The staff at The Globe Primary Academy fully recognises the contribution it can make to safeguard and protect the pupils in its care. The school follows stringent safer recruitment procedures in the appointment of staff and robust checks for all visitors to school. All personnel receive regular training and updates in safeguarding the welfare of children both in and out of school.

Parents and carers should be aware that the school will take any reasonable action to ensure the safety of its pupils. In cases where a member of staff has reason to be concerned that a child may be subject to significant harm, ill-treatment, neglect, emotional or other forms of abuse, staff will follow the advice and child protection procedures of the West Sussex Safeguarding Children Board (WSSCB) and inform Social Care of any concerns.

We understand that computing and the Internet are a fundamental part of society and therefore have a whole-school approach to the development of computing skills. Education around safe use is essential and lessons in online safety are conducted throughout the academic year to empower pupils to take control of their own ‘e-learning’ whilst developing an understanding of how to stay safe online.
