Safeguarding

What is Safeguarding?

 

Safeguarding means everything to do with keeping children safe. For example, it can be as simple as keeping children safe when playing in the school garden, to making sure equipment and resources are working properly.

At Calder Valley Steiner School, the welfare and safety of all our children is of paramount importance. We take our Safeguarding responsibilities extremely seriously, including all our documentation.

All our staff receive a DBS check before we confirm their employment, and receive a copy of the school Safeguarding Policy (updated annually) alongside the DOE documentation. Safeguarding updates and information are also regularly circulated in team meetings and on staff training days.

We foster an safe environment in school, where students are surrounded by trusted and familiar staff should they have any worries or problems they’d like to talk about.

Online Safety

 

The school also takes online safety seriously and we do all we can to support parents in keeping their children safe whilst using the internet. The school now provides a copy of the NSPCC booklet to all families on admission to the school – if you require an additional copy of this, just let us know.
We will disseminate new booklets at the beginning of each new academic year.
