Safeguarding at Evergreen Primary Academy

Evergreen Primary Academy takes the safety of pupils, parents and staff very seriously.

It is everyone’s responsibility to act if they feel that a child is not being cared for properly, is being harmed or is at risk of harm.

If you are worried that a child is being harmed, or is at risk of being harmed, please speak to Ms Barkham, Designated Safeguarding Lead, Mrs Vincent, Deputy Safeguarding Lead, Mrs Munro, EYFS Lead, or Mrs Duale, office administrator.

E-Safety

The Internet has become an everyday part of our lives. We use it daily to improve teaching and learning, to get information from around the world, talk to friends and help with our work.

However, it is important that we all learn how to be responsible online both at home and at school.  At Evergreen Primary Academy we take this matter very seriously. We follow government advice on best practice. Please help us to support your children by looking at the links below which provide important information on how to keep safe online:

Prevent Duty

Prevent is part of the United Kingdom’s counter terrorism strategy. It aims to prevent people from becoming involved in terrorism or supporting terrorism.

Evergreen Primary Academy is committed to supporting the Prevent Strategy in order to protect everyone from radicalisation.

At Evergreen Primary Academy we promote British Values (The Rule of Law, Democracy, Individual Liberty and Mutual Respect and Tolerance of the Beliefs of Others) and enable our pupils to challenge any extremist views.

If you have a concern about someone who is at risk of radicalisation, please contact the safeguarding team.
