The welfare of our children is of paramount importance to all members of our community, and safeguarding is a key responsibility of all staff at Naburn CE Primary School. Teachers and teaching assistants undergo training in Safeguarding which includes includes, but is not limited to, Child Protection and Prevent (the name given to the training which aims to prevent young children becoming radicalised) with the relevant staff also completing training in Safer Recruitment and First Aid. All staff and governors complete a ‘Basic Awareness’ qualification in Safeguarding as part of the induction process.
Staff safeguarding training is completed annually; this training also includes attendees reading and agreeing to the DFE’s Keeping Children Safe in Education (part 1) and the Safeguarding & Child Protection Policy, which can be found in the Safeguarding section on our Policies and Documents page.

At Naburn CE Primary we use CPOMS as part of our approach to Safeguarding. CPOMS is the market leading software solution for monitoring Safeguarding, wellbeing and all pastoral issues. CPOMS (Child Protection Online Management System) helps schools record concerns and incidents, enabling schools to identify trends and patterns, and allowing us to intervene earlier and better support vulnerable pupils.
