Safeguarding Children

At Mountbatten Primary School, we take very seriously our responsibility to safeguard both children and adults.  The healthy, safety and welfare of our children is high profiles throughout the school and our commitment to this is exemplified in the policies, procedures and processes that are followed.  The need for rigorous guidelines and procedures is important to ensure that this is done with understanding and clarity.  Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is everyone’s responsibility.  Everyone who comes into contact with children and their families has a role to play in safeguarding children.

This school operates a rigorous and robust recruitment process that gathers evidence about candidates’ suitability to work with children as well as their suitability for the post at all stages in the recruitment process.  High levels of vigilance are maintained through rigorous monitoring post appointment.

Not in Our Community

Not in our community has been developed locally (Hull, East Yorkshire, North and North Lincs) and is continually improved with children and young people, including survivors of child sexual exploitation, to help children and young people protect themselves and their friends from grooming and sexual exploitation. Now in its third year, they co-produce resources and stories based on real life events for use on social media and in schools / other groups where children and young people hang out. Their approach, telling it like it really is, helps thousands of children and young people understand how grooming and sexual exploitation works so that they can better protect themselves, spot the warning signs amongst friends and know who they can go to for help.
