Our safeguarding team at Beaumont Primary Academy:
Your child's safety is of paramount importance to us and it is something which we regularly talk to your children about. As part of our commitment to the being a United Nations Rights Respecting School, your children understand that they have a right to be safe at all times. (United Nations Children's Rights Charter; Article 19 The right to be safe)
The right to be safe is the basic premise upon which we are building our academy. As part of our curriculum we teach about safety in many different ways, for example behaving in ways which allow everyone their right to be safe. If a child chooses to behave in a way that takes away some one else's right to be safe, we use the language for example: 'When you pushed Tom, you took away his right to be safe . Everyone has the right to be safe. What could you have done differently?.' In using the language of safety, children quickly build a strong understanding of the right choices to make in keeping themselves and others safe.
We also teach about safety in many ways as part of our currciulum- some examples are involving children in risk assessments for visits, practicing road crossing, understanding online safety, stranger danger and safety outside including using equipment safely.
Safeguarding curriculum- please will you remove this as it is very out of date (sally, please would you be able to pull together a more generic one which does not have dates on but gives an idea of what is being done at BPA)
All Kirklees Schools, including Beaumont Primary Academy follow the procedure set by the Kirklees Safeguarding Children's Board (KSCB). If you do not feel safe or if you are worried about the safety of someone else, please speak to us about any concerns.
