Safeguarding

The children’s safety and wellbeing is absolutely central to life at Latimer. We create a safe environment so that our children can flourish and our curriculum equips them with the tools they need to help them protect themselves into their future. Everybody at Latimer is responsible for the safeguarding and wellbeing of our young people. Safeguarding is part of the culture of the school and as a result our children feel safe and are able to learn.

A full programme of child protection training is delivered to all staff on a 3-year basis. In addition, there is staff refresher training each year and when new staff join Latimer. Latimer follows Leicestershire County Councils lead in protecting our children and is proud to hold the Leicestershire E-Safety Award, which recognises our commitment to protecting our children online.

Our designated safeguarding governor is Mrs Simone Greensmith who brings a significant level of expertise to the role.

Keeping safe and happy is a central theme to our school assemblies which are delivered to the whole school on a Monday and revisited in Key Stage assemblies throughout the week. Children are asked to choose 3 safe people, who they can go to with their concerns and we regularly remind them of this. Children report that they feel safe and happy at Latimer.

Our Simple Truths remind children how to behave, however if there are concerns that unwanted behaviours or bullying is taking place we have a clear procedure for staff to follow to ensure any issues are thoroughly investigated and dealt with promptly. We are proud that our children tell us that if poor behaviour does occur that we deal with it quickly and they feel safe in school.

Our curriculum is designed to promote well-being and pupil welfare. Taking responsibility and safeguarding ourselves is central to our learning. Our PSHE curriculum is extensive and covers a wide range of risks that the children may encounter now and in their future. We work closely with Leicestershire Police, Fire and Rescue services and the NSPCC to reinforce key messages. The children receive regular assemblies on issues such as stranger danger, road safety and firework and Halloween safety. This is then reinforced by visits from our emergency services (including PROTECT) and in year 6 all children attend the warning zone.
