At Rolleston Primary School we are passionate about and committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and we expect all staff and visitors to share this commitment.
We are fully committed to ensuring that consistent effective safeguarding procedures are in place to support families, children and staff at school. We have robust policies in place for ensuring the wellbeing of our children. These policies underpin our practice and values shared by every single member of staff in our school. Copies are available from the school office.
As a school, we have a legal duty to prevent extremism, and as a result, we are adopting the guidance of the Leicester Safeguarding Children Board. To read this information, please click here.
Any concerns about children are passed through the members of staff who are trained as “Designated Safeguarding Leads” in the school in compliance with the “sharing of information” guidance.
As of 3rd September 2018, Keeping Children Safe in Education was updated. Our policy and procedures have also been updated to incorporate the changes.
What to do if you are concerned about a child.

Areas of Safeguarding
Safeguarding in the Curriculum
PSHE education lessons provide the best context for this learning, as part of a whole school approach and can contribute to safeguarding by:
We are working with staff, pupils and parents / carers to create a school community which values the use of new technologies in enhancing learning, encourages responsible use of ICT, and follows agreed policies to minimise potential e-safety risks.
Our school community:
Discusses, monitors and reviews our e-safety policy on a regular basis. Good practice suggests the policy should be reviewed annually or at most every two years.
Supports staff in the use of ICT as an essential tool for enhancing learning and in the embedding of e-safety across the whole school curriculum.
Ensures that pupils are aware, through e-safety education, of the potential e-safety risks associated with the use of ICT and mobile technologies, that all e-safety concerns will be dealt with sensitively and effectively; that pupils feel able and safe to report incidents; and that pupils abide by the school’s e-safety policy.
Provides opportunities for parents/carers to receive e-safety education and information, to enable them to support their children in developing good e-safety behaviour. The school will report back to parents / carers regarding e-safety concerns. Parents/carers in turn work with the school to uphold the e-safety policy.
