At Temple Moor High School, we are committed to the safeguarding of our students.
Our safeguarding of students at Temple Moor is based on three levels:
Universal – Our aim to is keep all students safe by creating and maintaining an appropriate environment. This includes excellent site safety, safer recruitment of staff, clear school rules related to behaviour and attendance and a rounded curricula experience focusing on a student’s Personal Development. This includes a focus on topics such as, RSE (relationships and sex education, personal and online safety awareness, and mental health awareness.
Targeted – The focus here is on groups of students whose personal, social or economic circumstances may result in an increased risk to their safety. For example, looked after children, students with special educational needs, children subjected to racism etc. In such cases, children are provided with additional input, for example through our Pastoral Team and Safer Schools Officer.
Responsive– This is when we have to respond quickly and appropriately to situations where students may be or have suffered harm. This is our support through our strong child protection procedures. All school staff have undertaken annual Child Protection training and understand how to follow school systems for the recording and actioning of concerns. We work closely with our external partners, such as Education Safeguarding, West Yorkshire Police and CAMHS.
Our focus is to ensure that we uphold the highest standards of professionalism and knowledge in working with children and families on areas including:
