Rochford Primary and Nursery School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the physical and emotional wellbeing of every pupil within our school community.

This policy sets out a clear and consistent framework for delivering this promise, in line with safeguarding legislation and statutory guidance.


It will be achieved by:

  • Creating a culture of safer recruitment by adopting procedures that help deter, reject or identify people who might pose a risk to children.
  • Educating pupils on how to keep safe and to recognise behaviour that is unacceptable.
  • Identifying and making provision for any pupil that has been subject to abuse.
  • Ensuring that members of the governing body, the headteacher and staff members understand their responsibilities under safeguarding legislation and statutory guidance, and are alert to the signs of child abuse and know to refer concerns to the designated safeguarding lead (DSL).
  • Ensuring that the headteacher and any new staff members and volunteers are only appointed when all the appropriate checks have been satisfactorily completed.
