Safeguarding Statement

 

Safeguarding is Everyone’s Business

 

At St. Cuthbert’s Catholic Primary School we recognise our moral and statutory responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of all children.

 

We make every effort to provide an environment in which children and adults feel safe, secure, valued and respected, and feel confident to talk if they are worried, believing they will be effectively listened to.

 

If you are concerned about a child’s welfare, please record your concern, and any observations or conversations heard, and report to the DSL immediately.

Do not conduct your own investigation

Peer Mediators

Peer Mediators delivering our Anti Bullying Assembly - 12th November 2021

Surrey Anti-Bullying Charter Mark Letter

The Gold Surrey Anti-Bullying Charter Mark award is a celebration of a whole school approach to anti-bullying work. This accreditation has been awarded by the Charter Mark following their inspection.  While as a school, we had initially expected the 'Silver' award, the inspectors were so impressed by the evidence provided, that St. Cuthbert's Catholic Primary School has been awarded the 'Gold' accreditation.

 

The Charter Mark inspectors look into how effectively incidents of bullying and peer conflict are responded to and managed.  They look for evidence how the School promotes the development of a culture and policy that sits comfortably and supportively within the safeguarding ethos of a school:

  • ensuring that schools provide a safe and happy place to learn, for children;
  • allowing them to achieve school improvement;
  • raise achievement and attendance;
  • promote equality and diversity;
  • develop resilience;
  • ensure the safety and well-being of the pupils and the school community.

 

Not only did the inspectors look at written evidence, they also interviewed some of our Peer Mediators who have been working very hard in presenting the assemblies and the work they do on the playground.

 

The peer mediators work diligently with our Behaviour Lead, in raising their profile and responsibilities with regards to conflict resolution and their ideas for improving the way that incidents are dealt with.  We have produced restorative question cards, which every member of staff carries on their lanyard, which has seen a cohesive approach to questioning children in the event of an incident.
