Safeguarding & Child Protection 

Braidwood is committed to Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. To achieve our commitment, we ensure continuous development and improvement of robust Safeguarding processes and procedures that promote a culture of Safeguarding amongst our staff and volunteers. Consequently, all adults working in school are required to complete a DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) Enhanced Police Check.

Braidwood aims to work in close partnership with parents to support the children in every way possible. However, there is a clear responsibility on all schools to ensure they work together with other agencies to safeguard and promote the welfare of all children.

It may be helpful for parents to know that the Local Authority requires Headteachers to report any obvious or suspected case of child abuse which includes non-accidental injury, severe physical neglect, emotional abuse and/or sexual abuse. This procedure is intended to protect children at risk and schools are encouraged to take the attitude that where there are grounds for suspicion it is better to be safe than sorry. This does mean that Headteachers risk upsetting some parents by reporting a case, which on investigation proves unfounded. In such circumstances, it is hoped that parents, appreciating how difficult it is for Headteachers to carry out this delicate responsibility, would accept that the Head Teacher was acting in what were believed to be the child’s best interests.

As a result, if concerns are raised within the school, or a child or parent reports a situation involving possible abuse, we are required to refer such matters to the appropriate Children’s Services, in line with the Government and Birmingham Children’s Safeguarding Board. Information sharing may take place between Police and school.

Braidwood is committed to keeping our learners safe, both in school and the wider community. As part of our safeguarding arrangements, we have a two-way information sharing agreement in place with West Midlands Police. The agreement is compliant with Crime & Disorder Act 1998 (s.115) and Data Protection Act 1998(s.29.3; s.35.2.), and focuses on preventing young people from becoming involved or further involved in crime and anti-social behaviour as a victim or offender. If you have any queries about the partnership policy, please contact the Designated Safeguarding Lead - Charlotte Nock 0121 464 5558 c.nock@braidwood.bham.sch.uk

If as a parent or carer you are concerned by what your child is accessing on-line NSPCC launched a public education campaign called Shareaware, aimed at helping parents of 8-12 year olds to keep their children safe online.
