The Safeguarding of our School Community is of the utmost importance. Please read our Early Help, Safeguarding & Child Protection Policy for further information. This is currently supplemented by our Child Protection and safeguarding: COVID-10 Addendum.
Our staff, and those working in school on a voluntary basis, are recruited in line with Safer Recruitment Procedures. The school ensures that all appropriate checks are carried out on all staff and volunteers. Visitors to the school are asked to read our Safeguarding Leaflet which outlines our Safeguarding Procedures.
The school complies with the guidance detailed within the Department for Education’s Keeping Children Safe in Education document.
Our staff receive annual Safeguarding Training in addition to specific training including Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) Training and Prevent Duty Training.
Our Safeguarding Team is made up of:
Designated Safeguarding Lead
Deputy Safeguarding Lead
Additional Members of the Safeguarding Team
Ms Begum (Family Support Worker)
Mrs Sherriff (Attendance and Admissions Officer)
Our Link Governor for Safeguarding is Mr Omar Deria
Our Chair of Governors is Mr Oladapo Asuni.
Both Mr Deria and Mr Asuni can be contacted via the school office.
Any Safeguarding concerns should be reported to a member of the Safeguarding Team immediately.
If you have a safeguarding concern about a member of staff, this must be reported to our Head Teacher, Mrs Ttoffali or the Local Authority Designated Officer (LADO) who can be contacted on 0203 373 3392 or email CPRT.LADO@newham.gov.uk.
Our school is part of the Operation Encompass project which runs jointly between school and Newham Borough Metropolitan Police.
Operation Encompass is a unique Police and Education early intervention safeguarding partnership which supports children and young people exposed to domestic abuse.
Operation Encompass is the process of the police reporting to schools before the start of the next school day when a child or young person has been involved or exposed to a domestic abuse incident the previous evening.
The information is given in strict confidence to the Designated Safeguarding Lead to enable support to be given dependent on the needs and wishes of the child.
For more information, visit the Operation Encompass website.
