components of their lives. Other children may be vulnerable because for instance, they have a disability, are in care, or living away from home. The school will; Seek to provide such children with the necessary support. The school recognises that some children display abusive behaviour and that these children must be referred on for appropriate support and intervention. Complaints or concerns raised by pupils will be taken seriously and followed up in accordance with the school s complaints process Support for staff As part of their duty to safeguard and promote the welfare of children and young people staff may hear information that may be upsetting. Where a member of staff is distressed as a result of this, he/she should in the first instance speak to the designated senior person about the support he/she requires. The designated senior person will seek to arrange the necessary support. Working with parents/carers The school will: Ensure that parents/carers have an understanding of the responsibility placed on the school and staff for CP by setting out its obligations in the school brochure. Undertake appropriate discussion with parents/carers prior to involvement of another agency unless the circumstances preclude this. Work to develop productive, supportive relationships with parents/carers whenever it is in the child s interest to do so. Document Name: Child Protection Policy Page 9 of 14

10 Other relevant policies The Governing Body s legal responsibility for safeguarding the welfare of children goes beyond CP. The duty is to ensure that safeguarding permeates all activity and functions. The policy therefore complements and supports a range of other policies, for instance: Behaviour Management, including drug use Racist incidents Anti bullying Physical interventions/restraint SEN Trips and visits Work experience and work related learning placements First aid and the administration of medicines Health and Safety Sex and Relationship Education Site Security Equal Opportunities Toileting/intimate care ICT and E-safety Extended school activities The above list is not exclusive and when undertaking development or planning of any kind the school will need to consider the implications for safeguarding children and promoting their welfare. Additional Information At St John the Baptist C of E Primary School, the Head teacher and Governors expect Safeguarding to be everybody s responsibility. All staff adhere to and follow these policies and in addition to the Other Relevant Policies listed above, St John the Baptist C of E Primary School is mindful that the following key area, as outlined in Working Together to Safeguard Children July 2015, is also of upmost importance; Document Name: Child Protection Policy Page 10 of 14

11 Female Genital Mutilation Female Genital Mutilation is a form of child abuse and as such is dealt with under the school s Child Protection & Safeguarding Policy. Definition of Female Genital Mutilation (FGM): FGM comprises of all procedures involving partial or total removal of the external female genitalia or other injury to the female genital organs whether for cultural or non-therapeutic reasons. Responding to FGM The school will ensure; We raise awareness of staff in regard to the issues of FGM Staff have a clear understanding of what FGM is FGM is within the schools Safeguarding Policy Sex and Health curriculum supports pupils understanding of their bodies and keeping themselves safe Monitoring absences From October 2015, it will be a mandatory responsibility of all staff members to report any suspicion of FGM to the police if the child is under 18 years of age. If staff are aware of such concerns, staff will, in the first instance report their concerns to the DSP and or Head Teacher. A referral and advice from Social Care will be gained and a referral to the police will made. Child Sexual Exploitation (CSE) CSE involves young people receiving something in exchange for sexual acts. Sexual exploitation can take many forms ranging from seemingly consensual relationships to serious gang and group exploitation. As a school staff we should be aware that sexual exploitation can take many forms and that pupils may not exhibit external signs of abuse. Therefore, our staff must be vigilant for the less obvious signs, such as lots of new electronic equipment, when before there was none, seeming to have extra money to spend, moving away from established friendship groups etc. Our staff are also aware of some of the signs and symptoms of CSE through staff induction and as part of Whole School Safeguarding Training which is carried out every 2 years in addition to training which the DSP has attended. Document Name: Child Protection Policy Page 11 of 14

12 Children Missing From Education A Child Missing From Education forms part of the wider LSCB procedures (Chapter 2) for children who go missing from School, Home, Care Education and includes Families who go missing. A pupil missing from education for ten sessions or more is a potential indicator of abuse and neglect. Should a pupil go missing from school (education) the Attendance Officer will inform the Designated Senior Person (DSP) and contact the Educational Welfare Service. The DSP will consider further actions and/or support should it be required and to ensure they help identify the any risk of abuse and neglect, including sexual exploitation and to help prevent the risks of them going missing in future. Domestic Violence & Abuse The government defines Domestic Abuse as any incident of threatening behaviour, violence or abuse (physical, psychological, sexual, financial or emotional) between adults who have been intimate partners or family members regardless of gender or sexuality. If the school is made aware of incidents of domestic violence which is impacting on a child within the school, (suspicions and allegations of abuse, harm and significant risk to a child), the school will follow LA and LSCB guidelines (Section 2.12) in reporting such concerns to Duty and Advice and will seek guidance where necessary. In such cases, the school will also work closely with the child and the Headteacher/DSP will endeavour to support the child who has been exposed to domestic violence, and their parents/carers, where appropriate. Furthermore, involvement through the Early Help Offer can also support the child and parents/carers and the school will ensure communications and multiagency working with Social Care and Early Help is maintained to fully support the child and their family.
