All adults in our school have a responsibility for Safeguarding. All staff have completed Basic Awareness of Safeguarding Training, led by the Local Safeguarding Children Board (LSCB).

The most recent whole school staff training took place in October 2013.

All adults in school are required to wear an Ashdene Primary School identification Badge, and they must sign in at the school office to receive this.

Where relevant, staff, governors, students and volunteers undertake a CRB check and details of these checks are kept in a single central record in school.

All the policies in school are kept centrally, the safeguarding policy is reviewed annually and its related policies are reviewed regularly.

We believe that it is important to make children and young people aware that unacceptable behaviour towards them should not be tolerated. Our PSHE curriculum supports children to be able to recognise when their safety becomes compromised and to know what they can do about it.

Ashdene Primary school supports its pupils by providing contact details for support systems such as Childline.

All staff are committed to multi-agency working in order to ensure that the best possible outcomes exist for all of the pupils at Ashdene Primary school.
