Safeguarding

 

At the academy we share a purpose with parents to educate and keep children safe from harm. 

 

We are committed to working with parents positively, openly and honestly. We ensure that all parents are treated with respect, dignity and courtesy. We respect parents’ rights to privacy and confidentiality and will not share sensitive information unless we have permission or it is
necessary to do so in order to protect a child.


The John Curwen Co-operative Primary Academy will share with parents any concerns we may have about their child unless to do so may place a child at risk of harm.


We encourage parents to discuss any concerns they may have with Sue Balfour-Bellamy, Lisa Somerville and Julie Willett. Please in the first instance contact the Academy office to arrange a suitable appointment.


The academy’s child safeguarding policy is available by accessing the academy website or a written copy will be provided on request to the academy office.

Social Media

 

Below are links that will help parents understand the safeguarding issues along with guidance on how to put in place safeguarding controls.

 

Many social media sites have minimum legal age limits. Children should only have access to these sites if they meet the minimum age requirement and have the maturity to use the site appropriately. Children of primary school age are below the minimum age requirement.

 

We include links on a number of social media sites so that parents are aware of the risks and can take responsible safeguarding measures when they deem it appropriate to allow their child access.
