Safeguarding at Rushcroft

Safeguarding Statement

Safeguarding legislation and government guidance states that safeguarding means:

  • Protecting children from maltreatment
  • Preventing impairment of children’s health or development
  • Ensuring that children are growing up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care
  • Taking action to enable all children and young people to have the best outcome

Safeguarding includes Child Protection, Health Care Plans, Health and Safety, Site security, safety on school trips, anti-bullying work and so much more. Recently the government has recognised the vital part that schools can play within the ‘Prevent’ agenda and our staff have undertaken training on anti-radicalisation and extremism. This is all part of safeguarding.

The Child Protection team consists of:

Ms L Shakespeare (extension 233)
Mr G Sonuga (extension 223)
Mr L Baker (extension 260)
Mr S Reed (extension 228)
Ms D Channing (extension 252)
Ms V Godsave (extension 214/259)
Ms P Daniels (extension 220)

The school has a suite of Safeguarding policies.  These are:

These policies are reviewed regularly.  Copies of these, and all other school policies, can be obtained from the school (email office@rushcroft.com).  

All staff receive annual Child Protection and Safeguarding update training and are aware of the procedures for passing on concerns within school. Trained staff then ensure that external support is obtained for the pupil immediately, when appropriate.

If any member of the school or local community has concerns about the welfare of a child in the school, please pass them on.
