Southern Road Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all its pupils. We believe that:

  • All children have the right to be protected from harm
  • Children need to be safe and to feel safe in school
  • Children need support which matches their individual needs, including those who may have experienced abuse
  • All children have the right to speak freely and voice their values and beliefs
  • All children must be encouraged to respect each other’s values and support each other
  • All children have the right to be supported to meet their emotional, and social needs as well as their educational needs – a happy healthy sociable child will achieve better educationally
  • Schools can and do contribute to the prevention of abuse, victimisation, bullying, exploitation, radicalisation, extreme behaviours, discriminatory views and risk taking behaviours
  • All staff and visitors have an important role to play in safeguarding children and protecting them from abuse

Safeguarding is defined as:

  • Protecting children from maltreatment
  • Preventing impairment of children’s health or development
  • Ensuring that children are growing up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care
  • Taking action to enable all children to have the best life chances

Southern Road Primary School will fulfil their local and national responsibilities as laid out in the following documents:
