Safeguarding

All the Governors and staff at Barming Primary School share an objective to help keep the children safe by contributing to:

 

  • Providing a safe environment for them to learn.
  • Identifying children who are suffering or likely to suffer significant harm and taking appropriate action, with the aim of making sure that they are kept safe both at home and in the education setting.

 

To achieve this objective, we:

 

  • Aim to prevent unsuitable people from working with the children.
  • Promote safe practice and challenge any poor or unsafe practice.
  • Identify instances where there are grounds for concern about a child’s welfare and initiate or take appropriate action to keep them safe.
  • Contribute to effective partnership working between all those involved in providing services for our children.

 

The Designated Safeguarding Lead is Miss Rootes (Director of School Improvement).

 

Deputy Leads are - Mr Laker (Head of School) , Mrs Rathbone (Key Stage Leader) and Mrs Darby (FLO).

 

The Safeguarding/ Child Protection and Internet Safety named Governor is Mr Brinn.

Anti-Bullying Ambassadors

 

Last academic year, some of our Year 5 children (now Year 6 children) were chosen to be Anti-Bullying Ambassadors.  

On Thursday 21st June 2018 they received training on bullying and its effect.

 

This included: 
 
- What bullying is - What bullying looks like - (including homophobic, physical, mental, emotional and the protected characteristics under the Equality Act 2010) 
 
The reason for this training is so our Ambassadors can support their peers and look out for each other in our fully inclusive school. 
 
In September they are going to create an action plan in order to further improve the school. 
 
At Barming Primary School we strive to stamp out bullying.
