Safeguarding at Alexandra

What is safeguarding?

Safeguarding is the highest priority, and responsibility, of every member of staff at Alexandra Primary School.  The safety and well-being of our children are paramount to us as a team and our children are respected and valued.  We hope to teach them effective lifelong skills to keep themselves safe and to understand their rights as children.  Safeguarding children in our current climate encompasses many areas: child protection, online safety, the security of our school as a site, health and safety, behaviour, our anti-bullying policy, radicalisation, racism and discrimination, peer on peer abuse and contextual safeguarding amongst others.  Please read the Safeguarding policy below for a more in-depth understanding of our responsibilities to the children.  

Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy

Safeguarding Team

The Designated Safeguarding Team are:

Safeguarding team (ID 1186)

 In September 2022, the government revised a document called Keeping Children Safe in Education It provides clarity that schools should have their own individual safeguarding policy. This policy should meet the needs of their children in their community, with the particular kinds of issues that may be most important for them.

We record all of our concerns about a child using an electronic system called CPOMS. This system helps to monitor children in our school. 

The safety and wellbeing of every child and member of staff at Alexandra is of paramount importance to us.  All staff are trained annually to Safeguarding Children/Child Protection Process Level 1, and receive weekly safeguarding updates. All members of our Safeguarding team have up-to-date Safeguarding Children / Child Protection Process Level 3 and Safer Recruitment Training. All staff also have annual Prevent training.

If you need to speak to anyone about this, please contact our Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) Robert Waiting, or our Deputy Designated Safeguarding Leads (DDSL) Melanie Meek, Polly Jones and Rose Peacock via the school office (020 8546 7176). Our Designated Governor for Safeguarding/Child Protection​ is Georgina Herry.
