Safeguarding at Wyborne
The safety and well-being of our children is our key responsibility. We have strict rules on recruitment of staff and ensure that all adults that work with us are vetted through the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS).
We teach our children how to be safe in the school, community and online.
If you have any concerns about the safety of any child, please speak to a member of staff who you feel comfortable with. Alternatively, if your concerns are about the use of digital media, you can report incidents to the Child Exploitation and Online Protection (CEOP) Centre.
All of our staff have been trained on dealing with the signs of abuse and they understand the important role they have to play in protecting our pupils from harm. This includes training on the government’s Prevent Strategy as well as recent guidelines on FGM. We follow a clear set of procedures when concerns arise, and matters are dealt with sensitively.

Safeguarding and Internet Safety
The children are encouraged to use the internet in school to aid their learning and to teach them how to use the internet safely. Our children tell us that they use the internet a lot at home, and it is important that our parents know how to keep them safe online. These links here will provide you with information on internet safety to help with this. If you are worried about your child’s use of the internet, please come and speak to us.
You can read our online safety policy here.
