Safeguarding

Treloweth School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

We have a number of policies and procedures in place that contribute to our safeguarding commitment, including our Child Protection Policy which can be viewed at http://treloweth.cornwall.sch.uk/download_file/1615/199

 

What is safeguarding?

Protecting children from maltreatment.

Preventing the impairment of children’s mental and physical health or development.

Ensuring that children grow up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care.

Taking action to enable all the children to have the best outcomes.

 

 

If you have a concern about a child please speak to our Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL), Annie Walpole.

If she is not available, our Deputy Designated Safeguarding Leads (DDSL) are Mrs Jo Stoddern and Mrs Linda May.

Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies where there are concerns about a child’s welfare. We will ensure that our concerns about our pupils are discussed with parents/carers first, unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child’s welfare.

We actively support the Government’s Prevent Agenda to counter radicalism and extremism.

Operation Encompass

The school uses the services of Operation Encompass, a unique Police and Education early intervention safeguarding partnership which supports children and young people exposed to domestic abuse.

Operation Encompass is the reporting to schools before the start of the next  school day when a child or young person has been involved or exposed to a domestic abuse incident the previous evening.

The information is given in strict confidence to a school’s Key Adult to enable support to be given dependent on the needs and wishes of the child.
