It is the responsibility of all members of staff and governors to ensure that safeguarding is of paramount importance. This includes minimising any safeguarding risks for young people and engendering a culture of vigilance and awareness, in all of our work. It is important to make a clear distinction between safeguarding and child protection. Safeguarding is the work completed with all young people whereas child protection is more concerned with the procedures used for young people who have been harmed or who are at risk.
Safeguarding forms a very large part of the work completed at Roman Fields and it is our number one priority. Our aim is to create a positive culture where safeguarding is an important part of everyday life. We consider ourselves to be ‘outstanding’ and this view is reinforced and validated by a range of outside agencies. Safeguarding training forms an important part of the continuing professional (CPD) of all members of staff at Roman Fields. Safeguarding policies, procedures and systems are tested, reviewed and audited on a very regular basis. Young people are taught the skills, knowledge and awareness to enable them to stay safe both in education and beyond, into their own personal life.
