Moat Hall is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of al its children. All staff, volunteers and students who work with the school are given clear guidelines in how to work with children and are trained to report any concerns about a child's well being. Children know they can talk to an adult they trust if they have any worries. Our safeguarding procedures are monitored by Governors and Staffordshire County Council. We follow safer recruitment procedures when appointing new staff and volunteers. Our staff undertake annual training to ensure that the welfare and safety of our children remains paramount.
Further information can be found from Staffordshire Safeguarding Children's Board.
PREVENT is a Government strategy designed to prevent people becoming or supporting terrorists or extremist causes. From July 2015, all schools have a duty to safeguard children from radicalisation and extremism and to provide a safe place for pupils to discuss their issues so they better understand how to protect themselves. In school we help children to become positive and happy members of society by:
- promoting diversity by exploring other religions and cultures
- challenging racist comments and prejudice
- building strong, positive self-identities
- promoting spiritual, moral, social and cultural development
- denying access to any extremist/terrorist material on the internet
- promoting British values
