Safeguarding

Chadsmead Primary Academy is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
 
We have a number of policies and procedures in place that contribute to our safeguarding commitment, including our Child Protection Policy which can be viewed in the policies section on 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 parents/carers first, unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child's welfare.
The safety and well-being of our children is a key priority for everyone and Chadsmead Primary Academy is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. This includes operating in a safe manner and ensuring that everyone is safe from harm including abuse, bullying or accident.
 
Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is defined as: 
  • protecting children from maltreatment; 
  • preventing impairment of children's health or development; 
  • ensuring that children grow up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care; and 
  • taking action to enable all children to have the best outcomes.
 
This means that we have stringent safeguarding and child protection procedures in place that all staff (including supply staff, volunteers and governors) must ensure they are aware of and operate to.
