The health, safety and wellbeing of our students is of paramount importance to all of us at Waldegrave School, and underpins everything we do. We have a well established team-approach to safeguarding, which is seen as a whole school responsibility, and encompasses all staff, governors, volunteers, visitors and contractors. You may access our safeguarding and child protection policy via the school policies page.

Whole school approach

The starting point of our safeguarding policy is that every adult in the school is responsible for safeguarding and promoting the welfare of our students. All staff undergo annual training and refresher courses to familiarise themselves with their safeguarding responsibilities and with the policy and procedures dealing with safeguarding. We have a comprehensive system of support in place for our students, which includes tutors, student support officers, phase leaders, a family support worker and school counsellors. The aim is to identify any student at risk of harm as early as possible and to protect that student from harm.

We are guided by, and fully compliant with, the government document Keeping Children Safe in Education 2023 and its definitions of harm (neglect and physical, emotional and sexual abuse) and of safeguarding issues which include: 

  • online safety 
  • mental health 
  • child criminal exploitation 
  • radicalisation 
  • substance abuse 
  • peer to peer abuse 
  • domestic abuse 
  • honour based abuse.
