When the government published “Every Child Matters” it raised 5 key issues that were deemed essential in the complete development of each and every child:
- Must be and stay safe
- Must be healthy
- Must be able to enjoy and achieve
- Must be able to achieve economic well-being
- Must make a positive contribution
There was a clearly stated need that, while each area of society has an important part to play in child development, schools must embrace the document both individually and collaboratively.
The government has published a policy “Safeguarding Children”
(DfES/027/2004) and this school has used this in formulating its own safeguarding statement.
Our Senior Leadership Team will have the responsibility of ensuring that the school does its best to deliver each of the five key issues.
Ravenscote Community Junior School Safeguarding Children Statement
At Ravenscote the Health and Safety of all children is of paramount importance. Parents send their children to school each day with the expectation that our school provides a secure environment in which their children can flourish through our vision of Engage - Enrich - Excel. We therefore have to ensure that this expectation becomes reality.
