Keeping Children safe is everyone’s responsibility. All pupils have the right to be safe and protected from abuse. At The Godolphin Junior Academy all staff share responsibility in working together to try and make this a reality for our pupils. Information and training is provided to all staff regularly on safeguarding procedures and government guidance. On arrival at Godolphin all visitors are provided with a safeguarding leaflet enlisting our school's key safeguarding information and procedures.
Meet our Safeguarding Team:
Streamlining our Safeguarding Processes and Procedures
At GJA we use a software called CPOMS to record all of our safeguarding information in a safe and secure format. This system works well alongside all of our existing safeguarding processes.
Having access to CPOMS means that every member of staff can log safeguarding information into a secure system and it will be immediately sent to the safeguarding team. The safeguarding team uses the CPOMS tool to analyse information and then set in place actions and strategies to make sure all of our pupils are supported and kept safe.
PSHE Jigsaw and Safeguarding
At The Godolphin Junior Academy, we teach the scheme 'Jigsaw' for our PSHE lessons. This scheme teaches safeguarding explicitly and implicitly throughout the lessons. The document below outlines how this is achieved.
Key Safeguarding Documents
At Godolphin every effort is made to ensure that our pupils understand how to stay safe and behave online. Online safety is built into many different parts of the GJA Curriculum. Furthermore we regularly communicate and share with our parents tips, advice and information on how to keep their children safe online.
National Online Safety (NOS) provides a multi award winning online safety education for the whole school community, helping schools to meet their statutory safeguarding and curriculum requirements through the most comprehensive online safety programme for educators, parents and children.
