One of the objectives in the school's Safeguarding policy is to provide a safe environment for the children to learn. They are encouraged to talk about their problems with an adult at school, which is why it is important for the children to have a positive and friendly relationship with their teacher/teaching assistant. When a policy is reviewed and updated, all staff members read it to understand any new changes. Also, once a year (on an inset day) all staff read the policies to remind themselves of the procedures to follow. This Is important because all adults need to fully understand the duty of care they are responsible for, because children and young people need to feel safe and secure whilst at school (Every Child Matters outcome).
