Western Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all of its pupils.

Each pupil’s welfare is of paramount importance. All pupils have the right to be safeguarded from harm or exploitation whatever their race, religion, first language, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, age, disability or political or immigration status. We will always take a considered and sensitive approach in order that we can support all of our pupils. In order to fulfil this responsibility effectively, all professionals should make sure their approach is child-centred. This means that they should consider, at all times, what is in the best interests of the child. Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is everyone’s responsibility. All staff members receive appropriate safeguarding and child protection training which is regularly updated. In addition, all staff members receive safeguarding and child protection updates as required, but at least annually, to provide them with relevant skills and knowledge to safeguard children effectively.

Above all else, safeguarding is a part of the culture of our school and is subject to ongoing discussion and review.

Operation Encompass


What is Operation Encompass?

The purpose of Operation Encompass is to safeguard and support children and young people who have been involved in a domestic abuse incident. Following an incident at home, children will often arrive at school distressed, upset and unprepared for the day.

Western Primary, the police and the nominated Key Adults in school will be working together to make sure that school staff are made aware of any incident early enough to support pupils in school.

How does it work?

The school has designated Key Adults who are a point of contact for the police. These adults have received specialist training regarding Operation Encompass and domestic abuse and are the school’s Designated Safeguarding Lead or Deputies. If there has been an incident of domestic abuse where children were present, an officer will send this information to the designated Key Adult in school on the morning following the incident. The member of staff will then feedback to the child’s class teacher so that child can be supported as necessary within school.

Prevent Duty

The Aims of Prevent

The aim of Prevent is to stop people from becoming terrorists or supporting terrorism. Prevent also extends to supporting the rehabilitation and disengagement of those already involved in terrorism. The Prevent duty requires specified authorities such as education, health, local authorities, police and criminal justice agencies (prisons and probation) to help prevent the risk of people becoming terrorists or supporting terrorism. It sits alongside long-established safeguarding duties on professionals to protect people from a range of other harms, such as substance abuse, involvement in gangs, and physical and sexual exploitation. The duty helps to ensure that people who are susceptible to radicalisation are supported as they would be under safeguarding processes.

The person with responsibility for Prevent at Western is

Tim Broad, Headteacher and DSL.
