Park View School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare, both physical and emotional, of every pupil both inside and outside of the school premises. We implement a whole-school preventative approach to managing safeguarding concerns, ensuring that the wellbeing of pupils is at the forefront of all action taken.

It will be achieved by:

  • Creating a culture of safer recruitment by adopting procedures that help deter, reject or identify people who might pose a risk to children.
  • Teaching pupils how to keep safe and recognise behaviour that is unacceptable.
  • Identifying and making provision for any pupil that has been subject to abuse.
  • Ensuring that members of the governing board, the Head Teacher and staff members understand their responsibilities under safeguarding legislation and statutory guidance, are alert to the signs of child abuse and know to refer concerns to the DSL.
  • Ensuring that the Head Teacher and any new staff members and volunteers are only appointed when all the appropriate checks have been satisfactorily completed.
