Safeguarding within GANF

Who is responsible for the Safeguarding of Children?

It is everybody’s responsibility to be vigilant and listen to pupils when they are worried about safeguarding issues.
Within GANF, every member of staff receives Safeguarding training and all staff are made aware of the Safeguarding and Pastoral team.

How safeguarding is included in the curriculum

GANF promotes safety within our pupils by:

Providing circle time everyday to allow pupils the opportunity to discuss issues/barriers as well as allowing topic based discussions. Every pupil receives PSHE lessons where subjects are specifically targeted. The curriculum is therefore enhanced by the organisation of workshops, themed weeks, information days and external resourcing.

For example:

-Road Safety
-Drug & Alcohol Awareness
-Relationship and Sex Education
-Internet Safety
-Establishing links with local community, including PCSO’s & Emergency Services.

At GANF we are committed to giving our pupils the tools and knowledge that is required to keep themselves and each other safe from harm.

NWG is a charity disseminating information to professionals working on the issue of child sexual exploitation and trafficking within the UK. They offer support and advice, provide updates and training, share national developments, raise the profile of CSE and seek to influence the development of national and local policy informed by practice.
GANF are now involved in implementing the campaign in the local area. To support this project, pupils at GANF will be educated about safe and healthy relationships.
