Safeguarding in the Curriculum

The Design of the Curriculum

The curriculum deals with safeguarding in two key ways:


1) Stand alone topics which are explored, such as; Pol-Ed lessons, Unity afternoons, PANTS, Theme days (Online Safety, NSPCC Number Day etc) and Assemblies.

Children are encouraged to explore and discuss these issues together and with their teachers. We also discuss a wide range of issues around safety and wellbeing on a very regular basis in assemblies.

2) Regular lessons following an approved scheme of work, such as; Jigsaw PSHE lessons, ICT Lessons. Staff follow schemes of work to ensure a broad and balanced curriculum offer is provided to all pupils.
