Safeguarding at St Paul’s
Saint Paul’s Primary School is committed to providing a safe and secure environment for children, staff and visitors and promoting a climate where children and adults will feel confident about sharing any concerns which they may have about their own safety or the well-being of others.
We aim to safeguard and promote the welfare of children by protecting them from maltreatment; preventing impairment of children’s health or development; ensuring that children grow up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care; and taking action to enable all children to have the best outcomes.
The School’s Child Protection (CP) policy draws upon duties conferred by the Children Acts 1989 and 2004.
St Paul’s is part of the Operation Encompass scheme which runs jointly between local schools, the Metropolitan Police and Southwark County Council. Operation Encompass has been designed to provide early reporting on any domestic incidents that occur outside of school and might have an impact on a child in school.
Operation Encompass will ensure that a member of the school staff, referred to by police as a “Key Adult” is informed the next morning that there has been a domestic incident or if a child has been reported as missing. Our Key Adult is Mrs Ali Silke she is fully aware of the sensitive and confidential issues regarding such information.
Through sharing this information with the Key Adult, we can ensure that the child is supported in the most appropriate way during the school day as part of our duty to provide the best support possible for our pupils.
