Our Community MAT

Our Community Multi Academy Trust is a group of town, city and village schools that have joined together to provide the very best education for the children in our care and where we believe that education is very much a matter of the individual.

Safeguarding

Milstead and Frinsted Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

All staff and members of the school community have a role to play to keep our children safe. The list below defines those with specific responsibilities for safeguarding

To promote a safe environment for children, our selection and recruitment process includes all statutory checks on staff and regular volunteers including enhanced DBS (disclosure and barring service) checks.  New Staff and Volunteers are also required to complete a thorough and rigorous induction.

All staff receive regular safeguarding training and updates, including a full annual training session at the beginning of each academic year.  All statutory training is undertaken including ensuring all staff have read and understood the relevant sections of Keeping Children Safe in Education as a minimum. Further bitesize training across the year is carried for all staff at regular intervals. This training is monitored and comprehensive records are kept.

Attendance is monitored closely and concerns are dealt with promptly. We believe in having excellent relationships with the families of our children and endeavour to use these relationships to ensure the best possible outcomes with pupils, including good school attendance.

We work effectively with other agencies and parent/carers in order to best safeguard children. We 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.

If you are concerned about a child’s welfare, please record your concern, and any observations or conversation heard, and report to one of the Designated Safeguarding Leads as soon as possible. Do Not Leave The School Site until you have shared your concern appropriately
