Safeguarding Curriculum Statement

​At Totternhoe CE Academy, safeguarding   is always at the forefront of all that we do around the  care, nurture, teaching and learning of all our children.
Safeguarding is taught through different aspects of the curriculum.
Online safety    is  taught through   the   Computing    curriculum, following a progression of age appropriate teaching units.
Additional   e-safety learning is accessed through  whole school/Key Stage/class assemblies, eg.   NSPCC Speak Out Stay Safe    programme, with additional follow up activities as appropriate.
Safer Internet Day  assemblies and activities are delivered.
Safeguarding relating to  relationships   with peers,   families and  other adults, is delivered through the   PSHCE   curriculum, mapped for all  year groups .
Areas covered include:  friendships; family and close positive relationships; hurtful behaviour and bullying; safe relationships - on and offline. 
Children are taught how to respond to keep themselves safe, using the   NSPCC    'Pants are Private'  resources, delivered through planned termly assemblies.
Road safety    is taught age-appropriately, through   practical activities where possible, eg. use of the  'Street Feet' resources for EYFS; annual   Road Safety Week    assemblies and  age-related activities;   Bikeability Level 1    programme offered to all Year 4s, annually;   Bikeability Level 2  programme offered to all Year 6s, annually.
Water safety   is taught through the   Swimming  (PE)   curriculum, offered in Key Stage 2.
The safeguarding curriculum is enhanced by   occasional visits and visitors, eg. Fire safety and  Fire service visit; visits from   Police Community  Support Officers    re: local concerns, keeping safe online, risks from online gaming etc.
Children are taught  who are the special people in school responsible for keeping them safe, and posters are clearly displayed around school. 
ALL staff build excellent relationships with the children and  fully understand their role in safeguarding.
Children are taught and know that they can talk to any adult in school about anything that is concerning them. 
Staff follow established procedures for reporting and actioning safeguarding concerns.
