We ensure that children are taught about safeguarding and how it keeps them safe.  The school's curriculum includes opportunities to explicitly teach the children about safeguarding.  Areas of the curriculum with particularly strong opportunities for children to develop the skills they need to recognise and stay safe from abuse include PSHE, Relationships Education and Sex Education and the Computing curriculum.  Relevant issues are also addressed should they become apparent for particular children or groups of children. We also recognise that 'a one size fits all' approach is not  appropriate for all children, and a more personalised or contextualised approach for more vulnerable children, victims of abuse and some SEND children may be needed.
