WHAT IS SAFEGUARDING?
WHAT IS CHILD PROTECTION?
Child Protection is part of safeguarding process, protecting specific children identified as suffering or likely to suffer significant harm. This includes the child protection procedures which details how to respond to concerns about a child.
The school pays full regard to DfE guidance ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education’ September 2020. We ensure that all appropriate measures are applied in relation to everyone who works in the school who is likely to be perceived by the children as a safe and trustworthy adult including e.g. volunteers and staff employed by contractors. Safer recruitment practice includes scrutinising applicants, verifying identity and academic or vocational qualifications, obtaining professional and character references, checking previous employment history and ensuring that a candidate has the health and physical capacity for the job. It also includes undertaking interviews and, where appropriate, ISA and Criminal Records Bureau checks.

At Cranbrook Primary School we want all our children, irrelevant of their context, to feel safe, secure and happy, so that they can voice their feelings and have the resilience to overcome barriers to their learning and become confident, successful and responsible citizens. Our school is committed to Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all of its pupils. We recognise that some children may be especially vulnerable to abuse and that children who are abused or neglected may find it difficult to develop a sense of self-worth, to view the world in a positive way or achieve academically. We will always take a considered and sensitive approach in order that we can support all of our pupils.
Safeguarding is the action that is taken to promote the welfare of children and protect them from harm.
To protect children from being maltreated.
To prevent a child facing impairment of their development or physical or mental health.
To make sure that children are given care in their childhood that’s safe and effective.

At Cranbrook Primary School we ensure that through our school vision, rules, curriculum and teaching we promote British values including democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.
Online safety is trying to be safe on the internet and is the knowledge of maximizing the user's personal safety and security risks to private information and property associated with using the internet, and the self-protection from computer crime in general.
