SAFEGUARDING IS EVERYONE'S RESPONSIBILITY
Staff and Governors at Wyndcliffe Primary School have had training on ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education September 2020 and the update in January 2021.’ Everyone has signed to say they have read the document and completed a quiz to ensure they have understood their expectations to ensure safeguarding takes priority in everything they do. All staff have been updated with the changes to the document and are aware of the update that was issued in January 2021 post EU exit
New employees receive a copy of the document with their offer letter and are expected to sign a confirmation sheet to say they have read the document and return the quiz with their acceptance letter.
All supply agencies that the school may use have confirmed in writing that their staff are fully compliant with all the up to date safeguarding expectations including the ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education January 2021.’

Safeguarding children means keeping them safe from neglect and abuse. Anyone who comes into contact with children and families has a responsibility to safeguard and promote their welfare. This means:
● Protecting children from maltreatment;
● Preventing impairment of children’s health or development;
● Ensuring children are growing in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care
● Taking action to enable all children to have the best life chances
Are you a Parent or Guardian? Protecting children is your responsibility too...
Here at Wyndcliffe Primary School , we have a duty of care to ensure that all of our children are cared for and protected.
Parents and carers are normally our first point of contact for any concerns we have. We will support parents and carers and work in collaboration with them to protect children. As is is our statutory duty, we will report to Children's Social Care if we have any reason to believe that a child may be at risk of suffering, abuse or neglect. When a referral is made to social care, parents will be notified beforehand except when guidance from social care or the police does not allow this.
