Safeguarding

Child Protection/Safeguarding

 

Great Barford Primary Academy is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.  

We have a number of policies and procedures in place that contribute to our safeguarding commitment, including our Child Protection Policy which can be viewed below.

Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a child's welfare.  We will ensure that our concerns about our pupils are discussed with his/her parents/carers first unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child's welfare.  

We actively support the Government's Prevent Agenda, to counter radicalism and extremism.

Guidance for Parents

 

  • Parents should be aware before, in respect of school events, that images must be for private use only
  • Unfamiliar persons may be confronted, to ensure those without a connection to the school are not filming covertly
  • Parents should not take photos or film while assisting with children dressing or changing
  • We do ask that photos and videos are not put onto social networking sites such as Facebook as the children’s names may be “tagged”, thus identifying them without parental consent.
