Lickey Hills Primary School and Nursery Safeguarding Statement
This school believes that it is always unacceptable for a child to experience abuse of any kind. We recognise our responsibility to safeguard the welfare of all children. We will provide staff and volunteers with guidance to follow when they suspect a child may be experiencing abuse or at risk of harm. We will work cooperatively with other agencies to safeguard and promote the welfare of children. We will ensure that our concerns about our pupils are discussed with parents/carers first – unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child’s welfare.
The Designated Safeguarding Lead for child protection is Miss A.L. Salisbury
The Deputy Designated Person for child protection is Mrs H. Williams
Additional Designated person for child protection is Miss Z. Lynch
The Governor with responsibility for child protection is Mr S. Bimson
We will review our policy and procedures on an annual basis

E-Safety Information for Parents
New technologies have become integral to the lives of children and young people in today’s society, both within schools and in their lives outside school. The Internet and other digital information and communications technologies are powerful tools, which open up new opportunities for everyone. These technologies can stimulate discussion, promote creativity and stimulate awareness of context to promote effective learning.
Technology can provide great rewards to those that learn to use it well. It’s important that these benefits are received whilst, at the same time, the risks are limited. Young people should have an entitlement to safe internet access at all times.
E-Safety is something that we all need to think about these days. Children are exposed to all manner of things whilst online and just like in the real world, we need to be aware of and consider carefully, our interactions in the digital world.
The video below is suitable for pupils aged 8+ and gives a very useful look into the importance of what and how you share your personal information online. We recommend you watch this first before sharing with your child and then perhaps watch it together so you can answer any questions they may have.
