We believe
At Dubmire Primary Academy we are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all children. Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is everyone’s responsibility. Everyone
who comes into contact with children and families has a role to play.

The purpose of this policy statement is:
• to protect children from harm and promote their welfare – children who feel safe can achieve more.
• to provide governors, staff, children and their families with the overarching principals and our approach to keeping children safe.
• to support our understanding and implementation of Keeping Children Safe in Education 2023.

We are clear that the welfare of all children is paramount regardless of age, gender, culture, language, race, ability, sexual identity, or religion. We are committed to ensuring all of our practices are child-centred. This means, at all times, we act in the best interests of our children.

This policy applies to anyone working on behalf of the school including those commissioned to deliver services on the school’s behalf, peripatetic and supply staff and student placements. We take our responsibility to keep children safe seriously.

Operation Encompass is a partnership between police and schools, and it is now in place in all 43 police forces in England and Wales.

Operation Encompass is a police and education early information-sharing partnership enabling schools to offer immediate support to children and young people experiencing domestic abuse.

Operation Encompass ensures there is a phone call or notification to a trained member of school staff before the start of the next school day after an incident of police-attended domestic abuse where there are children related to either of the adult parties involved.

This timely information sharing enables appropriate support to be provided for that child so that all interactions, from when the child first arrives at the school gates, are of a positive nature.
