Safeguarding

Rothley C of E Academy fully recognises the contribution it can make to protect children and support pupils in school. 

Our staff are constantly alert to the needs of the children and observe when things appear not as they should be. We are committed to the welfare of all the children, we understand and accept our safeguarding responsibilities and feel confident in recording and passing on our concerns immediately to the relevant people.

We are a school where the children learn about safeguarding, feel safe and confident that the school staff will support them when needed.

Every member of staff understands and behaves in line with the safer working practice ‘Code of Conduct’ and the staff feel confident with passing on any concerns to the Head Teacher or Chair of Governors without delay.

 

Operation Encompass

'Operation Encompass is an initiative enhances communication between the police and schools where a child is at risk from domestic abuse. The purpose of the information sharing is to ensure schools have more
information to support safeguarding of children. By knowing that the child has had this experience, the school is in a better position to understand and be supportive of the child's needs and possible behaviours. Operation Encompass will complement existing safeguarding procedures.'
