Safeguarding at Kendrick School

At Kendrick we believe that every student has, at all times and in all situations, a right to feel safe and protected from any situation or practice that results in a student being physically or psychologically damaged.

As a consequence:

  • We accept that all staff are an integral part of the student safeguarding process
  • We accept totally that safeguarding students is an appropriate responsibility for all staff and the Governing body and wholly compatible with pedagogic responsibilities
  • We recognise that safeguarding children in this school is a responsibility for all staff including volunteers and the governing body
  • Will ensure that all staff in the school are aware of the possibility that a student is at risk of suffering harm, and know how to report concerns or suspicions
  • Will designate a senior member of staff, the Headteacher, who is responsible for coordinating action within the school and liaising with other agencies
  • Will safeguard the welfare of children whilst in the school and take positive measures to address bullying
  • Will share our concerns with others who need to know and assist in any referral process
  • All staff are given training every three years (training took place September 2014
  • New staff receive training within one month of joining Kendrick
