Safeguarding at Longmoor

We are all part of the wider school ‘Safeguarding Team’ and work together to keep the children in our care safe and well. In school we have several members of senior staff who are responsible for ensuring that our Safeguarding policies, practices and procedures are implemented and maintained.

Longmoor Community Primary School works within the framework of the Liverpool Safeguarding Children’s Board (LSCB) in relation to Child Protection.

At Longmoor Community Primary School we are committed to providing a safe and stimulating environment in which children are challenged to achieve their full potential.’

The Safeguarding Curriculum

In our school, one of our most important jobs is teaching our learners how to keep themselves safe. This could be in a wide range of different circumstances: road safety, sun safety, online safety and personal safety to name a few.

In school, our ‘PSHE & RSE’ curriculum includes key topics and messages that are covered in each year group (online safety is covered through our Computing curriculum). Some really important messages are included every year at an age appropriate level. We try our best to link these messages with other curriculum areas and accept any help from professionals, theatre companies and charitable organisations to help deliver these vital messages to our children.

Operation Encompass

In conjunction with Merseyside Police, our school is involved in an initiative called Operation Encompass. The purpose of Operation Encompass is to safeguard and support children and young people who have been involved in, heard or witnessed a domestic abuse incident. Following such an incident, children will often arrive at school distressed, upset, worried and unprepared.

Operation Encompass aims to ensure that appropriate school staff (called Key Adults) are made aware early enough to support children and young people in a way that means they feel safe and included.

At our school, the Key Adults are Mrs. E. Garside (Designated Safeguarding Lead) and Mr. Garside (Headteacher).

This is a valuable initiative that means we can continue to support and help children and families within our school community when they need it most. If you have any questions about Operation Encompass please do not hesitate to contact our Key Adults.
