Monksdown Safeguarding Charter

 All settings providing education to children will:

  • Work in partnership with other agencies to safeguard and promote the welfare of all children in keeping with the LSCB’s ‘Levels of Need Guidance’ to secure improved outcomes for young people
  • Ensure that safer recruitment practices and safeguarding policies and procedures set out a culture of vigilance and challenge
  • Provide induction and regular training that enable all adults to recognise signs of abuse and neglect; act in the interests of the child and maintain an attitude ‘it could happen here’.
  • Work collaboratively with other agencies to promote early help for young people and families before their needs escalate to a point where intervention would be needed via a statutory assessment.
  • Challenge ourselves and others to ensure actions are completed in a timely way and press for reconsideration if the situation does not improve.
  • Quality assure all safeguarding practices including maintaining support and oversight of the Designated Safeguarding Lead and Safeguarding Team, their actions and decisions and record keeping.
  • Ensure all adults working with young people follow an agreed code of conduct that promotes safe working practices and makes responsibilities and expectations clear, including the understanding that anyone can make a referral.
  • Complete any actions arising from the Local Authority’s 175 Safeguarding Audit in order to ensure policies and procedures follow LSCB, Local Authority and statutory guidance.
  • Implement any learning arising from serious case reviews, for example the need to listen and respond to the views of children, especially when assessing their needs.
  • Provide students with a curriculum which promotes their safeguarding and enables them to maintain healthy relationships.

Operation Encompass is a scheme which operates across Merseyside to ensure schools are informed immediately of any domestic incidents which may involve their pupils.

On the next school day the school’s Safeguarding Officer will be informed that the child or young person has been involved, heard or witnessed a domestic incident. This knowledge, given to schools through Operation Encompass, allows the provision of immediate early intervention through silent or overt support dependent upon the needs and wishes of the child.

The Safeguarding Officer at Monksdown Primary School is the headteacher, Mrs S. Gough and in her absence it is the deputy headteacher Mrs. G. Stewart.

Play your part to protect children

Child protection is the process of protecting individual children identified as either suffering, or likely to suffer, significant harm as a result of abuse or neglect. It involves measures and structures designed to prevent and respond to abuse and neglect.

If you are worried about a child or family then you can always ring, anonymously, Liverpool Careline to share your concerns. You may be the voice a child needs to help protect them.
