Safeguarding... Everybody... Everyday
Boxgrove Primary School is committed to the safety and the well-being of its pupils and staff.
The school recognises the importance of providing an ethos and environment that will help children to feel safe, secure and respected; encourage them to talk openly; and enable them to feel confident that they will be listened to.
In order to help promote this ethos within school, we have a number of resources which provide clear information and support to all pupils and stakeholders. Please see below a list of our Designated Safeguarding Leads (DSLs).
The Difference between Safeguarding and Child Protection
People sometimes wonder what the difference is between the terms safeguarding and child protection.
Safeguarding means: protecting children from abuse and maltreatment. preventing harm to children's health or development. ensuring children grow up with the provision of safe and effective care. taking action to enable all children and young people to have the best outcomes. Child protection is part of the safeguarding process. It focuses on protecting individual children identified as suffering or likely to suffer significant harm. This includes child protection procedures which detail how to respond to concerns about a child.
In practice, Safeguarding is the policies and practices that schools and Governing Bodies employ to keep children safe and promote their well-being. This means everything from security of the buildings, to the safe recruitment of staff and everything in between.
Across our school site, we share safeguarding displays. They are regularly referred to and have an element of interaction to ensure they don’t become ‘wallpaper’ but instead are useful sources of information.
