Safeguarding

Fowlmere Primary School places the upmost importance on keeping its pupils safe. All adults working in school (voluntary or paid) have undergone a DBS (formerly, CRB) check. All adults working in school have received Safeguarding training, including child protection training and they recognise the need to be observant of children and to report any concerns to the lead person for child protection.

The designated person for child protection and safeguarding lead is currently the Head-teacher: Mr Philip Atkin
The governor with designated responsibility for safeguarding is: Mr Nico Schonken
E-Safety in the Curriculum

ICT and online resources are increasingly used across the curriculum. We believe it is essential for E-Safety guidance to be given to the pupils on a regular and meaningful basis. E-Safety is embedded within our curriculum and we continually look for new opportunities to promote E-Safety. Educating pupils about the online risks that they may encounter outside school is delivered as part of the taught curriculum and also informally when opportunities arise.

Pupils are taught about being safe online including the use of privacy settings, copyright, respecting other people’s information, safe use of images and other important areas through discussion, modelling and appropriate activities.

Pupils are aware of the impact of Cyber bullying and know how to seek help if they are affected by any form of online bullying. Pupils are also aware of where to seek advice or help if they experience problems when using the internet and related technologies; i.e. parent or carer, teacher or trusted staff member.
