All children have the right to be educated in a safe, happy and healthy environment. Any issues that relate to the above that are brought to the school’s attention, will have to be dealt with immediately.
This may mean that Children’s Social Care or another agency such as Families First could be contacted. The school has a duty of care to its pupils to report any issues that may impact on their welfare and well being in school.
The school ensures all staff and those working with our children as volunteers go through the relevant checks ensuring the safety of all our children. All staff are trained by designated officers to deal with issues of safeguarding.
We are able to provide information sharing sessions for our pupils regarding keeping safe when using the internet. Information and special presentations regarding e-safety are also provided for parents.
The Head teacher and one other member of staff are the designated Child Protection officers for Grafton Primary School. There is also a designated Governor for Child Protection and Safeguarding.
The school has adopted a number of policies as set out by Islington. Some of these include policies on Health and Safety, Safeguarding, Whistleblowing, Complaints Procedure, Staff Grievances, Admissions and Performance Management. School policies will be found on the school’s website or on display in the school office.
