Safeguarding & e-safety

The trustees, governors and staff of Twickenham School are committed to providing a safe and secure environment for students, staff and visitors, promoting a climate in which students and adults will feel confident about sharing any concerns they may have about their own safety or the well-being of others.

Twickenham School acknowledges the duties conferred by statute, including the Children Acts 1989 & 2004, Section 175 of the 2002 Education Act, the Protection of Freedoms Act 2012 and the guidance contained in ‘Working Together to Safeguard Children’, ‘What To Do If You’re Worried A Child Is Being Abused’, the current DfE Circular ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education’, as well as procedures produced by the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames for use with its schools. The school safeguarding policy is applicable to all on and off-site activities undertaken by students whilst they are the responsibility of the school.

 There are four main elements to the school’s safeguarding work with students:

a) Prevention - Through the teaching and pastoral support offered to students and providing a safe environment. We also inform students of potential risks and their ‘stay safe’ responsibilities, through assemblies and other activities. 
b) Procedures for identifying and reporting cases, or suspected cases, of abuse. 
c) Support to students who may have been abused or are at risk of abuse. 
d) Ensuring that we practise safe recruitment, checking the suitability of staff and volunteers to work with children.
