Policy Statement

Safeguarding determines the actions that we take to keep children safe and protect them from harm in all aspects of their education life. As an alternative provision
we are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all our pupils.
The actions that we take to prevent harm; to promote wellbeing; to create safe environments; to educate on rights, respect and responsibilities; to respond to specific issues and vulnerabilities all form part of the safeguarding responsibilities of the provision. As such, this overarching policy will link to other policies which will provide more information and greater detail.


•To provide staff with the framework to promote and safeguard the wellbeing of children and in so doing ensure they meet their statutory responsibilities.
•To ensure consistent good practice across the school.
•To demonstrate our commitment to protecting children.

Principles and Values

Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is everyone’s responsibility. Everyone who comes into contact with children and their families has a role to play. In order to fulfil this responsibility effectively, all staff should make sure their approach is child centred. This means that they should consider, at all times, what is in the best interests of the child.

Safeguarding measures are put in place to minimise harm to children. There may be occasions where gaps or deficiencies in our policies and processes will be highlighted. In these situations, a review will be carried out in order to identify learning and inform the policy, practice and culture of the provision.

All pupils in our provision can talk to any member of staff about situations, or to share concerns, which are causing them worries. The staff will listen to the pupil, take their worries seriously and share the information with the safeguarding lead.

In addition, we provide pupils with information about who they can talk to outside of the provision, both within the community and with local or national organisations that can provide support or help.

As an alternative provision, we review this policy at least annually in line with DfE, HSCP, HCC and any other relevant guidance.
