Core principles of Safeguarding at Wellesley

It is everyone's responsibility to keep children safe.
We maintain an attitude of "It could hapen here"
We ensure that our learners are safe and protected and learn how to keep themselves safe.
We ensure that our learners know who to talk to if they concerns and are assured that their voices are heard.
Children and Young people have a fundamental right to be protected from harm.  Families have a right to expect schools to provide a safe and secure environment.  All schools have a legal duty to work with other agencies, for example social service and the police, to safeguard children's welfare.

We believe that all children have the right to develop and mature safely, without fear of abuse or bullying.

We will follow our child protection procedures and take account of guidance issued by the Department for Education.  All staff receive annual safeguarding training.  Please click this link for our policy: Safeguarding Policy

Safeguarding in school

Through our PSHE lessons and assemblies, children are taught how to make the right choices to keep themselves safe. 

Children are regularly reminded to talk to staff if they do not feel safe and happy, or to make use of worry monsters in Key Stage 1 and Jigsaw Diaries in KS2.  Children are reminded of the Childline numbers if they feel they need to talk to someone outside of school.
