Safeguarding

In September 2015, all staff completed update training on safeguarding in schools.  This also included Child Protection Awareness update training.

Thorough risk assessments are carried out during all activities to protect children and staff's health and safety at all times.

Prevent statement

Frodingham Infant School is fully committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all its pupils.  As a school we recognise that safeguarding against radicalisation is no different from safeguarding against any other vulnerability.  All staff are expected to uphold and promote the fundamental principles of British values, including democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.  In formulating this statement the Governing Body have taken account of the guidance from the Department for Education (DfE) who have called for all public bodies to make explicit their preventative measures to minimise the threat of extremism in their setting.

We train the children to practice mindfulness: showing respect to everyone and everything around them.  Staff also practice mindfulness, providing moments of calm, reflection and meditation throughout the day.  These moments help to reduce stress for both adults and children and offer opportunities to visualise targets and practise deep breathing techniques.

The positive strengths  language underpins everything we do.  It has it's roots in the Personal Social Health and Citizenship curriculum, but provides a positive code for us all to live and work by and enables everyone in our Frodingham family to flourish both individually and as a whole.
