Safeguarding our children is our number one priority and empowering children to stay safe is an important part of our curriculum for the children. We empower children to understand how to keep themselves safe. We teach children to understand that their body belongs to them and how to tell an adult if they are worried or upset about something.
We do this in a number of ways. Each year your child will work with Devon Child Assault Prevention Team (CAP) where they enjoy workshops and assemblies to give them age sensitive information in a fun and informative manner.
In addition to this we are visited by the Life Education caravan where we explore how to stay healthy and look after ourselves.
Each year we work with the NSPCC through their assembly workshops and their online resourcs to help children feel empowered to keep themselves safe and who they can talk to. We use the fun materials and resources linked to the Underwear Rule:
The children and staff have worked together to write a child friendly Safeguarding Policy. We not only display this around the academy but we review it each year through our Family Groups.
