Keeping Children Safe



At Glade Hill Primary & Nursery School, the governors and staff fully recognise the contribution the school makes to safeguarding children. We recognise that the safety and protection of all pupils is of paramount importance and that all staff, including volunteers, have a full and active part to play in providing early help protecting pupils from harm. We believe that the school should provide a caring, positive, safe and stimulating environment which promotes all pupils’ social, physical, emotional and moral development. In delivering this ambition we will adhere to the principles set out in Nottingham’s Family Support Strategy and NCSCP Policy, Procedures and Practice Guidance.


Ultimately, effective safeguarding of children can only be achieved by putting children at the centre of the system, and by every individual and agency playing their full part, working together to meet the needs of our most vulnerable children, in line with the School's Safeguarding policy, Working Together to Safeguard Children 2018 (updated Dec 2020), and Keeping Children Safe in Education 2020 (updated in January 2021 following the EU exit).

As a school, we take part in the NSPCC's 'Speak out. Stay Safe' programme. 


This consists of an online assembly and supporting classroom-based activities.  Speak out. Stay safe.  is a safeguarding programme available to all primary schools in the UK.  It aims to help children understand abuse in all its forms and to recognise the signs of abuse in a child friendly, interactive way. Children are taught to speak out if they are worried, either to a trusted adult or Childline.


For this year, the NSPCC have developed an online version of their Speak out. Stay safe. programme to help overcome some of the challenges that the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has presented in relation to having external speakers in school.
