At Downsell Primary School we are fully aware and committed to the on-going protection and safety of our pupils, staff and wider community in accordance with DfE guidance ‘Working together to Safeguard Children’ (2015) and ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education’ (2015). An integral part of that work relates to the governments PREVENT strategy and the duties it places on academic institutions.
Our school is committed to providing a secure environment for pupils, where children feel safe and are kept safe. All adults in our school recognise that safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility irrespective of the role they undertake or whether their role has direct contact or responsibility for children or not. Staff will be alert to issues including:
Disclosures by pupils of their exposure to the extremist actions, views or materials of others outside of school, such as in their homes or community groups
Graffiti symbols, writing or art work promoting extremist messages or images
Pupils accessing extremist material online, including through social networking sites
Parental reports of changes in behaviour, friendship or actions and requests for assistance
Use of extremist or ‘hate’ terms to exclude others or incite violence
Intolerance of difference, whether secular or religious or, in line with our equalities policy, views based on, but not exclusive to, gender, disability, homophobia, race, colour or culture
