Child Protection

PREVENT TRAINING – Radicalisation

The head teacher has received PREVENT training (October 2015) and is training her team on how it identify the early stages of radicalisation and what to do. We follow the mantra:
The school is writing their own policy which will reflect current practice.

All staff and governors are currently completing the Channel online training, certificates are filed in the Safeguarding folder in the head teacher’s office.
Child Sexual Exploitation
All staff at Gloucester Road have been trained (March 2015) to identify early cases of child sexual exploitation. At school we use the CSE Screening tool if we have concerns.
Female Genital Mutilation

All staff received training on FGM (March 2015). Teachers know how to identify if a child may be at risk. There are aware of the countries and places within this country where children may be taken to for this to happen. They know the signs to look for and most importantly how to refer, following the schools safeguarding procedures.
