Overall Aims

Everyone in the education service shares an objective to help keep children and young people safe by:

  • Providing a safe environment for children and young people to learn in education settings.
  • 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
  • Taking action to enable all children to have the best outcomes.
  • Keeping children safe in education

Our Commitment

Lillington Nursery and Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all its pupils. It is the responsibility of all school staff, governors and volunteers to keep children safe.

 Lillington Nursery and Primary School will therefore:

  •  Establish and maintain an environment where children feel secure and are encouraged to talk and are listened to.
  • Ensure that staff can identify welfare concerns and take appropriate action to address their concerns
  • Ensure children know that there are adults in the school whom they can approach if they are worried
  • Include opportunities in PHSE curriculum for children to develop the skills they need to recognise and stay safe from abuse
  • Recognise that each pupil’s welfare is of paramount importance and that some children may be especially vulnerable to abuse e.g. those with special educational needs, those living in adverse circumstances or those who witness violence.

All staff at Lillington Nursery and Primary School receive annual safeguarding training as well as receiving regular information which ensures that we all stay fully updated and alert, especially with safeguarding concerns within the local area.

Safeguarding is everyone’s business!

Online Safety

 Online Safety is an integral part of a child’s learning journey and is one that we take very seriously. Being online is, more than ever, is a regular part of children’s lives. The opportunities and skills that are available online for both educational and social reasons are immense – we ensure that these skills are achieved safely through PSHCE and computing lessons. Children are taught how to take advantage of these opportunities whilst staying safe. Our staff regularly share and impart Online Safety knowledge to all children.

Top Ten Tips to Keep Safe Online

1. Don’t post any personal information online – like your address, email address or mobile number.

2. Think carefully before posting pictures or videos of yourself. Once you’ve put a picture of yourself online, most people can see it and may be able to download it, it’s not just yours anymore.

3. Keep your privacy settings as high as possible.

4. Never give out your passwords.

5. Don’t befriend people you don’t know.

6. Don’t meet up with people you’ve met online. Speak to your parent or carer about people who are suggesting you do.

7. Remember that not everyone online is who they say they are.

8. Think carefully about what you say before you post something online.

9. Respect other people’s views. Even if you don’t agree with someone else’s views, it doesn’t mean you need to be rude.

10. If you see something online that makes you feel uncomfortable, unsafe or worried, leave the website, turn off your computer, if you want to and tell a trusted adult immediately.

Prevent Strategy

 As part of Lillington’s ongoing safeguarding and child protection duties, we are fully behind the Government’s Prevent Strategy.

From 1 July 2015 all schools are subject to a duty under section 26 of the Counter-Terrorism and Security Act 2015, in the exercise of their functions, to have “due regard to the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism”. This duty is known as the ‘Prevent Duty for Schools’.

At Lillington Nursery and Primary School, we build pupils’ resilience to radicalisation by promoting fundamental British Values and enabling our pupils to challenge extremist views. You can read about what we do to promote British Values in the relevant section of our website.

The statutory guidance refers to the importance of Prevent awareness training to equip staff to identify children at risk of being drawn into terrorism and to challenge extremist ideas. All staff have also completed online training on the Prevent Strategy.
