Safeguarding

The Trust and staff of Meridian High School are committed to providing a safe and secure environment for students, staff and visitors and promoting a climate where students and adults will feel confident about sharing any concerns they may have about their own safety or the well-being of others.

Meridian High School acknowledges the duties conferred by statute, including the Children Acts 1989 & 2004, Section 175 of the 2002 Education Act, the Protection of Freedoms Act 2012 and the guidance contained in ‘Working Together to Safeguard Children’ (1), ‘What To Do If You’re Worried A Child Is Being Abused’ (2), the current DfE Circular ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education’ (3), as well as procedures produced by the London Borough of Croydon for use with its schools, including the Early Help Pathways Operational Guidance (4). The school safeguarding policy is applicable to all on and off-site activities undertaken by students whilst they are the responsibility of the school.

There are four main elements to the school’s safeguarding work with students:

  • Prevention - Through the teaching and pastoral support offered to students and providing a safe environment. We also inform students of potential risks and their ‘stay safe’ responsibilities, through assemblies and other activities.
  • Procedures for identifying and reporting cases, or suspected cases, of abuse.
  • Support to students who may have been abused or are at risk of abuse.
  • Ensuring that we practise safe recruitment, checking the suitability of staff and volunteers to work with children.

For staff to report a safeguarding concern, follow this link and use the school provided password you have been given.

E-safety: Staying safe online

We would urge parents and carers to monitor their child’s online activity as closely as they would monitor any contact their child has with other children and adults in the ‘reality’ world.

Online abuse and concerns can be reported to the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (CEOP).

These resources have been produced by CEOP for use with children and young people. Parents and carers are encouraged to look at them in order to help them to understand some of the potential risks and to help them monitor their child’s activities online.
