Safe4me - supporting your child to make safe choices.
The safety and wellbeing of all children and young people is of paramount importance. Child Protection is everyone's responsibility.
Lymington Infant School is fully committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all children and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
All staff have appropriate training, guidance and support to undertake the effective safeguarding of children. Safeguarding training follows the statutory guidance as set out in the document Keeping Children Safe in Education.
Our school aims to:
- Practise safe recruitment by checking the suitability of staff and volunteers
- Raise awareness of child protection issues and equip children with the skills needed to keep them safe
- Implement procedures for identifying and reporting cases/suspected cases of abuse
- Establish a safe environment in which children can learn and develop
- Maintain an ethos where children feel safe, are encouraged to talk and are listened to
