'The school’s leaders facilitate a vigilant safeguarding culture. There is no complacency; staff are pro-active and have a solid understanding of the most pertinent risks which the pupils at Brown’s face. This is because staff are well trained, regularly, and in line with the latest statutory guidance' Ofsted
Brown’s School is committed to effectively protecting children and young people from any form of abuse. We aim to always ensure best practice in relation to safeguarding and promoting the well-being of our students. We strive to maintain a transparent and open culture where everyone feels safe and able to share concerns. Concerns relating to Safeguarding are always listened to and taken seriously. We work to enable pupils to develop their understanding of keeping safe. Brown’s School has a robust structure for managing Safeguarding; it has a strong voice in our school and we have a Designated Lead Safeguarding Officer and Deputy Safeguarding Officer responsible for good practice. However, we firmly believe that Safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility. Clear policies and procedures are supported by a commitment to deliver high quality Safeguarding training to all staff working in our school on an ongoing basis. Robust monitoring processes ensure that policy is appropriately applied, and that practice is regularly evaluated. We work in partnership with key agencies involved in Safeguarding to ensure the best possible provisions and outcomes. Recruitment procedures comply with the requirements set out in the DfE Guidance ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education.
Full details of our procedures can be found in our Safeguarding Policy.
