What is Safeguarding?
Protecting children 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 has a Safeguarding policy in place which includes all practical safeguarding issues and sets out the process to be followed in the event of any safeguarding concerns being raised at school. 

Further information can be found in the policy on our website under Policy & Documents.

Prevent radicalisation, i.e. Prevent duty
Preventing extremism and radicalisation is one of the safeguarding issues where the school has a legal duty. Our whole school approach is to embed countering extremism into our school values and rules and a broad curriculum. Our aim is to build a resilient community around respect, tolerance, inclusiveness and equality.

Please do contact our Prevent Lead in the school, Mr R.Bamber (mr.bamber@westburyparkschool.co.uk) if you have any concerns about your child being radicalised.
