Curwen Primary School



Curwen Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all its pupils. We believe that:

  • All children have the right to be protected from harm;
  • Children need to be safe and to feel safe in school;
  • Children need support which matches their individual needs, including those who may have experienced abuse;
  • All children have the right to speak freely and voice their values and beliefs;
  • All children must be encouraged to respect each other’s values and support each other;
  • All children have the right to be supported to meet their emotional, and social needs as well as their educational needs – a happy healthy sociable child will achieve better educationally;
  • Schools can and do contribute to the prevention of abuse, victimisation, bullying, exploitation, radicalisation, extreme behaviours, discriminatory views and risk taking behaviours; and
  • All staff and visitors have an important role to play in safeguarding children and protecting them from abuse.

Safeguarding is defined as

  • Protecting children from maltreatment;
  • Preventing impairment of children's health or development;
  • Ensuring that children are growing up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care; and
  • Taking action to enable all children to have the best life chances.

Curwen Primary school will fulfil their local and national responsibilities as laid out in the following documents:

Free online safety course for Parents/Carers

Online safety in schools is of paramount importance. As the online world evolves, so do the online risks facing children.

Parents and carers play a pivotal part in keeping their children safe online. Online risks do not start and stop at the school gates, and encouraging and supporting parents to become involved in their child’s online safety at home will ensure they are receiving the most complete protection they possibly can.

In the ongoing partnership with parents and school, we are offering you the opportunity to complete a free online safety course.

Please set yourself up via the link below (account type 'parent') and get started!
