Safeguarding at Saint Anne’s

Staff and Governors at Saint Anne’s Catholic Primary are aware that many children are the victims of different kinds of abuse and that they can be subjected to social factors that have an adverse impact upon their lives – including domestic violence, substance misuse, bullying, mental health and radicalisation. We also acknowledge that safeguarding incidents could happen anywhere and staff should be alert to possible concerns arising.

Through our curriculum we teach children to stay safe and happy. We encourage the understanding that any problem or worry that they may have is legitimate, and to share their worries, big or small with their trusted adult; at home; school or with Childline.

Prevent Strategy

Prevent is a government strategy designed to stop people becoming terrorists or supporting terrorist or extremist causes. Many of the things we do in school to help pupils become positive, happy members of society also contribute to the Prevent strategy.

Anti-Bullying

Keeping safe from bullying is an integral part of our PSHE curriculum. Through our Virtues and Values-based curriculum pupils learn how to behave towards each other promoting the British values of tolerance and mutual respect.
