Safeguarding Our Students
Limpsfield Grange School Safeguarding Offer
At Limpsfield Grange School we are committed to promoting the safety and wellbeing of our whole school community. Safeguarding is our highest priority.
Students can access safeguarding information through our curriculum. Teaching the girls how to stay safe in real life and online is central to the Wellbeing strand of our WACI curriculum and is delivered through Prevent lessons; WACI lessons; Wellbeing Wednesdays and Thinking Thursdays. Students can access staying safe workshops and NSPCC Protect & Respect Sexual Exploitation workshops in our Residential Provision. Each half term our residential students can speak to an Independent Advocate to share any concerns they may have.
Staying safe and staying well are crucial elements of our school offer. We work with students to help them be aware of their emotional, physical and mental health. We have staff who are Mental Health First Aid trained, and students across the school are encouraged to be responsible for maintaining positive mental emotional and physical health.
Displayed around the school are our student safeguarding posters which have pictures of the members of staff who are DSLs and their contact details. We also display around the school posters for Childline and the NSPCC. We have a DSL on site 24 hours a day so that students and staff can share safeguarding concerns with an experienced trained professional at any time.
We are committed to training staff to enable them to deal effectively with safeguarding situations. All staff receive annual safeguarding and online safety training at INSET days. We also offer safeguarding updates each half term through our Hot Topics staff sessions.
