          Keeping your child Safe

          Safeguarding 

          What is safeguarding?

          Safeguarding is essentially about keeping children and young people safe from abuse or neglect.

          All those who come into contact with children and families in their everyday work, including people who do not have a specific role in relation to child protection, have a duty to safeguard and promote the welfare of children.

          Why is safeguarding important?

          By doing this we will enable children to maximise their own life chances.

          Signs

          If you notice anything that concerns you, talk to your child to see if you can find out what is happening. If your child becomes distressed or you are not happy with the explanations, you could talk to our designated safeguarding staff at school, an adult you trust or call a helpline or children’s social care services.

          Some signs to look for are:

          • bruises or other injuries
          • a change in behaviour – from quiet to loud, or from happy-go-lucky to withdrawn pain or discomfort
          • fear of a particular person, or a reluctance to be alone with them         
          • secrecy around a relationship with a particular person
          • reluctance to discuss where they go, or who they are with
          • sexual talk or knowledge beyond their years
          • being watchful, or always on edge        
          • losing interest in their appearance
          • hobbies or family life
          • having money and refusing to say where it has come from
          • wetting the bed
          • becoming clingy.

          How do we ensure that we safeguard all pupils?

          It is our priority to promote the welfare of, and effectively safeguard, the children in our care by:

          • valuing all our pupils as individuals
          • listening to pupils and taking only decisions that are in their best interest.
          • respecting our pupils as individuals and ensuring they feel safe to raise any concerns within our school community.
          • ensuring that all adults entering the building sign in and have access to our visitor policy
          • ensuring adherence to school policies on confidentiality and protection of personal information
          • making sure all governors, staff, visitors and anyone else who is involved in the day to day life of Park High School are aware of and committed to the safeguarding policy and child protection procedures
          • recruiting staff and volunteers safely, ensuring all necessary checks are made
          • adopting a code of conduct for all staff and visitors to school which includes digital safety and the use of mobile phones etc.

          What will happen if we feel there is a safeguarding issue?

          As a school we are required to share information about concerns and pupil welfare issues with external agencies on a need to know basis.

          Should a child make a disclosure we will contact the appropriate agencies. If we are advised that a child may be put at further risk and adults should not be informed, we will follow this advice.

          Where allegations concern members of staff these will be dealt with in accordance with our Harrow child protection procedures.

          What do to do if you have a safeguarding concern?

          If you are concerned about a child, speak to the school immediately please ask to speak to our Designated Safeguarding Lead, Karen Wilkinson, or any of our safeguarding officers.

          If you believe that your child is being bullied...

          • Don’t ignore the problem – contact the school as soon as possible and work with the staff. Your child’s form tutor should be your first point of contact
          • Encourage your child to talk to others and /or staff at the school about his/her feelings
          • Try not to over react!  This may make the situation appear worse to your child and it can even frighten them into silence
