Keeping Children Safe

It is so important to us that children at Windmill are safe at school (and feel safe too).

We have a strong culture of reporting concerns and problems, so children, staff, parents and visitors are encouraged to tell someone if they think something is wrong.

Our designated safeguarding leads (DSLs) are: Mr Gibbons, Mrs Coles and Mrs Dexter.  You can find their contact information on the Useful Contacts page.

We have worked hard to ensure there is a strong culture of well-being and safety which helps children to be aware of potential danger and teaches them about risks and behaviours and actions that can help to keep themselves safe.

Our well-developed Personal, Social and Health Education curriculum (including Relationships and Sex Education and Online Safety) permeates throughout school and children testify to this.

We have regular site checks, frequent evacuation/lockdown drills and we ensure all our risk assessments and relevant staff qualifications are up to date.

Our computer network is very secure, with appropriate protection at Wide-Area-Network level, as well as Local-Area-Network monitoring by Senso, which reports directly to Windmill's headteacher and Designated Safeguarding Leads.

 

We work in close partnership with both Telford & Wrekin Safeguarding Children Board and Community Academies Trust Safeguarding Specialists to ensure our practice is excellent.
