Our staff, governors, outside providers and parent volunteers are required to undergo a Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS) check before they can work at the school.
We also have information for parents with links to support children’s online safety
THE PREVENT DUTY
From July 2015 all schools (and other organisations) have a duty to protect children from radicalisation and extremism.
Through our Christian values we teach children about tolerance and mutual respect. The school will make sure that any discussions are suitable for the age and maturity of the children involved and we are always vigilant and think "it could happen here."
Operation Encompass has been designed with Sussex Police to provide early reporting to schools and colleges of any domestic abuse incidents that occur in which a child was present, ordinarily resides at the incident location or with an involved party. We know that children can be significantly affected through witnessing or being exposed to domestic abuse and this operation will allow us to better support our pupils and their families.
The Headteacher liaises with the police and will be able to use information that has been shared, in confidence, to ensure that the right support is available should it be required by a child and/or their family.
