Landewednack School Safeguarding

Safeguarding at Landewednack 

Staff and Governors at Landewednack are aware that many children are the victims of different kinds of abuse and that they can be subjected to social factors that have an adverse impact upon their lives – including domestic violence, substance misuse, bullying,  mental health and radicalisation.

Prevent Strategy

Prevent is a government strategy designed to stop people becoming terrorists  or supporting terrorist or extremist causes. Many of the things we do in school to help pupils become positive, happy members of society also contribute to the Prevent strategy. 

We acknowledge that safeguarding incidents could happen anywhere and staff should be alert to possible concerns arising. 

Through our curriculum we teach children to stay safe and happy. We encourage the understanding that any problem or worry that they may have is legitimate, and to share their worries, big or small with their trusted adult; at home; school or with ChildLine.

Anti-bullying 

Keeping safe from bullying is an integral part of our PSHE curriculum. Through our SHINE values and curriculum pupils learn how to behave towards each other promoting the British values of tolerance and mutual respect. 
Our children tell us that bullying is extremely rare, they speak confidently about different types of bullying and what to do if they were being bullied. Children were able to distinguish between ad hoc name calling and persistent bullying as a result of our teaching and approach to bullying.
