Safeguarding

Tillingbourne School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. We are fully committed to ensuring that consistent effective safeguarding procedures are in place to support families, children and staff at school. All concerns are passed through the members of staff who are trained as "Designated Safe Guarding Lead” in school in compliance with the "sharing of information" guidance.

The Designated Safeguarding Lead is Jo Oliver supported by Tim Cheesman, Maria Lo Conte and Sandra Haynes.

If you have any serious concerns about your child or any other pupil at Tillingbourne School please do not hesitate to contact the Designated Safeguarding Lead who knows who to contact for the best advice and help and is experienced in using the appropriate degree of confidentiality.

PREVENT Strategy

An integral part of our safeguarding work relates to the government’s PREVENT strategy, which is designed to stop radicalisation and the duties it places on all academic institutions. All adults in our school, whether or not they have direct contact with children, are committed to providing a secure environment for pupils, where children feel safe and are kept safe.

With regard to radicalisation, staff will be trained to be alert to specific issues, including:

  • Disclosures by pupils of their exposure to the extremist actions, views or materials outside of school, such as in their homes, community groups or on line
  • Parental reports of changes in behaviour, friendship or actions and requests for assistance
  • Use of extremist or ‘hate’ terms to exclude others or incite violence
  • Intolerance of difference, whether secular or religious or, in line with our equalities policy, views based on, but not exclusive to, gender, disability, homophobia, race, colour or culture.
