We take safeguarding very seriously at St Nicholas c of E Primary School. Every adult working in school, including volunteers, are required to undertake relevant safeguarding checks prior to starting work. This involves a DBS check. We have a number of policies and procedures in place that contribute to our safeguarding commitment, including our Child Protection and Safeguarding Policy
Our other policies such as Acceptable Use, Online Safety etc can be found on the Policies page of this website.
St Nicholas C of E Primary School works in partnership with Warwickshire Police and Warwickshire Children's Services to support pupils who are affected by incidents of domestic violence and abuse through a scheme called Operation Encompass (see link to poster below).
When police attend any type of domestic violence or abuse in any household in which a pupil of the school lives, Designated Safeguarding Leads (DSLs) receive a confidential and secure email the following day, notifying them that there has been an incident and that the child may need support.
On receipt of such a notification, DSLs ensure teachers and other staff directly in contact with affected children support them with kindness, care and sensitivity. In addition to supporting children, the process means the school is also in a position to offer parents and carers support as appropriate.
Any information shared with school as part of Operation Encompass is managed and stored with the utmost sensitivity and discretion consistent with all other confidential safeguarding records.
We actively support the Government's Prevent Agenda to counter radicalism and extremism. We have a duty to protect our children against such influences and staff are trained to recognise and deal with this issue.
