At Wavell the concept of ‘Safeguarding’ all members of our school community underpins everything that we do.
All members of staff receive regular training in identifying and raising child protection concerns, dealing appropriately with disclosures, and handling sensitively issues around radicalisation and extremism (The Prevent Duty), Female Genital Mutilation (FGM), online safety, sexual health and appropriate relationships, and drugs and alcohol awareness. Our detailed policies regarding all these issues are reviewed regularly, and can be found on our Documents & Policies page of the website.
All students in our school are able to talk to any member of staff about concerns which are causing them to worry. The staff will listen to the student, take their worries seriously and share the information with the Safeguarding Lead. In addition, we provide students with information about who they can talk to outside of school, both within the community and with local or national organisations that can provide support or help.
