Safeguarding

Safeguarding

 

Woodhouse West Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all our staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

 

We have a number of policies and procedures in place that contribute to our safeguarding commitment, which can be viewed in the Policies section of our website.

 

Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a child's welfare. We will ensure that our concerns about our pupils are discussed with his/her parents/carers first unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child's welfare.

 

The following link provides further information and support, we all have a statutory responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of children and young people.

 

We actively support the Government's Prevent Agenda to counter radicalism and extremism.

Anti Bullying

 

 

We take bullying very seriously at Woodhouse West and endeavour to raise awareness in our school so that children are quick to recognise what bullying is, how it affects people and what they can do about it.

 

Activities have included:

  • Anti-bullying posters made by the children.
  • Online safety sessions about cyber bullying, how to recognise it and how to deal with it.
  • Crucial crew sessions on how to deal with peer pressure and bullying.
  • Assemblies where the theme is how school can tackle bullying.
  • Stories and poems about anti-bullying.
  • Anti-bullying charters for classrooms.

 

The Playground Leader scheme trains children to work in the playground encouraging children to join in with games and activities.

 

The ‘Buddy Stop’ also provides a safe place for children to go when they are feeling lonely or would like a friend to play with.
