SAFEGUARDING

Walton High school places the safety and welfare of our students at the heart of the school’s culture and ethos.  We have a child protection policy in place: (Link to policy) and our staff are regularly trained in Child Protection issues.

 

CHILD PROTECTION 

It is our aim to build a culture of teaching the students themselves to share responsibility for their own and others' safety.  If you have a concern regarding the abuse of any member of our community it should be reported to a member of the Child Protection Team without delay.

Helping children to keep themselves safe

 

Children are taught to understand and manage risk through our citizenship, personal, social, health (PSHE) education programme, assemblies and our SEAL (Social and emotional aspects of Learning) principles.  Our approach is designed to help children to think about risks they might overcome. Discussions about risk are empowering and enabling for all children and promote sensible behaviour rather than fear or anxiety. Children are taught how to conduct themselves and how to behave in a responsible manner. Children are also reminded regularly about e-safety and tackling bullying procedures. The school continually promotes an ethos of respect for children, and students are encouraged to speak to a member of staff about any worries they may have.
