All staff at Park View Academy acknowledges the duty of care to safeguard and promote the welfare of children and is committed to ensuring safeguarding practice reflects statutory responsibilities, government guidance and complies with best practice standards and Ofsted requirements.
Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is everyone’s responsibility. Everyone who comes into contact with children and their families has a role to play. In order to fulfil this responsibility effectively, all professionals should make sure their approach is child -centred. This means they should consider, at all times, what is in the best interests of the child.
At Park View safeguarding is embedded throughout our culture and values with our pupils at the heart of every decision. We strike to ensure that all our children are ‘safe’ and ‘happy’ as well as provide them with strategies for support if they are not. We are committed to providing high quality, strategic preventative work to educate both our children, parents and staff with the aim of keeping all children safe. Please see below for our bespoke safeguarding diagram that details just some of the work we do in each area.
Operation Encompass is a scheme which operates across Merseyside to ensure schools are informed immediately of any domestic incidents which may involve their pupils.
By 9.00am on the next school day the school’s Key Adult will be informed that the child or young person has been involved, heard or witnessed a domestic incident. This knowledge, given to schools through Operation Encompass, allows the provision of immediate early intervention through silent or overt support dependent upon the needs and wishes of the child.
The Key Adults at Park View Academy are Mr Damian Kenny and Miss Debbie Walker.
