Safeguarding in the Curriculum


Safeguarding is the highest priority within Clapham Manor Primary School. Our safeguarding procedures and training are of the highest standard to ensure that staff remain vigilant. We recognise the need to raise pupils’ awareness of safeguarding through different aspects of learning i.e. the curriculum, assemblies and newsletters. 

The school admits varies abilities of pupils and so the approach to deliver safeguarding will vary significantly. For instance, learning the rules, acceptable behaviour, learning through use of visuals and discussions to encourage learning through safe routines. 

Below is an example of the work we do to keep children safe:

Keeping Safe - Phase 1-3

The Legal Context for Safeguarding Education:

These duties are set out in the 2002 Education Act which refers to the broad and balanced curriculum. Schools also have statutory responsibilities in relation to promoting pupil wellbeing and pupil safeguarding (Children Act 2004) and community cohesion (Education Act 2006). The Equality Act 2010 also places duties on schools to help to reduce prejudice-based bullying and in doing so to keep protected characteristic groups safe. PSHE education plays an important part in fulfilling all of the responsibilities (see further detail on PSHE education and safeguarding, below). 

All schools have responsibilities relating to the safety of children in their care. Paragraph 41 of statutory guidance on Keeping Children Safe in Education, the Department for Education states: 

“Schools should consider how children may be taught about safeguarding, including online, through teaching and learning opportunities. This may include covering relevant issues through PSHE …”
