Safeguarding and Online Safety
At Broadwater Down Primary school we are committed to ensuring the safety and well-being of all of our pupils, our staff and visitors. We believe everyone has the responsibility for the safeguarding and protection of our pupils.
As a school we are part of the wider safeguarding system who are responsible for promoting the welfare of all children. We ensure all children have a right to be heard and to have their wishes and feelings taken into account.
We ensure all our staff understand safe professional practice and adhere to and promote our safeguarding and online safety policies.
We identify approaches to educate and raise awareness of online safety throughout our community and we have clear procedures in place when responding to Safeguarding and Online Safety concerns.
