Safeguarding and Child Protection 

At Nailsea we place great emphasis on the health, safety and wellbeing of every student. We take all concerns seriously as we want all our students to enjoy their time at Nailsea School. 

We fully recognise our responsibilities for child protection and safeguarding the young people under our care. We have a strong policy that applies to all staff, governors and volunteers that conforms to statutory guidance, and we ensure that we comply with the Safer Recruitment requirements of the Department for Education. Our policy is available for parents/ carers to see.

Our Designated Safeguarding Lead for child protection will be happy to discuss any questions or concerns that parents or carers may have about child protection policies and practice. 

Nailsea staff undergo a continuing programme of training to ensure that they are up to date with the latest issues with regards to child protection. In recent years this has included basic awareness training from the NSPCC on recognising the signs of abuse, and awareness training on Female Genital Mutilation and radicalisation. 

Safeguarding issues are also integrated into our curriculum so that students are empowered to both keep themselves safe and to be able to identify possible concerns about their friends and know who to pass these on.

The email address for non-urgent matters is safeguardingteam@nailseaschool.com but it is always best to talk with one of the team in person.
