Melbury Primary School has a duty of care to all pupils. As staff, we collectively work hard to protect children from harm and to safeguard their wellbeing. Everyone at Melbury School is jointly responsible for safeguarding but we do have a dedicated team of trained Safeguarding Leads:
Any adult, parent/carer or child can report a concern to the safeguarding team who will take the issue seriously, fully investigate and then offer support where needed.
The role of safeguarding in school is to education children about keeping themselves safe, happy and well. Our curriculum supports this through weekly P.S.H.E sessions as well as one off enrichment days, assemblies and visitors.
To support us with our duty to safeguard and Keeping Children Safe in Education requirements we have the Smoothwall monitoring software deployed on all devices. Pupils are not be left using a device unsupervised.
If you have any questions regarding safeguarding, our role as a team in the school or would like to know more about a specific issue please do not hesitate to get in touch.
