Safeguarding Procedures

Reporting a safeguarding concern
If you have a Safeguarding concern, it should be reported to the Senior Designated Safeguarding Lead, Mr Stephenson. If he is not available it needs to be reported to another trained designated lead. The deputy Designated Lead is Mr Langdon. The safeguarding governor is Miss Joanne Arundale.

All staff are trained to identify signs of abuse and understand what to do if they are concerned about a child. Being a small school where staff know the children very well we are well placed to identify concerns quickly and act accordingly.

Keeping Children Safe In Education 2021

Our Strategy

All the governors and staff at Nanstallon 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:

  • Prevent unsuitable people from working with the children
  • Identify instances where there are grounds for concern about a child’s
    welfare and initiate or take appropriate action to keep them safe.

Prevent

As part of Nanstallon School’s ongoing safeguarding and child protection duties, we are fully behind the government’s Prevent Strategy.
From 1 July 2015 all schools are subject to a duty under section 26 of the Counter-Terrorism and Security Act 2015, in the exercise of their functions, to have “due regard to the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism”. This duty is known as the Prevent Duty for Schools.

At Nanstallon School, we build pupils’ resilience to radicalisation by promoting fundamental British values and enabling our pupils to challenge extremist views. We know that extremism of all kinds can threaten our safety and undermines our values.
