Safeguarding

Create Safeguarding Statement

 

At Create Partnership Trust we put the safeguarding and wellbeing of the children first and expect all visitors and volunteers to do the same.

 

In our schools children are taught how to keep themselves safe, form positive relationships, and know who to speak to if they need help.

 

We work with our families and sometimes outside agencies to safeguard our pupils. Our staff have a duty of care to report any concerns, and always act in the best interests of the child.

 

For more information please see our Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy on the school website.

Designated Safeguarding Team

You should report concerns to a member of the Designated Safeguarding Team (DST) immediately who will deal with the concerns and inform the Designated Senior Lead (DSL).

 

If a member of the DST is not available, you should inform the Chief Executive Officer (CEO).
 
If anything worries you or concerns you, report it straight away.

Working Together to Safeguard Children Guidance

Hodge Hill Primary Safeguarding Policy

Right Help, Right Time

In line with Birmingham Safeguarding Children Partnership, Hodge Hill Primary follows the refreshed threshold guidance “Right Help, Right Time” (RHRT). This framework has provided everyone at Hodge Hill Primary with clear advice about what to do and how to respond if a child and their family need extra help. Our DSLs, have attended the required training suggested by the RHRT Multi-Agency so have embedded the RHRT guidance within the day to day practice of the school. Our staff regularly receive training so they know that the voice of the child is at the centre of their planning, decision making and service delivery.

 

For further information on the materials provided by RHRT, read the following documents:

Below are links to external organisations that we work with to safeguard our children.

Online Safety Workshop

 

The purpose of this workshop was to highlight the dangers that arise when using the internet. The danger of never really being sure with whom children are communicating with on-line via chat rooms and social media platforms.

 

Using the school’s cameras, the children took turns to photograph the two ‘set pieces’ detailed below:

  1. To illustrate that the children were hoping to be communicating with another child, they began by photographing two of their peers. They were posed back to back and pretended to be using a smart phone device.
     
  2. The second photograph featured one child moved further back and the child nearest the camera having slipped on adult over-clothes. This was to illustrate that they might be talking to an unknown grown-up over the internet.
