How Safeguarding is included in the curriculum:
GANF promotes safety within our pupils by giving them the tools and knowledge that is required to keep themselves and each other safe from harm. Pupils are taught about safeguarding in school. Pupils are provided the opportunity to discuss issues and barriers during circle time. Every pupil recieves PSHE lessons where subjects are specifically targeted. The curriculum is also enhanced by the organisation of workshops, themed weeks, information days and external resourcing.

The following areas are among those addressed in PSHE and in the wider curriculum: 
•Bullying including cyberbullying
•Drugs, alcohol and substance abuse 
•Online safety
•Stranger danger
•Fire and water safety
•Road safety
•Domestic abuse
•Healthy relationships and consent
•Establishing links with local community, including PCSO’s & Emergency Services.
