Safeguarding: information for Parents and Carers

 

We believe safeguarding and promoting our students welfare is everyone’s responsibility, we work together as a team to achieve this. We listen to our pupils and take seriously what they tell us. We also work with parents and other agencies to achieve the best outcomes for our pupils.

 

Safeguarding is the action that is taken to promote the welfare of children and protect them from harm. Safeguarding means: protecting children from abuse and maltreatment; preventing harm to children's health or development; ensuring children grow up with the provision of safe and effective care.

 

Child protection is part of the safeguarding process. It focuses on protecting individual children identified as suffering or likely to suffer significant harm. This includes child protection procedures which detail how to respond to concerns about a child.

 

There is a safeguarding team within Chiltern Way Academy and a Designated Safeguarding Lead who have all had appropriate training (please see Designated staff under Safeguarding on the website, for contact details). Please do not hesitate to contact either a member of the safeguarding team or Firstresponse (Buckinghamshire Social Care) on 0845 4600001 should you have any concerns about your child.

 

As part of our role in keeping children safe, Chiltern Way Academy, is dedicated to implementing a PREVENT strategy.

 

Prevent supports our students to help to stop them becoming involved in any form of extremist and/or terrorist activities.

We are also dedicated to promoting British Values which can be found by clicking this link: BRITISH VALUES.
