School Safeguarding

CHEPSTOW SCHOOL SAFEGUARDING STATEMENT

At Chepstow School our priority is to ensure our students are safe and feel safe. We aim to promote our core values of tolerance and respect in all aspects of school life.

Safeguarding legislation and government guidance says that safeguarding means:

  • Protecting children from maltreatment
  • Preventing impairment of children’s health or development
  • Ensuring that children are growing up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care
  • Taking action to enable all children and young people to have the best outcome

Safeguarding includes child protection, health care plans, health and safety, site security, safety on school trips, anti-bullying work and so much more.

Chepstow School adheres to the following three DFE safeguarding documents:

·         Respect and Resilence

·         Keeping Learners Safe

·         The Prevent Duty 2015

All staff receive annual Child Protection and Safeguarding update training and are aware of the procedures for passing on concerns within school. If any members of the school or local community have concerns about the welfare of a child in the school, please pass them on to the School Child Protection Team.
