Fryent Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
Our school wants to work with children, parents and the community to ensure the safety and protection of children and to give them the very best start in life. We aim to create an environment in our school which is safe and secure for all children. Through providing activities and opportunities in the PSHE curriculum we aim to equip our children with the skills they need to stay safe. E.g. we enable children to have the self confidence and the vocabulary to resist inappropriate approaches and encourage children to develop a sense of autonomy and independence.
We follow the guidelines laid down by the Local Safeguarding Children Board and staff receive regular training in Safeguarding.
We work with Brent’s Duty Social Work teams and if a report is to be made to the authorities, we take advice in deciding whether we should inform the child's parents at the same time.
Copies of our Safeguarding policies (including Child protection) are available in our 'Policies Tab' or from the main office.
Fryent Primary School provides a secure site, which has controlled entry, but the site is only as secure as the people who use it. We ask all people visiting the site to abide by our security procedures. Gates are locked except at the start and end of each day. Doors should be closed to prevent intrusion but to facilitate smooth exits. Visitors, volunteers and parents must only enter through the main entrance and after signing in at the office window. Children will only be allowed home with adults with parental responsibility or confirmed permission. Children are not allowed to leave school alone during school hours, and if collected by an adult, they must be signed out.
We take the issue of bullying very seriously at Fryent Primary School. We have an anti-bullying policy which is reviewed annually. We investigate all reports of bullying from pupils, parents/carers and others and work with all the parties to talk through and resolve the situation. Bullying is defined as when a child is deliberately being made unhappy over a sustained period of time. We make anti-bullying high profile through assemblies, our curriculum and our active participation in Anti bullying week every year.
