SAFEGUARDING AT EXHALL JUNIOR SCHOOL
Exhall Junior School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff, pupils and volunteers to share this commitment. It is their right to be safe in school and our duty to ensure this.
At Exhall Junior School, safeguarding is managed in a number of ways. This includes ensuring good behaviour, safety on the school site, anti-bullying, E-safety, pupil voice and child protection policies.
Exhall Junior School is committed to providing a secure environment for pupils, where children feel safe and are kept safe. All adults in our school recognise that safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility irrespective of the role they undertake or whether their role has direct contact or responsibility for children or not.
As part of our safeguarding work,
We work in partnership with colleagues from other agencies and when we can, our intention is always to consult and work with parents/carers to achieve the best outcome for the child.
Sometimes circumstances exist which do not allow for the consultation and the school must take independent action in order to ensure a child is safeguarded.
OUR SAFEGUARDING TEAM IS:
Mr Mann (Headteacher) - Designated Safeguarding Lead
Mrs Nethercot (Assistant Headteacher) – Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead
Miss Gardiner (Chair of Governors) – Governor with Responsibility for Safeguarding
SAFEGUARDING IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF EVERYONE.
