At Brook Field we have adopted the definition of the term Safeguarding as stated in Keeping Children Safe in Education.
‘Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is defined for the purposes of this guidance as: protecting children from maltreatment; preventing impairment of children’s health or development; ensuring that children grow up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care; and taking action to enable all children to have the best outcomes.’ (DfE ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education)
All our staff and Governors have completed Level 1 child Protection Training and the ‘College of Policing – Channel general awareness module’ for the Prevent strategy regarding radicalisation and extremism.
The Safeguarding leads have also completed Level 2 and Level 3 of the Child Protection Training. Further to this, the Deputy Designated Safeguarding leads have attended a workshop to raise awareness of Prevent (WRAP).
