Ensuring that all children are safe at The Highway Primary School is given the upmost importance. Children cannot thrive academically unless they are in an environment where they feel completely safe. Good mental health and wellbeing is an integral part of having a successful education, and we work hard to ensure this for all our children. The school is committed to safeguarding and prompting the wellbeing of all our children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
Everyone who comes into contact with children and their families has a role to play in safeguarding children. School staff are particularly important as they are in a position to identify concerns early and provide help for children.
We ask all adults in school to be aware of any potential dangers and follow three simple steps if they have any concerns.
Listen, Record, Report
Sometimes the smallest observation can be vital in informing the school of potential risks and removing them from a child’s life.
The school works closely with safeguarding services provided by London Borough of Bromley and well as other external agencies. We access high quality training for all adults in school, offer support for parents and carers on online safety as well as educating the children to develop their own understanding of keeping themselves safe.
More information on the school’s procedures can be found in the safeguarding policy and its supporting documents.
The Designated Lead for Safeguarding is Mrs Hallett . She is supported y Miss Bennett and Mrs Hodson as Deputy DSL's.
