SAFEGUARDING, E- SAFETY and WELL-BEING


SAFEGUARDING


Our school is a community and all those directly connected (staff, governors, parents, families and pupils) have an essential role to play in making it safe and secure.

We welcome suggestions and comments that will contribute to this process. Wrotham School recognises the importance of providing an ethos and environment within school that will help children to feel safe, secure and respected; encourage them to talk openly; and enable them to feel confident that they will be listened to.

We recognise that children who are abused or witness violence are likely to have low self-esteem and may find it difficult to develop a sense of self worth. They may feel helplessness, humiliation and some sense of blame. Our school may be the only stable, secure and predictable element in their lives.
