Staff in school, by law, have a duty to report any concerns that they may have that any child may be suffering significant harm, particularly as a consequence of possible abuse. It is a Department for Education requirement that each school in the country nominates a senior member of staff who will have special responsibility for Child Protection. At the Curzon Cof E Primary School, we have two members of staff who have received advanced safeguarding training.
The school has a policy on Safeguarding, which has been agreed by the Governing Body. As a school, we have close contacts with the School Health Service, Children's Services and the Police, any or all of who may become involved if abuse is suspected or alleged. The school has a responsibility to collate basic information such as who has parental responsibility for a child, and to pass this information to the relevant agencies if so requested. In the event of an investigation into possible child abuse, the school has a duty to cooperate with the investigating agencies to the best of their ability to promote the welfare of the child. Whilst the school will always attempt to work in partnership with parents and carers, and try to ensure that they are fully informed of, and participate in, any action concerning their child, if there is a conflict of interest; the welfare of the child must be the paramount consideration.
The school takes very seriously the appointing of new staff and follows the 'Safer Recruitment' advice from the Local Authority. Our staff and volunteers are DBS checked to ensure all our pupils stay safe.

As part of The Curzon's ongoing safeguarding and child protection duties, we are fully behind the government’s Prevent Strategy
From 1 July 2015, all schools have been subject to a duty under section 26 of the Counter-Terrorism and Security Act 2015, in the exercise of their functions, to have “due regard to the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism”. This duty is known as the Prevent Duty for Schools.
At The Curzon , we build pupils’ resilience to radicalisation by promoting fundamental British values and enabling our pupils to challenge extremist views.
