The Federation of Bishop Sutton and Stanton Drew Primary Schools are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of our children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

If you have any concerns regarding the safety of a child, please speak to Mr Cook in the first instance.

Mr Cook is the DSL (Designated Safeguarding Lead) and Mr Marriott is the Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead (DDSL). Mrs Diane Dimmock is the nominated safeguarding governor. We all meet regularly to discuss any concerns and make sure that children are safe.

Our Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy can be found here.

Prevent and Briish Values

The Federation supports the UK Government ‘Prevent Strategy’ and ‘Educate Against Hate’ initiatives as part of our safeguarding of children. From 1st July 2015, all schools are subject to having ‘due regard to the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism’. (This is known as the Prevent Duty for Schools).

At the Federation, we promote the five key British Values (Democracy, The Rule of Law, Tolerance of the beliefs of others, Mutual Respect and Individual Liberty) and enable our children to challenge any extremist views. Ask the children – they should all know!

The role of the curriculum

Our curriculum promotes respect, tolerance and diversity. We are committed to ensuring that our pupils are offered a broad and balanced curriculum that aims to prepare them for life in modern Britain. Children are encouraged to share their views and recognise that they are entitled to have their own different beliefs. It is particularly important that we teach children to celebrate differences, as we want our children to become better citizens in their communities with a strong set of personal values, as well as strong cultural and religious awareness.
