Safeguarding

Safeguarding

Staff and Governors at Beechwood Primary are aware that many children are the victims of different kinds of abuse and that they can be subjected to social factors that have an adverse impact upon their lives – including domestic violence, substance misuse, bullying,  mental health and radicalisation. We also acknowledge that safeguarding incidents could happen anywhere and staff should be alert to possible concerns arising. 

Whatever their background and culture, age, disability, gender, racial origin or religious belief we believe that children have the right to participate in a society and environment which is safe and free from violence, fear, abuse, bullying and discrimination. They have the right to be protected from harm, exploitation and abuse, and to be provided with safe environments in which to live and play.

Through our curriculum, we teach children to stay safe and happy. We encourage the understanding that any problem or worry that they may have is legitimate, and to share their worries, big or small with their trusted adult; at home; school or with ChildLine.
