Safeguarding at Glebe Academy

Staff and Governors at Glebe Academy are aware that many children are the victims of different kinds of abuse and that they can be subjected to social factors that have an adverse impact upon their lives – including domestic violence, substance misuse, bullying,  mental health and radicalisation. We also acknowledge that safeguarding incidents could happen anywhere and staff should be alert to possible concerns arising.

Through our curriculum we teach children to stay safe and happy. We encourage the understanding that any problem or worry that they may have is legitimate, and to share their worries, big or small with their trusted adult; at home; school or with ChildLine.

 Prevent Strategy

Prevent is a government strategy designed to stop people becoming terrorists or supporting terrorist or extremist causes. Many of the things we do in school to help pupils become positive, happy members of society also contribute to the Prevent strategy.

Anti-bullying 

Keeping safe from bullying is an integral part of our RSHE curriculum. Through our Values-based curriculum pupils learn how to behave towards each other promoting the British values of tolerance and mutual respect.
In our recent safeguarding review, pupils told us that bullying is extremely rare, children spoke confidently about different types of bullying and what to do if they were being bullied. Children were able to distinguish between ad hoc name calling and persistent bullying as a result of our teaching and approach to bullying.

What is online safety?

This is the safe use of the internet for gaming and communication. It included devices such as laptops, tablets, smartphones and games consoles. It is important that children and young people understand the benefits, risks and responsibilities of using and sharing information online.
