At Highlees we have a commitment to safeguard all our children and staff. We feel it is important to regularly give messages about how to keep ourselves safe. We work closely with outside agencies to ensure children are equipped with the right information about how to keep themselves safe and away from harm, and who they can talk to for support. We regularly give children the opportunities to discuss their concerns, and value respect and take seriously any concerns that they raise.
At Highlees we feel it is important to equip all of our children with the skills and knowledge to help them keep themselves healthy and safe. This is done through weekly PSHCE lesson as well as termly Safeguarding weeks.
Safeguarding weeks are an important feature of our curriculum as they ensure we are fulfilling our statutory duties, and allow our children to develop the skills they need to help them in later life. Each week has a different theme, children take part in age appropriate activities, and parents are also invited to take part in activities within the HUB.
