Rugby School Group firmly believes all children have a right to achieve their potential and to be protected from all forms of harm, including abuse and neglect, and that our staff have a particularly important role in the wider safeguarding system for children as they are in a position to identify concerns early and take action to secure help for children who need it.
We take a child centred approach to safeguarding and emphasises through training, the need to listen to children and to pay attention to changes in behaviour, presentation and demeanour, as these may be indicators of abuse.
The Governing Body, the Heads, the Executive Headmaster and Group staff are committed to the physical, emotional and spiritual well-being of all the children in their care. Both children and adults need a safe open and secure environment in which to live and work. Our safeguarding policy applies to all staff, governors and adult volunteers and to contact both inside and outside normal School hours. All students, including those who are 18-years-old and are considered to be vulnerable adults are to be regarded as children in the implementation of this policy.
We are committed to implementing good safeguarding practice and recognise that safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility and that anyone can make a referral to social care. We follow the procedures of the Warwickshire Safeguarding Children Partnership Guidance on making a referral which can be found at www.safeguardingwarwickshire.co.uk/safeguarding-children
