Child protection and Safeguarding policies

Safeguarding- It's everyone's responsibility

At Troon school we are committed to keeping our children safe.

If any of our parents/carers or pupils have any concerns they can speak to our Designated Safeguarding Leads: Mrs Lucy Askew or our Deputy Safeguarding Leads: Mrs Lucy Osborne and Miss Sarah Johns

The school's safeguarding policy applies to all staff, volunteers, Governor's and any external agencies working on the school site. Anyone visiting our school site will be given a copy of the Safeguarding Children Single Agency Induction Training (Inter Collegiate Level 1) leaflet (See below) and are advised who the DSLs are. 

Our staff recruitment process ensure that all staff and volunteers have been appropriately checked for their suitability using the safe recruitment procedures.

We adopt the local CAPH approved Child Protection and Safeguarding Policy for Schools in Cornwall.

Teaching our pupils how they can keep themselves safe is our number one priority. This is weaved into every aspect of our curriculum and daily school life.

All staff receive regular refresher Safeguarding training.

In September we review the updated Keeping Children Safe in Education (KCSIE) with all staff members at INSET.

Staff then complete online training for Tier/Level 2 and KCSIE which assesses their understanding and are awarded certificates for achieving appropriate pass level through our subscription to the Flick Learning platform. Completion of this is monitored in school.
