Safeguarding Aims

At Herons’ Moor Academy we aim to:

  • Provide an environment in which everyone feels secure, valued and happy.
  • Develop each child so they become a responsible citizen who will contribute positively to society.
  • Develop a culture of respect through an awareness, understanding and acceptance of others.
  • Provide a supportive and positive learning environment.
  • Value and promote honesty, trust, openness, tolerance, consideration and kindness.
  • Provide appropriate learning opportunities so each child can become responsible for their own learning and work to their maximum potential.
  • Recognise and celebrate all achievement.

Safeguarding Resources

The ‘Thinkuknow’ website has been designed by the Child Exploitation and Online Protection (CEOP) Centre, who you may have seen commenting on issues in the News.  There’s lots of information here for children, parents, carers and teachers. It is a great resource for learning about E-Safety and has some top tips on issues such as social networking. Jessie & Friends is a new series of three animations which aims to give 4-7 year olds the knowledge, skills and confidence to help them respond safely to risks they may encounter online.

‘Childnet’ provides lots of useful links to websites relating to E-Safety for parents and carers.

The Prevent duty became law back in 2015. This is a duty on all schools and registered early years providers to have due regard to preventing people being drawn into terrorism. In order to protect children in our care, we must be alert to any reason for concern in the child’s life at home or elsewhere.
