Welcome toRushall CE VA SchoolWith Christ We Can

Safeguarding and E-safety

Safeguarding the welfare and well-being of our pupils, and protecting them from harm is our prime concern at Rushall Primary School.


Safeguarding encompasses issues such as child protection, pupil health and safety, online safety, bullying/cyber-bullying, appropriate medical provision, drugs and substance misuse. These areas have specific policies and guidance, which can be found on our website.


Should you have any queries or wish to raise concerns, please do not hesitate to contact any of our Safeguarding Team.


Preventing Radicalisation in school

Building resilience in our young people and the promotion of fundamental British values is at the heart of preventing radicalisation. We do this by providing a safe place in which children can discuss issues, and we aim to give them the knowledge and confidence to challenge extremist beliefs and ideologies.

The Prevent duty is carried out under the Counter-Terrorism and Security Act 2015, which legally requires schools to take steps to prevent pupils from being drawn into terrorism. Rushall Primary takes this duty seriously and carries out the four main actions responsibly, namely: risk assessment, working in partnership, staff training and policies. If we assess a child as at risk, we refer to the Channel Programme, which focuses on providing support at an early stage to people who are identified as being vulnerable to being drawn into terrorism.

Senior staff have received WRAP training (Workshop to Raise Awareness of Prevent ) and have trained staff to familiarise them with the Prevent Duty. We recognise that we play a vital role in keeping children safe from harm, including from the risks of extremism and radicalisation, and in promoting the welfare of children in our care.


What we do if there is a concern

If we have a concern about a particular pupil we will follow the school’s normal safeguarding procedures, including discussing with the school’s designated safeguarding leads, and where deemed necessary, with children’s social care.

We may also contact the local police force or dial 101 (the non-emergency number). They can talk to us in confidence about concerns and help us gain access to support and advice.
