Ifield Community College is committed to safeguarding, promoting the welfare and safety of all students. We want to make sure all our students are safe in school, at home, on line and in the community. We strive to ensure that consistent and effective safeguarding procedures are in place to support families, students and staff at school. Our staff have an important role, working together with parents and guardians, to ensure that our students are safe and secure and to promote their personal safety and wellbeing.

We have policies and procedures in place to deal effectively with child protection and safeguarding issues, which include tackling radicalisation and extremism, together with recording and monitoring processes. All our staff have received Prevent training. All staff undertake relevant safeguarding training when they start at the school and receive updates as appropriate. The training is monitored and comprehensive records kept by the DMS.

Safeguarding Guidance for Schools

Keeping Children Safe in Education 2018

All concerns are passed through members of staff who are trained as ‘Designated Child Protection Officers’ in school in compliance with the HM ‘sharing of information’ guidance March 2015. Staff are required to report any causes of concern to the school safeguarding team. Referrals are logged and monitored to make sure that they are followed up appropriately.

To promote a safe environment for students, Ifield Community College employs a strict selection and recruitment policy which includes all statutory checks on staff and regular volunteers including Enhanced DBS (disclosure and barring service) checks.

If you have any concerns about your child, another student or a member of staff at Ifield Community College please contact the Designated Safeguarding Member of staff(DMS) who will be able to provide you with the best advice and help using the appropriate degree of confidentiality.
