Safeguarding

We recognise our moral and statutory responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of all pupils. We endeavour to provide a safe and welcoming environment where children are respected and valued. We are alert to the signs of abuse and neglect and follow our procedures to ensure that children receive effective support, protection and justice. The Senior Designated Lead (SDL) is Mrs Tracey Leganski. For a copy of the School’s Child Protection and Safeguarding Policy please click on the policies link under the information tab above.The procedures contained in this policy apply to all staff and governors and are consistent with those of the Devon Safeguarding Children Board (DSCB).

e-safety Statement

At St. Andrew's Primary Academy we are committed to the use of computer technologies and recognise the Internet as a valuable tool for learners of all ages. We acknowledge that computers and the internet do have the potential for inappropriate use and access to undesirable material and that we have a duty of care to protect our pupils.

All pupils use computer facilities, including the internet, as an essential part of the curriculum and to support learning opportunities within the school. There are well publicised concerns regarding access to materials on the internet that would be unsuitable for pupils. The school takes reasonable steps to minimise the access to unsuitable material by ensuring supervised usage of the internet alongside a filtered internet service provider which prevents access to specific internet sites.

For more information about e-safety, or any other safeguarding issue, please see the information board by the school office, or use the links below.

Prevent Duty

In July 2015, the Government published advice for Governing bodies, school leaders and school staff. The advice explained what the Prevent Duty means for school and how schools should demonstate compliance with the duty.

The Prevent Duty is part of the school's safeguarding procedures and practices.

The leaflet below has been created on preventing terrorism and radicalisation within our Communities.
