Safeguarding and E-Safety

At South Rise we are committed to ensuring the well-being of all children in our school.  In our professional capacity we are aware young children are vulnerable and can be at risk. As a school we understand we have a statutory duty to work with other agencies in protecting children from harm and responding to neglect, any form of abuse or risks of radicalisation.  Staff are trained to identify when a pupil may be at risk of neglect, abuse or exploitation and they report any concerns to the designated child protection officer, Head of School or Executive Headteacher using the agreed format. In addition to statutory duties we acknowledge that the school has pastoral responsibility towards all its pupils. Through our vigilance we aim to help build a stronger, safer community.

Safeguarding Policy

 

E-Safety

A core facet of Safeguarding is keeping children safe on-line. South Rise has a comprehensive E-Safety policy - Acceptable Use of the Internet and Digital Technology Policy.
 

On Wednesday 29th November 2015, an E-safety workshop was held by Mrs. Brown and Miss Taylor. The aims of the session were to identify potential dangers connected with internet use, explore ways in which we can protect children from these dangers and to discuss any questions.

Cyber bullying was also addressed during this session. As a school, we recognise that the best way to deal with cyber bullying is to prevent it from happening in the first place. By embedding good, safe ICT practice into all our teaching and learning, incidents can be avoided.
