Staying Safe

Fountaindale School has a statutory duty to safeguard and promote the welfare of it’s pupils. In particular, protecting them from significant harm depends on effective working partnerships between agencies and professionals that have different roles and expertise.

Within our curriculum, students are taught to stay healthy and safe within the community. When moving round the school, staff ensure that students know how to stay safe in daily routines and be aware of possible risks. Pupils are encouraged to discuss any personal concerns they have with their chosen member of staff. If they think there are any risks within school they can be raised at the School Council.

Individual children who are at greatest risk of suffering harm receive a coordinated approach. Fountaindale shares a joint responsibility with Health, Early Years, Social Care, the voluntary sector and other agencies for these very vulnerable children.
